A New Gig on "Mormon Women"

Mormon Women

I don't know how many of you are aware of a site called Mormon Women: Who We Are. The purpose of this blog, as I understand it, is to provide a real voice and give real faces to LDS women across the internet...to debunk myths and break down stereotypes of who we are, replacing these with facts and information straight from the horse's mouth (or mouths, as it were). Not that I'm calling us a bunch of nags (old, gray, or otherwise), of course.

The thing is, I've agreed to join their creative team and become a regular contributor, and today I have posted an introduction of myself that you might want to check out. For longtime readers of Sue's News, Views 'n Muse, I think you may actually learn a couple of things about me that you didn't know before. Yes folks, after 500 posts, I still have secrets to reveal. LOTS of 'em. (There now. Doesn't that give me an air of mystery?) All undeserved, I fear. But, no matter...

Anyway, in March of last year, the talented woman behind this endeavor wrote me an e-mail asking whether I would be interested in participating occasionally on the website by writing an essay or submitting poetry. We continued discussing the idea and agreed, rather casually, that they would be free to publish some poems and that I would, perhaps, write some personal essays in the future. More recently, due to a hiatus or two behind the scenes, Michelle decided a new team member was needed and asked me if I could fill that bill. Knowing that what I really need in my life is more time on the internet (?!), I agreed.

So there it is. The continuing tale of my over-involvement in computer-related activity and writing in general. What can I say? Mea culpa. And...

How sweet it is!

;)

PS. Okay, now. If you haven't yet put yourself in the running to win the Austen special editions or Ronna's tote, you need to click on my 500th Giveaway Post right now, and get it done. Don't be shy! You are my readers; I value each one of you, and I want to give you something back! So work with me here. ;)

You will be a great addition to "Mormon Women" I know. I am sure, too, that you will enjoy one more writing project. No wonder your husband calls himself a "computer widower". How do you have time for anything else in your life? Still, I know how much you enjoy it, and we certainly enjoy reading your almost daily blog and I am sure you will find a way to incorporate it into your life without neglecting all the other important things in your life. You are nothing if not organized!

We are so thrilled to have Sue as part of the Mormon Women creative team. There's that word -- create!

Sue's been someone who has stood out to me for a while as a wise, articulate, loving, faithful woman. The lag time between our initial discussions and this recent invitation really doesn't reflect how much I have wanted you to be part of the team all along. I think the site just needed some time to grow first. ;) Probably my mistake for not being more insistent that you be part of that early process, though.

Anyway, thanks again.
