Editor's Note image

This Month's Editor: Wordsmitty ✍️

Well, the WDC birthday is over, the GPs have flown this way and that, and even The StoryMistress had her birthday to boot. September is a good birthday month. Actually, that seems like a good topic for this month's Feature. Sure enough. Just scroll down and you'll find an article about Birthday Blogging.

After that, you'll encounter this month's Editor's Picks. No birthdays in it though, but lots of great entries to read and possibly comment.

Also, don't forget to check out the bloggers who have started new blogs and those who've restarted old ones. Give them a shout back in the Comments to keep them blogging and become part of the community.

And remember that if you have a good blog entry that you want more visibility or make it stick out, go add it to the

Keep on Bloggin'!

Birthday Blogging

by Wordsmitty ✍️

Every day is someone's or something's birthday. What a great reason to blog. Unfortunately, there isn't a Birthday Blogging Prompt or Activity - or is there? *THINKER*  I guess not. It's a great idea, but just blogging about birthdays must be fun.

Everyone has a birthday party or story to tell. What was the first birthday that you remember? Maybe a gift made it special or unforgettable even if maybe you want to forget it. You don't have to blog about the embarrassing things. Just think of all the kinds of things that you can put in a birthday entry.

Presents - we mentioned. Cake - size, shape. flavor, kind, design, candles, etc. A whole entry could just be about the cake. Then there's decorations, party favors, balloons, streamers, signs (there's some good signs someone made we can all remember *Smirk*). Oh wait - birthday cards. Now there's something that could fill a book with the funny, the clever, the rude, the politically incorrect, the romantic, the generous (love those money cards!), the musical, the—whatever. Games, well if you aren't too old for that *ROLLEYES*.

People. Who's there or not there is always a topic, but more importantly it's the interactions and relationships that happen. Even if you have to spend your birthday alone, you're bound to have thought about others and probably talked or video called some. They gave you cheer and best wishes, and they each meant something different to you.

Wow! We seemed to be outlining a real story here setting the scene and developing characters. There's probably a plot buried in there to weave around the action and emotions. What could it possibly be? Aging? Nah. It's probably something existential like life or some such.

There is probably too much to write in a single birthday entry. It could take several entries or days, weeks, months, hopefully, not longer since you'd have another birthday to enter. However, it should keep that wonderful feeling going and going.

What have you ever written about a birthday, yours or anything's? WDC just celebrated it's 18th birthday. Time now to practice your birthday blogging so you're ready for WDC 19 next September 1.
