Laying It On The Line ‘Bout You

I had planned to “Lay It On The Line ‘Bout Love” today, because y’all know I can do that – I’ve been on that journey in several different lives, shapes, and forms. I admit I can’t tell you the top ten things you need to do to succeed in love like some folks can, but I certainly can rattle off a list of a few things you shouldn’t do if you’re looking for a successful love adventure.

Yes, love was going to be the topic until I sent out an e-mail and Facebook notice yesterday, explaining my intentions to enter the blogosphere.

And then you started replying and commenting, and Lord have mercy, I have to hand it to youyou are the new press indeed…just like the blogging experts say you are: “Freedom of the press belongs to those who own one, and now, because we have the Web, anyone can own one. The press is us.”

Doesn’t that make you proud? It should and it should also make you feel inspired, because communication is what makes us better human beings. The more we talk and listen, the more we understand, and the more we understand, the smarter we get…and that is what this blogging thing is all about…throwing it out there and getting it back.

So, please, talk to me. Share what you’re reading and hearing; express what you think. Tell me the stories you want to hear. Enlighten us with history you know and insight you have.

But before I leave you on this Valentine’s Day, I want to share this little clip with you. John Mayer lays it on the line ’bout that love thing…it’s a perfect description of what the bug can do to you.

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I teach...media writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.
