    I have an article I am working on that I would like to get published in a magazine or newspaper. I’ve never done that before, but this article is just really something I feel publish worthy. What should I do first…if you don’t mind me asking?

    • I sent you an email yesterday about your question. Please let me know if you didn’t receive it. Thank you!

        Would you mind resending that…sorry it has taken so long to get back with you…I’ve been working on my art of procrastination. No, really that was the time I signed up for a million free samples and coupons and now have over 1000 unread emails. I’ll look for yours through them, but if you don’t mind, please resend. Thanks! By the way, I went to high school in Kimball ne. Is that close to where you live?

    Glad to meet you Vicky. You stopped by my place to read my story and I always return the courtesy. I also checked out your website and was very happy to see your humor legacy. I’ll definitely keep up with you. Thanks so much for stopping by my place. Please drop by again. Cheers! ET

    I’m very happy to have you visit and follow my blog! Wow, after reading about all of your writing success, I am impressed! I’ve had just one article published, (with a re-publish as well), and that’s it so far. I have contributed to 3-4 websites from spiritual to sports topics.

    But I just keep looking for “who I am” in this highly competitive business of writing. Take care and continued success…Skip.

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Skip! Don’t give up. It took me five years of persistently submitting articles before I was finally published. I love your blog. Keep doing what you are doing and, most importantly, enjoy your journey. Stay in touch and best wishes for continued success!

        That means a lot, Vicky, thank you. I’m always looking at ways to improve and add to the “visiting” experience of my site, but I have a ways to go, without doubt!

        I’m glad to have you as a follower and friend. I’m sure we’ll be sharing things as we go along…

        Take care,
