My New Blog is Born



After a week and a half of work I'm pleased to announce I'm launching a second blog.  I got the idea to do this after a comment I received from Betz, who said she'd like to read more of my work.  I decided it was time to present myself a bit differently, as an alternative for readers.

Thus is born The Glass Wall.  It's a condensed version of this site, and expresses who I am through poetry, short stories and essays.  I've pulled selected posts from the past.  My day-to-day musings will remain here on Life in Quotations while my more creative-writing posts will appear on both blogs, so I won't be posting there quite as often.

I decided on the name when I thought of people I've known who put up walls around themselves.  I've always tried to stay approachable to others and let them in, this is another way to show those around me who I am.  You can access this second blog through my profile (under "My Blogs"), or link here.

Please drop by to visit!

Barry ♥

Thank you Betz for being so amazingly encouraging.  If you haven't checked out her site I encourage you to visit her (here), she's one of the most uplifting people I've met.

  2. WOW! What a great idea. It is as if you have two sides as a writer. You know what? I also feel like I have many sides as a writer. I have an academic side, as well as a creative, romantic, and practical side.

    I am glad you are exploring all your sides as a writer (sorry for the repetition). Life and writing is simply boring when whatever we do is monotonous.

    I look forward to visiting the new blog.

    Con aprecio,
    Aquiles
