How Bonnie Shields, Famous Book Illustrator, Learns to Blog

"I don't know anything about blogging," Artist, writer and illustrator, Bonnie Shields replied when offered an opportunity to write a guest blog. The famous book illustrator was thus ready to forego a wonderful opportunity.

However, Bonnie wrote her first blog within minutes after receiving the following explanation from the editor who extended the offer. The editor said,
"Not long ago I felt just like you -- and then I discovered that "blog" means "write" ... what's published electronically on the Internet. Simple! Just write a little synopsis about yourself when you reply to this email, and I'll publish it 'electronically' (or digitally... which means the same thing) -- on the Internet. That's all there is to writing a guest blog. It's simply writing."
Enjoy the blog Bonnie  wrote. And then send your blog to be published on LOCAL VOICES in this newspaper.
