I am a single female in her late thirties, living in Austin, Texas. This used to say that I write for your amusement. The truth is that I do write for my own amusement. You can read, too, but I warn you that I am easily amused.

I write most frequently about women’s issues, relationships, faith and spirituality, and human interest stories that appeal to me. Sometimes I venture into more serious fare with blog posts about politics or human rights issues.

    Do you really write for my amusement? Are you sure? I think maybe you write for your own amusement. It’s okay if you do. I’m still amused either way. But I’m not sure I want the responsibility your giving me if indeed it is me for whom you write. And if you do write for my amusement, does that make you my muse? Just a few thoughts I thought I’d share for your amusement. Or possibly for my own. I’m not sure.

    Writing for your own amusement is (in my opinion) the best way to blog! And being someone myself who is easily amused (I laugh at my own jokes more than my husband does), I think it’s a great quality. =)

    Love this article. How encouraging. I’m divorced and have been for many years. Am still looking to get married “someday”, but right now am enjoying my singleness and independence. We “older” women have a lot of great qualities and experience that those cute young things lack. I agree with you. Get out there ladies and strut your stuff. These guys won’t know what him ’em!

    Loved reading your post today about women getting married after 40. And I have to admit, I write my blog for my amusement too. Thankfully 1 or 2 others find it amusing as well!

    Very fun, thanks!

    Do you write because deep down you feel you want to share, do you write because you want to be heard, do you write simply because you like to write?

    Who, What, When, Where and Why.

    That is the question.

    I write for my own amusement that’s for sure. I totally crack myself up if the truth be told – just sayin’
