Elwood Writers is in a slightly introspective mood. Maybe it’s the change of season, or the gloomy weather, or the world news. Whatever the cause, our self-reflection has led us to wonder what makes the group tick. In particular, what makes us tick online. We have maintained a group website, the one you’re reading now, for quite some time. But three of our four members also have their own individual websites, and have for a number of years. Their sites contain active and fascinating blogs, each with a rich history, and each vastly different from the others. You can access Barry’s here, Jennifer’s here, and Margaret’s here.
So we’re throwing out a few questions to Barry, Jennifer, and Margaret:
- What was your original intention when setting up your website? What are your reasons for maintaining a blog?
- What audience are you trying to reach?
- What do you hope to communicate through your website?
If we go alphabetically, then maybe Barry could start the ball rolling? It’s up to you how you approach this. You could choose just one question, or address them all if you want. There might be a bit of overlap between the questions, anyway. You could also say ‘no comment’ or ‘I’m too busy’, and we wouldn’t be offended. Though our curiosity would continue to nag.
We look forward to seeing the responses over the coming weeks. In the meantime, we’ll go back to gazing through the window, watching the rain, and wondering what it’s all about.

I’d love to answer your questions, EW. What an interesting post to chew over. Introspection suits you. It’s a long while since I set up my website, though, so I’ll have to cast my mind back, and clear my way through the mists. I can sense a bit of window-gazing of my own coming on. I’ll try to get back to you this time next week, all being well. In the meantime, if you do happen to come any closer to discovering what it’s all about, please let us know.

I’m still asking Alfie. ‘What’s it all about ….?’ I’ll work on mine too.
