Writing On Line

This is a shameless promotion for eGenerations, the over-50 web site for which I write a twice-monthly column. This is still a fairly new and struggling site still being developed, and the founder is eager to get suggestions for improvements. Why not join? It's free, it won't bombard you with spam, and it can offer a place to argue with other members in the forums, to express your ideas, and to publish everything from your memoirs to your recipes on line.

While you're there, read my column on writing, rate it, and "digg" it. It's nice to be appreciated.

Go to You can find my column on the "Connect" page, upper right.

Hi Marlys, Thanks for the plug about egenerations. I have been avoiding such communities mainly because I pour my heart into the essays I write on my own blog, and I run out of time. Do you think it would be okay to simply repeat my blog over at egenerations? My material might interest folks there. Alternatively, I could use my blog for "memoirs at any age" and develop a second blog for "saging."

I don't think you should reproduce your whole blog there, but it might be a good idea to join and submit an occasional journal or memoir entry(with mention of its origin on your own blog), as I sometimes do.

eGenerations doesn't need another regular columnist on writing memoirs (that's my official, unpaid job) but some other networking site might.

I don't know whether or not you need two blogs. I find it hard to keep up with both of mine.

Frankly, there are a lot of blogs promoting memoir writing these days, and most of them are good. I hope someone is paying attention to us and actually writing!
