Welcome Back to the Blogosphere, Joanna Young!

When Karen Swim sent me a message asking if I would help welcome back Joanna Young today, I didn’t hestitate to say yes.  Karen, along with Robert Hruzek, Brad Shorr and Daniel Smith conspired together to create a big welcome back for Joanna.

When I was at the SOBCon’08 earlier this year, Joanna came bounding over and said a big hello.  She sat down and spent some time chatting with me.  It was the first time I had ever met anyone from Scotland, and it was a pleasure to get to know her more at SOBCon’08.  The photo at the left is the two of us with Phil Gerbyshak, the guy who urges us to Make it Great!

Joanna is a writing coach and she gives out writing tips over at Confident Writing.  She’s an amazing writer.  I love popping over to her blog and learning from her.  Her posts make me think. 

Joanna disappeared from the blogosphere for two weeks while in the middle of moving to greener pastures on the west coast of Scotland. 

Joanna, hon, we’ve missed you.  But time to get back to work in making the rest of us confident writers!   

So welcome back, Joanna!

  1. Hey guys, I didn’t get a chance to put up a welcome post at my blog but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking of you Joanna!

    Welcome back indeed! We all missed you on Twitter. Love to see your face over there soon. :0

    Like the photo over at Liz Strauzz’s blog, this one also brings back wonderful memories of SOBCon08. I had a great time.

    Congrats Joanna on your new digs. One day I’ll have to visit when on an International speaking gig.

  2. Karen, it was such a delight to meet you at SobCon! Thanks for sharing the photo and reminding me of happy memories. This crazy escapade of Karen, Brad and Robert’s has reminded me of how wonderful bloggers are. I’d better start saving for next spring for more chances to meet up!

  4. Karen,

    It’s truly wonderful to see just how many bloggers have been touched by Joanna’s magic! What a privilege to be part of such a fabulous group — even if not all of us have managed to meet her — or each other — in person yet!


  5. Karen, I swear to you I am getting old! I must have had this comment conversation with you in my head. I was so certain I had been here and left a comment on Monday! Oh man…aging! I am so thankful you and Joanna met at SOBcon, because it led to our meeting. I adore both of you and am happy to be part of this wonderful community that continues to grow.
