PA Live! Blog of the Week: Gale Martin, Author and Speaker

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Watch this episode on the PA Live! site: http://www.pahomepage.com/story/blog-of-the-week-gale-martin-august-20th-2013/d/story/I5mx46C8Hk-Rm389jgM_Qg

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Gale Martin: Author and Speaker  (http://galemartin.me/blog/)..

Gale Martin, as the title of her blog suggests, is an author and speaker. She lives in Lancaster but got her M.A. in Creative Writing from Wilkes University. The Wilkes program has produced many excellent writers whose blogs we have featured previously - including Amye Archer, whose blogroll was where we found this blog.

But Gale Martin: Author and Speaker is not a writing blog. It is a "Life" blog, and an excellent example of that sort of blog. Since October 2010 Gale Martin has used it to share with her readers selected excerpts from her life, her travels, her adventures - and even sometimes her writings! As a skilled and talented writer, her blog posts are excellent reads, whether they're about sweaters, sneakers, mice, hot dogs, zucchini, or Tom Jones. Gale Martin: Author and Speaker is an excellent blog for any reader, and for aspiring writers and bloggers it can certainly be a source of inspiration - and an example of a way that writing for general audiences can be entertaining and informative. Be sure to check it out!
