New Here

bookcases filled with books

Welcome to Always Write

I’m your hostess and chief editor and publisher of this blog, Marsha Ingrao.

Two bloggers in Avila Beach
Carol, the Eternal Traveler, and me: two bloggers together in Avila Beach, one from Australia, one from California.

All bloggers are publishers. We monitor and approve what goes out to our public. A vanity blogger is nothing more than someone who publishes a blog with no commercial agenda. Most bloggers are somewhere in between a vanity and commercial blogger because they have something to promote.

Blogging- A Giant Experiment

Isn’t it great to publish a living blog? Writing, editing and publishing my blog compliments my philosophy of being a life-long learner.

My life is like an Australian Street sign. Traveling and blogging reflects my life, as blogger Sally Cronin states, ” A Smorgasbord of LIfe.”

  2. Marsha, was it you who recommended the book The Worst Hard Time? I’ve found it excellent, though disturbing. If it was you, have you seen this movie, which was mentioned in the book: The Plow That Broke the Plains

    Cheers! Yvonne

    1. It was me, and it was disturbing, and excellent. I haven’t seen the movie. Thanks for recommending it. We do so much plowing here that we have our own dustbowl problems right here in Central California.

      Take care Yvonne, and have a Merry Christmas. Lots of love, Marsha xox


    1. Thanks, Kevin. It’s so much easier than self-hosted, and it’s friendlier. I was never happy with my other blog, so I finally gave up fighting with it. I’m glad you like it. I thought I had lost you. I tried to look you up and got a no longer available sign. So did you do the same thing? I’m just excited to see you on line again. 🙂 Write soon. If you every want me to do a guest post, I owe you several. 🙂
