I've listed everyone's contributions for the Wall of Wisdom page on the FindAWritingGroup.com website, they're in alpabetical by first name order.  The format will change when I revamp the site (see below), but I didn't want to delay posting them any longer.

If you contributed, please check your quote and link, then let me know if I need to make any changes. 

If you haven't yet given me a quote for the wall, but you'd like to take part, please leave me a comment with your advice; your writing name; your state/country; and the link to either your blog or your website.

Also if you want to help the Find A Writing Group network by setting up (or converting an existing) Yahoo group for your state/country, please follow the instructions on the website.

Write Around the World (the official FAWG blog) & FAWG website revamp in progress
I've posted my 'Picks of the week' from last Friday on Write Around the World.  I won't be putting any guest posts up in the near future because I'm in the process of changing the site from the current GoDaddy.com template (which came free with the domain name) with a custom made one, which I'm putting together myself.

The plus side of doing this is that there won't be any advertisements on the site (woohoo!).  In addition, I'll be able to have as many pages as I like; and can tailor individual pages (like the WALL OF WISDOM) to look how I want them to.  The down side is that I'll have to replace the blog, and will lose anything posted on the current version (hence my reason for not having any guest posts).

In order to do all this, I have to learn to use Adobe's Dreamweaver.  I expect it to take a while, especially as I need to fit this in around other priorities, not least of which is writing, so please bear with me.  Aside from the 'No guest posts for a while' thing, this is a purely cosmetic change, which won't effect the network itself.
 
FAWG Community on LJ?
I'm considering setting up a FAWG community, here on LJ.  Aside from the obvious find a writing group theme, I think it would give people a place to connect with other writers to share information about writing contests, online critique groups etc.

If you like the idea of a FAWG community here on LJ, please let me know.  Also, I'd be most interested to hear your thoughts on what you think such a community should offer to folks.

I rather like the idea of a FAWG community on LJ but that's because I'm lazy. Or busy, whichever way you like to see it. I already know how LJ communities work and what I can do there. I still haven't figured out Yahoo Groups.

For me, the biggest plus LJ has is the way the comment threads work here. Every time someone responds directly to something someone said, the response appears directly below the original remark. It makes it so much easier to read.

That's true. I never thought about it like that.

DITTO!!! I am much more likely to keep up on it and participate if it's here on LJ. I've only so much time in a day that I'm willing to dedicate to such things. If it's here, I WILL.

If I had any vaunted wisdom, you would be the first to hear it :-)

Dreamweaver is pretty user friendly. It has been several years since I used it but it wasn't to bad. I'm no web designer though. Good luck.

I think it would be cool to have one here on LJ as well. I see these groups as a way to network, connect writers from all over as well as locally, post helpful links and workshops and really just to get information out there.

Re: Dreamweaver

I've been told it's fairly idiot-proof. The jury's still out on whether it's English idiot-proof ;)

Yeah, I know what you mean. Although it's always worth the effort, I have to push myself to stray outside the boundaries of LJ :)
