It’s good to know that I am not the only one who is getting very close to become an ex blogger. I started with much appetite a few years ago and before I knew I was working on 4 blogs at the same time.
I write every day, from 140 characters to a few hundred, and I love it, I learn so much from it…
It’s very hard to reach this point of no return, but I would like to pass the pen to others. And luckily there are many, many great writers, much better writers than me.
I think it’s time for me to reflect, to read, not write, to take in, not push out. I still have one blog left after Social Media Muse blog flips the last page (except for my Social Media Muse facebook page, where I share interesting Social Media Marketing articles almost every day!)
I’ll continue my personal blog 365Muses, a more eclectic and spiritual space, no business lingo there, although I might write a few words now and then about Social Media because it’s an amazing world!

No worries, I am not writing about a romantic story, although it would be an interesting exercise. Today as I was researching the word ghostwriter I found out that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a Primo Uomo himself, was paid to ghostwrite music for wealthy patrons.
The reason I looked it up is because of a rather terse reaction I received on an inquiry about writing opportunities. I tried to understand and thought the word ghostwriter had developed a negative connotation, but non of the online information pointed that direction, in fact it is a rather common trade during this information and content famine. That left me with the idea that I might have inadvertently offended an authority.
Everybody is a writer during this Social Media era, even my 70 year old mom is posting on facebook every day and I can’t wait for her to start Tweeting! We used to have a dairy, with a lock on it. Today we share our personal ins and outs with facebook friends and the rest of the world. We text, we Tweet, we blog, we’re all looking for words, 24-7. See, I didn’t really need a ghost, I just needed a business writer.
