Ruth Cox Who Am I on Persona Paper

It is a brand new year and here I am publishing for the first time on a new writing platform, thanks to an invitation by BarbRad on Tsu. I expect this to be a prosperous new year for all writers here at Persona Paper.

I have been writing all over the world wide web since 1998 and I am known not just as Ruth Cox but also as Ruthi aka abitosunshine.

Although I am a poet at heart, I find myself writing more prose than poetry these days. Quite alright, as I enjoy writing what's on my mind, no matter the form.

These days, I pen a lot of words about the newest addition to my family -- my shelter dog Valentino. Perhaps I'll officially introduce him to you in an article here, too. Actually, you can count on it!

I am an eclectic writer (and reader) so I will be sharing my views and reviews across myriad topics, such as: poetry, books, dogs, family and friends, and all sorts of everyday things. My life and my loves are pretty much an open book so you never know what you might find yourself reading from me next!

I am looking forward to engaging with the Persona Paper community, making new friends as well as connecting with old friends. I am big on building relationships, so expect to see me commenting rather than just viewing.

Wishing you all a happy new year, filled with nuttin' but sunshine, from the beach in Carrabelle, Florida!

I recently started both Persona Paper and Tsu, looking to connect with vibrant communities of authors. I'm excited to meet Valentino!

Welcome Ruth. Your name sounds familiar, but I can't place where I know you from. I look forward to reading your posts. I've only been here a couple of weeks and haven't been very active so far, but I too, and looking forward to a good year.

Hello and welcome, Ruth. Pull up a keyboard and make yourself at home. This is a great place to meet like-minded individuals and read lots of posts from others around the world. HaPPy New Year to you!!

Hi BNelson , Great to connect with you in yet another place!

BeadDoodler does sound familiar so we must cross writing paths somewhere. We'll have a good year if we make it so!

Yes, Valentino definitely deserves his own article. emoticon :smile:
At some point, I think that Queen Kitty (better known these days as "Cord Chewer") will be seizing control of the keyboard and giving the community here her thoughts on things.

RuthCox wrote on January 3, 2015, 9:12 PM

no will get an article of his own soon. And it will be fun to read what Cord Chewer has to say!

It's very nice to meet you. I am new here on Persona Papers, too. I am relatively new to on-line writing sites, though I have published several YA novels. On-line writing seems a logical progression to or from digital publishing. Looking forward to many interactions and sharing.

At the moment, I think that she just wants to grumble about us disturbing her nap... oh, and that she didn't get enough yogurt yesterday. emoticon :grin:

I am glad to welcome you here Ruth and I would be pleased to read about Valentino.

Madcanman Thank you for the warm welcome and a haPPy new year to you, too. I do enjoy meeting people from all over the world and reading what is of interest to them.

Hi Ruth! I just joined today and am waiting on my confirmation to get started. Good to see you.

Welcome aboard, Ruth! It was nice to meet you on two sites simultaneously emoticon :smile:

Love seeing you here, too, LadyDuck and I did manage to publish Valentino's official introduction..:-)

It's really nice to meet.

This is Guiness the Cat. Debbi and I would like to welcome you to and Valentino to Persona Paper. We're glad you're both here!

Hi Ruth. I stalked you over to this site and decided to give it a try. Since you recommended it, I am sure it will be well worth the journey. Maybe I will be able to do better over here than on previous sites. Regardless, it will be good to keep up with some of the people I you. Happy New Year!

Welcome, it is so nice to see that you aren't just a lurker, and that you like to actively get involved here. I am the same, commenting and posting is the best way

RuthCox wrote on January 8, 2015, 5:36 PM

It is always good to see you, Carol. We've been reading each other for years now!

G'day Ruthi , It's always a pleasure to meet a new friend especially when they have a companion like Valentino, I can't wait to hear about him and how he acquired his name ? :)
