Welcome to Always Write
I’m Marsha Ingrao, your hostess and chief editor and publisher of this blog. If you want to know more about me, and you don’t mind TMI and a few yawns, check out my About Page.
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 lifelong learner.

- 2023 WOTY (Word of the Year) is COMPELLING. I want to write compelling stories and take compelling pictures and lead a compelling life.
- 2022 WOTY (Word of the Year) is CURATE. I want to make Always Write an organized place of learning and beauty for all of us and reflect the result of curation in my life.
All bloggers are publishers. We determine the purpose of our blogs. We monitor and approve what goes out to our public. Blogging carries a great responsibility because a website is a reflection of its owner.
Challenge I Host
I maintain Always Write to have fun blogging with friends. Until the end of 2022, I hosted Story Chat and Photographing Public Art (PPAC). Natalie the Explorer has taken over PPAC, but Story Chat is open for someone who would love to host it.
Wednesday Quotes is a weekly challenge that comes out every Wednesday. (duh!) It’s a place for writers and photographers to tell their stories using a quote based on the week’s theme. For more information click on the link to my page.
“In quoting others, we cite ourselves.”Julio Cortazar
“A very wise quote is a spectacular waterfall! When you see it, you feel its power!”Mehmet Murat Ildan
Blog Challenges Interview Series
As of January 2023, there are 22 interviews of hosts and participants in the Challenges in the Challenge Host Interview Series. Blog challenges are the way many bloggers strut their stuff and meet other people. Join me for an interview or a guest post.
