I blog, you blog, we all blog – Why?Posted: July 21, 2009 | |
My friend and fellow author Pat made me start blogging. Okay, she didn’t really MAKE me. It was a suggestion. A forceful suggestion.
That really isn’t true either. As authors, we encourage each other to find ways to promote ourselves and our books. Pat suggested we blog. So, we did.
I wrote many blogs all about writing and I always hated those blogs. I don’t think I’m qualified to tell others how to write or how to get published. Pat is much better at them than I am.
I think my posts ended up having a sarcastic twist to them, even when I didn’t mean to. And now, my blog has grown to take on a life of it’s own. I’m horrible about posting with any consistancy. I don’t always have something to say and I don’t always have time. Often, I’m content leaving comments on other blogs.
Recently, a couple of my favorite bloggers left, but one came back. 🙂
Another has abandoned one blog to spend more time on another one but at least he didn’t abandon his readers.
So I have a question.
Why did you start blogging? What do you get out of it?
I did it because Pat made me. I keep doing it because I actually kind of like it.
