Last blog I talked about my quest for balance in my writing and life, which is a work in progress. At the same time I am trying to continue to grow and expand as an author and as a person. Part of that includes here on my blog. I want to put out better and more informative and/or entertaining content here. I want to do the same across my social media. I want to still do my idea of a vlog or something on a YouTube channel. I want to learn to market my books better, which in this day and age means marketing myself better.
Blogging, just like everything else is a learning process and I want to become better at it. That is where you come in. What would you like to see more of on this blog? What do you want to read? More book reviews? Would you like vlog style book reviews perhaps? More about the writing process? More about trying to balance life and writing? What is it that you want me to blog about? What will keep you coming back? Please leave your feedback in the comments below! Thank you in advance.
So I recently came across a question in a fantasy readers/authors group on Facebook and I thought that I would ask all of you, my lovely readers. The question is whether or not blogging is necessary for authors? Meaning, should authors even take time out of their other writing work to blog? Since I am posting this question on my blog, I bet you know what my answer is. However I was really shocked that almost every one on that particular post seemed to think blogging was a waste of time. Most people there said they don't read blogs, that they believe that authors should just be writing their next book, that blogs were no longer relevant. I was couldn't believe that no one thought blogging was relevant.
Now I blog three times a week, about my work, about art, about my writing of course, and any other thing that pops in my mind. I also like to share other authors and artists. And I have hundreds of readers each week, thousands each month. So obviously people are still reading blogs. You are reading blogs my friends. So I thought that I would ask you some questions.
Why do you read blogs? How many do you read on average? What draws you to certain blogs? Do you find new authors through blogs? Do you buy books you read about on blogs? Where else to you find authors? On Facebook and Twitter? Podcasts? This inquiring author really wants to hear from you!
Author, artist, jewelry maker and all around creative person. I write in many genres and have a lot of fun doing so. Please take a look around and enjoy!
