I haven’t been blogging much thepast month or so, and the main reason boils down to the title of this post. What is the purpose of this blog?
When it comes right down to it, I want this blog to be a way for me to interact with my readers (admittedly that’s only a handful of people right now, but I hope that will slowly change in the future ). To have a place to be me, and hopefully show that there is a person “behind the book”. But for a while, I had lost sight of this.
Instead, I had begun to think that this was a blog about writing. Why? Well, I like to write. I like to read about writing. I see a lot of blogs about writing. So that means that since I have a blog, I should write about writing. That makes sense, right?
The only problem with that thought is that I don’t have a lot to say about writing! I’m not an expert at writing in any way, shape or form (hell, half the time I can’t remember the difference between a noun and a verb ), so for me to post about writing seems a little hypocritical.
And because I had begun thinking that this was a blog about writing I had stopped posting, since I was always worrying about whether I had anything useful to say.
While I can’t promise that I’ll have anything useful to say on other topics, I do want to update this blog more regularly. So, starting today I will be. From time to time I will talk about the process of writing (it’s something I love to do after all), but I’ll also be adding more of a personal slant to the site and talking about other things. Plus I’ll return to posting the occasional review, since I like being able to point readers to books I enjoyed. After all, I’m a reader too.
So, to summarize my rambling: Not posting bad. Will post more often.
(Geeze, to think I could have just posted 7 words instead of this entire post )
