Despite the fact that you probably won’t read this since I’m posting WAY after-the-fact, thank you for sharing this very usable bit of information. The last three “conferences” I’ve attended have placed major impact on leaving our “virtual footprint” in view, telling us that without a website/blog, we do not exist. I was told to look at the websites of my favorite writers and recreate a format. There is one major difference between those writers and me: I DON’T HAVE ANY PUBLISHED BOOKS! (Do manuscripts fully printed and in 3-ring binders count?) To me, setting up a blog to look similar to theirs is ludicrous.
I’m going to do this blog thing if it kills me, since I don’t want to die thinking I don’t exist. Not only did I get some great info from your article, but I also found another way to pass the time and not work on starting my blog. I LOVE reading about writing. I love the way I nod my head and agree with almost everything you say. It’s like having a conversation with your best friend. I think I’ll look for more things you wrote. This could go on all night. Maybe I’ll start the blog TOMORROW….
Oh well, thanks for posting.
