I am a brand new self-published picture book author who is doing it all on her own (with amazing support from family and friends). It seems that all the “how to” articles, books and blogs about writing and publishing encourage authors to blog. It’s a way for readers to get to know the author and for the author to get to know her audience. Aside from Twitter and Facebook, blogging seems to be the thing to do. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people can’t be wrong. Can they?
So, here I am. A newbie to writing, publishing, tweeting, facebooking (is that a word?) and now blogging. If it all turns out to be a minor disaster I’ll be happy. Anything better than a minor disaster will be gravy! And that gravy will be beyond delicious because it will have pieces of bacon in it. Did I mention that I love bacon? I’ll tell you more about that later.
I will do my best to present interesting and funny subjects that will have you coming back for more and telling your friends about it (that’s your cue to tell your friends about it). I will blog about my experience as a first-time writer and publisher, about books I enjoy and recommend for children and adults, about literacy, about being a mom, wife, sister, aunt, friend, daughter and about subjects that you suggest. I look forward to meeting you here. Please let me know if you have something you want to chat about.
Oh, yes, and buy my book here, please!
Until next time… stay cool!
Interesting fact via Duolit: There are 120,000 blogs created and over 1.4 million blog posts published every day (1,400,001 now). Thank you for stopping by mine. I really appreciate it!
