Blogging...About Blogging

Sigh. Poor neglected little blog sitting here all by its lonesome, wishing for some attention from me.

Well. Looks like I have some time for you baby.  My corporate gig has ended and I have a summer of writing and publishing ahead of me (also taking on some paid editing gigs to help with the transition -- email me if you have need and want a price quote).

I love shoplifting, but have gotten away from posting my  lifts here -- Facebook is just too easy to use right from a smart phone, I guess, and Blogger is not. 

I love talking and writing about writing and the writing life, but I have let myself get so busy that I have forgotten what it's like to reflect and analyze and muse.

In any case, blogging can be a great part of the overall marketing platform for writers and has come up so often in the last few weeks that, FINE, OKAY, I'll get back to it.

In light of that, here's an article about blogging for authors -- let me know if you have any thoughts on this topic.

As for me, I'll be trying to figure out what the hell I will post about later this week......


  1. You sound like me! I sit and wonder for a while if I'll be able to come up with a blog for the week. Then I come up with something, manage to type the words out for the blog and am happy with myself. Then I have to wonder what I'll write about for next week!

  2. I've been struggling with the blog in so much as I've been writing and writing and haven't liked a word of it. It's not what I wanted to S.A.Y.
    But tonight I posted in a fit of emotion.
    Good idea/Bad idea?
    I guess we'll see...

  3. My problem with the blog is I exhaust ideas. So I've created a yearlong calendar with all the ideas for all 102 blogs I'm to write all year. Sounds easy, right? Ha! Not when I go to the calendar and think "For crying out loud that's as dumb as a sheep in a tree." Then I have to start over. *sigh*

  4. I'm glad you're back--can't wait to see some new shoplifts. They are invariably hilarious, unbelievable and/or inspiring. Bring 'em on!
