To Blog or Not to Blog

As a writer I feel it’s a necessity to have a blog. Our business is about words, and what better way to practice your calling than with your very own blog!

           

With this unique tool of cyberspace you can be as creative as you want. You can write in poetry or prose. You can create your own format. You could include stories for your audience of choice. You can write short short stories or include a chapter of your masterpiece every week. You can give writing tips or conduct surveys. There are no limits to how innovative you can be.

           

Blogs are a great marketing tool, too. I’m currently thinking of ways to utilize mine more effectively as my upcoming book gets closer to publication. Some of my friends have done blog tours and even blog interviews to get the word out about their latest opus.

           

What’s keeping you from creating your own blog? Give it a try. It’s easy and it’s fun!
