In a flurry of embarrassment, I erased my post to Facebook and the Querytracker forum about my new blog. Why? Because of this:
Online Platform Do's and Dont's
What's the purpose of a blog? I have to admit I get nervous at the very term "social networking." And for a newbie writer (if you don't include my fourth-grade foray into writing) supposedly it's good to get yourself out there. So I put myself out there, and quickly reeled myself in. Fast. It was a twelve hour turn around from visions of Super-Fabulous-Blogger back to reality.
Having a great blog with a billion hits a day takes upkeep and maintenance. Like feeding a little monster, I've heard it called.
So after a small freak-out, I decided to change my blogging goals. Like, have NO blog. And then I thought, I should write about this on my blog. Ugh, what's the matter with me? So in the end, here I am. And my blog will be a place where I can write about writing, and help any others along who come to this neck of the woods.
