What Do YOU Think?

I’m interested in getting your thoughts about stuff I see and hear, quotes I read, stuff that passes as knowledge – and starting an authorey conversation.

I love this for its simplicity. Have fun on your blog or Facebook or Twitter, or don’t do it – but your fans will eventually find you. So do it how you want.

I wish more of you had the confidence to follow your gut, even when you are clueless. I’ve made more mistakes than you probably ever will, and I’m still here. Turns out, nobody reaches through the internet and punches you in the nose when you make a mistake. You’ll be okay.

What are YOUR thoughts on this idea?

  1. There are so many supposed ‘rules’ and ‘dos and don’ts’ when it comes to blogging that I really think that each blog should be as individual as its creator. Apart from being nice, engaging with readers and being interesting, there are no hard and fast rules for blogging success. Cheeky post titles certainly help, in my experience.

      1. I think so. Blogs should be a reflection of the person writing them, so doing what everyone else says you should do is a sure path to misery and failure! Well – a less successful blog, anyway 😉

  2. Lucy has a very good point. I use my blog to just bang on whatever’s on my mind, which is why it ranges from books to politics to films. The blog, for me, is more an exercise to keep me writing on the days when I can’t work on any fiction, so it helps to keep those creative juices flowing, even if it just a rant.

      1. That’s EXACTLY why I started blogging. Because I desperately needed therapy. Probably still do. And probably why I don’t have much of an audience….My posts are too long, too rambly, and all about ME ME ME (which SHOULD be fascinating, but for some reason, isn’t to others. Huh.)

        But it’s good for me and I’ve met some top-quality peeps through this secret village. So there’s that.

      1. Nah! You’re good! Never noticed! Doubt I’d ‘See’ if we were face to face. 🙂 Sorry! Couldn’t resist!

        Have a great rest of your day!

  3. I love it. I really didn’t know all that “Blogging” would entail i.e. following, reading, liking, and commenting. It is very social and that surprised me. I started my blog as a creative outlet and a desire to maybe help. As far as responses from others, those are a reflection of whatever is going on with them at the time. Has not much to do with me other than what my words evoke.

  4. Your blog, web-log, is a logical place to experiment or try different things. Why shouldn’t it be a place for mistakes, along with successes and accidental wonders? It’s a peek behind-the-scenes, and you’re not charging money for it, so use your blog to practice creativity. It’s yours.

  5. I have to agree with the sentiment of it – I’ve tried to do the “blogging” thing by the rules… blog about things relevant to my “author persona” – but I found that I’m a bit too random. Am I too random for readers to find me? Maybe. But, it is what it is, and it’s a lot more fun being random. 🙂
