Blogs – For You, For Me – What shall it be? by Debra H. Goldstein
Do blogs make a difference? Do people still read them? I personally think so, but I’m not sure. The reality is we are all inundated with blog messages. How do you pick and choose which ones to follow or read?
During the past few months, my writing efforts have been devoted to blogs. I wrote forty-four leading up to the recent launch of One Taste Too Many, the first book in my new cozy series. Some were straight blogs about writing, some were responsive interviews where I explained my thought processes or motivation related to writing One Taste Too Many, and some were from the viewpoint of either my protagonist, Sarah Blair, or from RahRah, her pet cat.
It was interesting to see how my mood impacted what I wrote and how I employed different styles if the piece was intended to be serious or to have a funny or whimsical nature. Sometimes, I discovered writing in the third party, as RahRah, was completely freeing. He had no filter!
I enjoy It’s Not Always a Mystery because it lets me share personal thoughts, as well as writing related topics, and gives me an opportunity to introduce authors you might not otherwise be familiar with. Most importantly, it permits me to have a forum to say thank you to you for your support and friendship. I love what blogs let me do, but what do you want from them?
