Someone said they were impressed that I was able to blog everyday. To which I replied, blogging everyday isn't hard-I'm a talker- it's trying to ensure I say something interesting that's tough!
The thing about blogging is it can be used for various purposes-1) to inform and entertain-something I try to use my Sunday blog. For example this month's Sunday Blogs are devoted to the Query letter- ( www.nancyjparra.blogspot.com) 2) blogs can be a way to keep in touch with family, friends and readers. I use my website blog this way. I get notes asking me when my next book is out. What takes so long between books, etc. So, I use this blog as my daily note-to let you know what I'm working on. How life gets in the way of work. What the view is from my window, etc. I use it as a glimpse into the working writer's life. 3) blogs are often used as advertisement-buy my book-release date now!- join my network- etc. I'm not so much into the advertising side of blogging. But I hear it works for some people.
By the by- I received another query letter rejection with a form letter from an agent. This time they said they were too busy with current clients... So, if you're keeping track- All of the snail mail queries have been replied to while the e-mail queries are running two thirds reply- one third ignore. Interesting-no?
Happy Sunday everyone!
