As an author I know the importance of social media. It’s a constant battle and at times I fall short. Blame it on the fact that life gets in the way.
One wouldn’t think it would be as time consuming as it is to log-on and remind everyone you're still alive. Nevertheless, several hours can be spent at the keyboard. Added to the responsibilities of having a writer’s presence, comes blogging.
My biggest questions have always been… do authors blog for readers, aspiring writers or other authors?
I settled to blog about issues concerning inspiring writers after the first of the year. Now, I’m second guessing myself. Wouldn’t my efforts be better spent sharing things with everyone who just enjoys a good read?
I really don’t enjoy blogging if I need to research subjects for inspiration. Maybe, I’ll go to webbing it for fun instead of adding more work to my plate.
For a writer it’s hard enough to find the time to work on the newest character that is screaming things in your head while you juggling family, church and other stuff that happens.
I read an interesting article on agent Rachelle Gardner’s blog about author’s blogging. It really got me thinking.
So with all that said what’re your thoughts on blogging? What audience should an author blog for?
