Before I begin my post. I need to share. :-) Woke-up to a note from my publisher. "Escape to Big Fork Lake" was on Amazon's best sellers list for Christian Suspense. Hey, I know those list are fleeting, but it's nice for an hour.
There’s a funny commercial, or is it dumb… anyway it grabs people’s attention. The silly blond says, “they can’t put anything that’s not true on the Internet."
I wonder. Do people really believe that? Years ago maybe, when the information highway first took flight some lived with that thought.
I remember my first jolt with the wide world of web. Yes, the beginning-meaning it wasn’t around when I was a youngster so there have you, I told my age, anyway, on with my point.
The start of my travels with the Internet, I assumed it to be a wonderland,
containing unlimited information. Back then I wondered how all that knowledge
gathered together for people to retrieve.
Oh the times past. Since then, I’ve had a rude awaken.
I am not only an author, but contribute non-fiction to a weekly Christian site and in my spare time (whenever that happens) I write web content. It amazes my husband, I can write a 500 word article about changing brakes on a car or building a gazebo, but have never done any of these,(nor do I intend to.)
I say “research” that’s the name for the game. We have replaced the encyclopedias with the Internet. Let’s just hope that everyone who contributes strives to be as accurate as they can with facts, because we now depend on computers to answer all kinds of question, especially if you’re a writer.
