Sometimes writing can feel like a lonely and isolating chore … while at other times you can be "caught in the flow", fingers skating across the keyboard, not noticing the hours slipping by.
One of the advantages of writing a blog is that you can solicit feedback … if you are writing a book or a work of some kind, you can put it on the Internet very quickly, and get some feedback. Sure it might start with only one or two readers (like your mother and father), but hey, that’s where Picasso started too! The other main advantage to blogging for writers is that you have the chance to build a community or readers who may ACTUALLY buy your book — or even better — they may MARKET it for you.
And if it so happens, that the new year is upon us, then your readers/audience/community/parents can VOTE for your blog in a number of categories. This year’s bloggies close in a few days, so get over there quicksmart!
What are you waiting for? Stop reading and get VOTING.
