Blogging

A is for A

A start. A beginning. A is one. It is the first one and the one which must be completed before there are others. We have to have A before we can have others.

As a writer, I have to start with A single something. A letter. A word. A sentence. A paragraph. A chapter. A finished manuscript. A submission.

Today I am starting a new set of blogs. The set is starting with A blog. It’s a baby step. Tomorrow I take the next step with the letter B. This month reminds me that just like the blogs for this challenge; all of my writing is one step at a time. I can’t do it all at once.

Blogging a Book

I’ve heard a number of people talk about blogging a book. In many ways it is a good idea. But there are a number of things an author has to think about if they plan on doing this.

Basically, blogging a book means taking a group of blogs an author wrote and putting them together into a book. Generally, but not always, more information is added. The book may or may not be promoted as a compilation of the authors writing.

If the book is self-published, there is no problem with doing this.

Commenting on blogs

All this month I'm blogging every day for Written World Communications as our yearly Resolve to Write during January. Today, I wanted to share one of the blogs from that site.

I’m still looking at other blogs for information on how to write blogs. One suggestion for building an audience is commenting on other blogs, especially blogs on complimentary topics. It is important to include your blog site with the comments. I have to say I have mixed feelings about this.

Actually I like to get comments when I am blogging and I also enjoy leaving comments for others.
