I must admit that the idea of blogging is a bit off-putting. I created a blog a couple of years ago, and planned to use it as a promotional platform for the book. I created a Google group, as well. The group was a more ideal means of communicating with contributors and allowed me to email contributors simultaneously, so the blog fell to the wayside.
I do not mind having my work critiqued. I think that I am a good writer, but my spelling skills are horrible. Really, ya’ll. I cannot spell! Spell-check is my very, very, very best friend! My atrocious spelling coupled with my work schedule just made daily blogging less appealing.
When my Wheatmark Inc. Account Manager suggested that I create a blog to market the book, I thought score. I already have a blog, but then it dawned on me that I would have to actually use the blog on a daily basis and try to figure out what I would discuss and then proof what I write so that I do not make a complete @ss out of myself. Yes, my spelling is just that bad.
So this it ya’ll. This is my venture into the opinionated and hopefully non-fleeting world of blogging. More to come soon...
