My dear husband has told me several times that if I want to start blogging, I should have at least five posts written and ready to go. And in my usual way, I thanked him for his excellent advice and did not heed it.
I’m almost through with my first revision of the first novel I’m going to publish and realized that without an audience, it’s not going to go anywhere. It might be delightful, but without anyone else reading it, what’s the point? They say to write for yourself, but I don’t think that’s quite what they had in mind.
In any case, here is my opening salvo into ~finding my audience~ and ~marketing~ and all those other buzzwords. All I really want is for people to find and read and enjoy my work. So, as I take a big, deep breath, with my finger hovering over “Publish,” here we go.
