I’ve been tagged by the awesome ladies of DEAR AUTHOR. :shock:
I am HONORED!! And although I’m afraid my books are far more interesting than I am (at least, I HOPE so), I’m gonna give it a shot, lol.
1. When did you start blogging and why?
I posted my first blog entry on this site on June 18, 2005. I was SO nervous, and SO naive, and SO glad a few friends showed up for support!
I started blogging because my first e-book, INCUBUS, was about to be released, and quite frankly I wanted to publicize it and build an audience for myself as an author.
Did I mention that I was naive? :yesyesyes:
2. What donâ€™t you talk about?
Geez…hard to say. I think I’ve touched on everything from politics to race and class issues to Barbie and Ken to skunks to dick-on-a-stick.
But no family issues, details that might lead anyone straight to my door, and no slamming other authors (at least, by name). I guard my privacy with a vengeance, and try not to snark because I respect ANYONE who can make it in this business.
(But if it’s well-aimed, I will read it!). :smokin:
3. Are you and your blogging persona the same person?
I think so. We’re both erratic, strange, and suspicious of each other.
4. How do you use blogging to build friendships?
I try to encourage posters to open up here when I can, and I do blog-hop as much as time will allow.
A lot of people aren’t comfortable posting on blogs, but they will come to read…so at least I try to make the blog posts interesting.
I’ve met some great people here!
5. How would you describe your writing style?
I probably wouldn’t. :razz:
Because so many people are busy preparing for the coming conference and dealing with vacations, etc., I’ll hold off on tagging anyone else.
But I’m likely to serve it up cold one day. :twisted:
And if you have a mo, drop by and see Tracy’s brand-new baby!
