Let's Start a Blog
Posted: February 4, 2016
Hi and welcome to my website and most specifically, to my blog.
The decision to include a blog in my author’s platform was not an easy one. After much debate spanning over a few months, I caved and added this section to my website. The reasons behind my hesitation were mainly that I have tried blogging in the past, without much success. Also, I need to balance my writing with the other aspects of my life, including a full-time job and many hobbies. I was worried that keeping a blog might take too much effort or take some precious time away from writing on stories. I still am.
In the end, I decided to go ahead as a blog seems to fill holes that other elements of my author’s platform do not. For example, it seems to be a good place to talk about writing, about my stories and projects, answer questions and share my experience as a writer. I will probably keep my posts short, but the blog allows me to write longer text that might not work on social media.
Recently, I read an article called The No.1 Reason New Bloggers Fail (And What To Do About It) and found some good tips. It gave me hope! It might not work as I think it will, but I believe it is worth giving it a try.
