After reading another author’s blog recently I started rethinking my entire blog and it’s meaning. It’s purpose.
I contemplated how many books this blog specifically sold for me and realized it wasn’t many. I wondered if I should change my ways to help promote the selling of one or all of my books and what I’d have to change to make that happen. Then I realized, I just love that you are reading this and yes, I’d love for you to buy my book but I think reading in general is extremely important.
Besides, I love having an avenue as random as a blog that I can let my writing flow instead of worrying about keeping my characters straight or my plot thick. My mind doesn’t have as far to go for the switch from non-fiction to my blog posts so I can take my break to write them.
Like the man dressed as a banana running beside the quarterback, I can serve my purpose with my blog – promoting literacy, gaining attention – and have fun doing it. And if you buy my book – thank you, you’re wonderful! I have two more for you as well! And if you don’t, you still know who I am and cared enough to come and read my site and for that I appreciate you.
So I may get on topic once in a while but for the most part, I enjoy keeping you guessing at what is coming next and having fans of all walks and reads of books.
Thanks for reading,
