Welcome to my updated blog. I’ve been reading the book How To Be a Writer in the E-Age… and Keep Your E-Sanity! by Catherine Ryan Hyde and Anne R Allen, and finding it enormously helpful. When I read that Anne recommended that you only have one blog, and it should have your name on, this was contrary to advice I had previously, which had caused me to set up a separate blog for my book Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth.
So I found her email address and wrote to her. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Within half an hour, she had looked at my blog and sent me detailed advice in her reply. I was very grateful, and I took the advice. So this blog now has my name on, and I imported my Alina blog. There is a new page with introductory information and a lot of background on – check it out.
The other advice in the book was that Wednesday and Thursday are the best days for posting, and Saturday and Sunday the worst for traffic. Combined with Anne’s advice that I should respect my writing and not call it scribbling, and I have changed all my Scribbling Saturday posts to Writing Wednesday, and will be posting on Wednesday from now on. Thinking Thursday is unchanged.
I have put explanations on the various pages, that I hope makes the site clear. I would be very grateful to any of you who will look over the new format and leave comments with your advice. Maybe now I can get back to actually writing!
