Yesterday’s post marked my return to blogging. Honestly, I had forgotten I even had this blog, or why I started it in the first place. Probably just a lark.
Years ago I had another blog, that was back when I was heavy into New Age positivity, intentions, manifesting desires, etc. I had it in my head that I was helping people gain a more positive perspective on things. Maybe I was; who knows?
So, why am I blogging again, now? As you might have read in yesterday’s post, I am working on a book (or at least trying to). My hope is to someday self-publish and hopefully be a modest success. *fingers crossed*
I’ve heard from a friend who is self-published, as well as having read in several articles, that it is important to have a web presence. Wattpad is my initial foray to establish my presence, and blogging is the next phase in the grand plan. (Muhahahaha!)
I’m certain much of the success of my friend’s book is due in part to her blog. It established a connection with readers that might otherwise not know about her work. And I am hoping that this initial investment of time and (little) effort will pay off should I ever actually finish and subsequently self-publish my book.
By the by, you should check out my friend’s book. Vanessa’s a great writer and the story is fantastic. It’s about a plus sized fashion producer who finds love in an unexpected place. I’ll say no more, you’ll have to read for yourself. The title is Fatshionista. Do have a look.
Vanessa also has her own blog at that other-big-blog-site-that-shall-not-be-named. (Whew! That was a mouthful). Check her out on Vanessa’s Musing.
