Starting Over ..... Are You Serious?

Starting over, is NOT one of the easiest things to do!

It means that you have to admit that you've made a mistake. It may not be grave, but it is a mistake nonetheless.

And that brings me to the present. I could not understand why this site that I had worked so hard on, was not generating any sort of traffic. I knew that it had nothing to do with people's lack of reading, rather it was or is, lack of interest.

I was so excited to begin a blog, that I had not done enough homework, to see how to properly construct one up. What all it takes to keep interest.

So, I did the smart thing. I researched!

Yes, I did. Lots and lots of popular, and frequented author's blogs/websites. This helped me tremendously! When I look back at my prior blogs, I noticed how much they lacked, in humour, insightful information, and engaging topics. I needed to fix all of that.

And so, I came up with a game-plan that will hopefully shoot me in the right direction in achieving my goals.

I plan to blog about things that have helped me with my writing. How-To's, Blogging, Platforming , the Stress of Finding the Time to Write, Querying, Rejection slips, Making other writer/author friends, and anything else that I can think of, that I as a writer would find very beneficial.

I'm as always, open to helpful suggestions, not only in my writing, but in building a web presence, tips and tricks on writing ..... you name it.

I'm looking at trying to blog every Monday to start. And on Fridays to close.
