I just returned from a wonderful writer’s conference (I’ll write more about it on October 30). I learned a lot of useful things (as usual), but one thing really jumped out at me at the first session. It inspired and motivated me – you’re going to reap the benefits. Here’s the story …
The first class I attended was Blogging Past the Blah, Blah, Blah. If you’ve been reading my blog this year, you know why I picked that class – my blog is boring. That’s okay, you can agree. I wanted to do something professional this year, to make my blog a resource.
It’s a resource alright – a great example of how to take a somewhat successful blog and flush it down the crapper. This year presented a lot of helpful info, but it lost me. This weekend’s conference reminded me that my blog is a reflection of me – I need to offer you something, but I also need to be true to myself. It’s time to get back to Karin’s writings.
I’m still working out the details, but I’ve already decided on a few things:
1. There will be more funny.
2. There will be more romance.
3. There will be more movie/TV references.
4. There will be more interviews.
I can’t imagine you’ve enjoyed reading my blog this year … it’s certainly been a struggle for me to write it. That’s not right on so many levels. That will change. I promise. Next month I’ll wrap up the ‘hot to publish a book’ series (for the three of you out there waiting for the next post), then we’ll have a Christmas tribute in December. January? Just you wait …
Well, that’s about it. I know this post is short, but this is all I have to say. Now it’s your turn – what do you like to see in a blog? What would you like to see here? (No promises, but I’ll consider everything!)
