Last week I was asked to go along to the Edinburgh City of Literature monthly salon to say a few words about blogging. I was expecting people to be interested in the mechanics of how to blog, and had even started writing a post with some tips – but the question that came up most was whether people should be doing it at all.
I am currently trying to write two totally different articles for two separate publications, both about 12 books in 12 months and how it got started. They’re due at different times and the word count is different for each.
It’s not as easy as you might think.
