The inside look at why I like to blog

The inside look at why I like to blog

I sure like to blog. But guess what? My blog traffic has flatlined. The number of daily/monthly visitors has gone off since February. For someone whose best trait is “versatility,” this is troublesome. My thoughts turn to, What am I doing wrong? The truth is that I like starting things.

Blogs: Are they dying or dead?

Deadblog–sounds like a bad horror movie I recently went out and tried to find writing blogs or author blogs to post here for you in a list form. I found a most disturbing trend when I did my research and decided THAT was what needed to be shared instead. I visited two different sites. One : Top ten sites for writers and the other was the best author blogs. On both of them, I found 404 errors, old sites not updated in YEARS, or information that just wasn’t interesting and shouldn’t have been on a blog for writers. I was
