I'm beginning to get overwhelmed and I know why. I need to narrow down my search for the right blogs. So far I've "followed" four or five that have to do with writing/publishing and I think I need to stop there for now. I need to carefully read their posts and see what they have to offer. I'm doing too much skimming and joining and not enough reading. If I keep going like this, I'm going to start ripping my hair out. All I want to do is write my blog (which I'm finding is loads of fun), network with the right people, and find the right way to go about publishing my book, whether it's through a traditional route or through online publishing. I think I've been in too much of a hurry and so I need to slow down, too. I would love to hear from other authors on their experiences, but since I don't have a lot of traffic I know I need to find these authors and read their blogs. Hopefully, the ones I've chosen to start with will be just what I need.
I have a feeling this is going to take a lot longer than anticipated, which is all right, I am a fairly patient person. I didn't say that I had to like doing all this studying, researching, and reading though, but in the end it should make me a smarter author. Maybe even save me some time in the long run. We'll see how it goes, or maybe someone out there knows the perfect publisher who will take me by the hand and guide me through the process. Fat chance of that, but I can dream, right?
Anyway, I hope everyone out there in Blog Land has a wonderful and fulfilling week!
