I've been thinking alot about my blog. I keep reading other's blogs and am so impressed with the knowledge and insight they show. I hear about how important it is to create a brand. To create a following. To promote yourself "before" you get publish. You write about writing to get more people to follow you and glean from your wisdom.
So how does a beginner writer write about writing with confidence? I can review and share what I read in writing books, but most writers know everything already. I am not sharing anything new.
I can share personal stuff on the blog, but then people don't really want to know about my kids all the time and my kids probably wouldn't appreciate it anyway.
So all you people who read blogs, why do you read them? What brings you back? What are you looking for in reading blogs? Is it really necessary to write about writing?
