The Love of Writing Expanded-Annette Snyder



I did something for a year I thought I’d hate.  It was free publicity so I did it anyway.  I co-hosted a blog.  I read three books a month and highlighted those authors for ten days. I posted questions and comments about the work and kept conversations going.  I liked it, pretty much but with my own writing, home and real job, the blog took precious time.  I did get an idea.  If I spent so much effort working on a blog for someone else, why not start my own?  But the time?  How could I do a blog without using my allotted writing time?   Check out Fifty Authors from Fifty States  http://annettesnyder.blogspot.com  I’ve lined up one writing professional from each state per week for the year.  What a great way to learn about the amazing talent nestled in the interesting niches of the USA.  I get to work on a blog because I enjoy it and I also get to clue visitors in about new genre’s, new writing avenues and different parts of the country.  Want to visit Arizona or Florida?  Check out those posts to find out what not to miss when you do!  AND, if you visit weekly and comment, you could win a pretty cool surprise at the end of the year.
