Blog Sharing On Self-Publishing
In my Real Life, such as it is, I don’t know a single person who is currently writing a book, who plans to write a book, who has ever written a book in the past, or who even dreams of writing a book someday. Man, do I hang out with boring people, or what? Not really…they are mostly just busy living their lives and not into the thought of spending untold hours hunched over their computers, sweating blood over the merits of using the word “red” versus the word “crimson.” Thus, no writers in my immediate circle of friends and family. But here on WordPress, there are tons of aspiring writers, published writers, struggling writers, and successful writers. That’s one of the best things I’ve discovered in the five months I’ve been part of this community.
It stands to reason there would be a plethora of writers here, though. Obviously, anyone who maintains a busy blog must enjoy writing at least to some extent. Why would they spend time blogging, otherwise? So I can’t say I’m completely surprised that there are so many authors and wannabe authors here. But what often does surprise me is how supportive most of these writers are of each other, freely offering advice, tips, and encouragement. It has been very inspiring to me, and I’m sure very helpful to many other new writers, as well.
In that spirit of sharing blogs that might be of interest to writers of all sorts, I’m passing along a post I read this morning on a blog I have mentioned here before. Cristian Mihai maintains a very interesting blog on writing himself, and has also started a new venture that sounds pretty intriguing as well. (Irevuo). Today, he has shared five links for writers who want to learn more about self-publishing, and even after giving them just a cursory look-see before running off to do some errands, I can tell they are well worth a visit, and probably blogs I will want to follow. I’m passing them along for others to enjoy, too. (Don’t forget to click on “read more on irevuo.com” to see all of the article).
When you’ve checked these blogs out, you might return to Cristian’s site and take some time looking around there, as well. I think you’d enjoy it.Thank you for sharing these blogs, Cristian. I went straight to amazon.com and bought David Gaughran’s Let’s Get Digital, and am looking forward to reading it.
