10 Reasons Why You Should Be Blogging!

  1. Name recognition for published and pre-published. Agents and editors are known to Google potential clients names.

  2. Practice writing, especially condensing to make a point; preparing yourself for those requested interviews.

  3. Blogging with others keep you from coming up with something new every day to keep a personal blog fresh.

  4. Blogging about everyday life is part of writing.

  5. Published authors can promote their books.

  6. Published authors can make new fans and meet old ones.

  7. Gives you a deadline. If you know you have to write something by a certain date, it's amazing what you can come up with. Practicing deadlines in your writing is great training.

  8. A great way to support your chapter. Getting your feet wet for this type of volunteering might help you move forward to additional responsibilities.

  9. Gives you an opportunity to ask questions of other writers about the writing life, or a particular issue you're having with writing. Great opportunity to get input.

  10. And you find out that you're more interesting than you thought!
