|From my first blog post|
I blog for three reasons:
- To make myself write;
- To share news and information I think might be of interest; and perhaps cynically
- As a marketing exercise, to keep my writing projects 'out there'.
Of course, you can never tell what people are going to latch on to, whether it's on a blog, Facebook, Twitter or any of the other myriad social media platforms. I've realised that a good picture is helpful; one of my most popular Facebook posts was of a parsnip that looked like an Ood from Doctor Who. People are strange.
Has the time come to call it a day? Is there a better way to achieve my three objectives?
