I was a "mummy blogger" before I started writing books, so I am used to that particular platform. Now as an author, I can see the benefits in blogs. They are a wonderful avenue for keeping in touch with readers and providing a variety of information that newsletters and social media can't. I've enjoyed writing posts that give a deeper insight into my books. In saying that, I've been a bit slack in maintaining my blog....only because I want to finish my current WIP!
Thanks for that, Deb. It's great you had all that blogging experience first. I think blogging is something some authors don't necessarily think about until they have a book out and then it can be a lot to juggle at once. And I can certainly understand the balance between blogging and trying to finish the WIP. I put my blog on hold for a while for that reason, but when I picked it up again this year, I found I had a lot more to say. Thanks for commenting.
