Another terrific post, Nola. Thanks for sharing all those ideas. I seem to recall acting upon your previous persuasive advice when I set up my website to include a blog page. (Then, like Jeanette, a 'crazy patch' thwarted my best intentions.) I have just started posting again with a slow and steady approach and I'm curious to see what shape it will take. I lean towards giving readers 'a taste of my personality' from your point 7, and let it evolve from there.
LOL Mazzy. Is 'persuasive advice' a euphemism for nagging? Great to hear that Mazzy's Musings has started up again. As your writing interests are quite eclectic, it's probably a good idea to give readers a taste of your personality. I try to add a bit of humour in mine and people seem to appreciate that (though not so much of that in today's post). I'll be interested to see where your musings take you. Thanks for commenting :)
Euphemisms have a place in the world of literature ( and among literary fiends, er, friends.) I'm sure many a soul has fallen under the spell of your 'nagging' ministry and become better for it.
LOL - I'll have to quote you on that. Actually you're the second Quill who's said that to me today. It's a gift :)
