Learning Curve

I just attended a conference for the business side of writing. There were many things brought up that resonated with me, but the one that stuck in my mind was mentioned during a meal.

Why waste X amount of hours writing blog posts that only a handful of people read when that time could be spent on the book your writing.

I have on a good day, just over a 100 people read this blog. Is my time best spent coming up with something to say and posting here, rather than getting a thousand words written on my current book? I don't know.

Do you 100 or so who come to my blog and read what I write here feel it is an important part of staying connected to me? 

Just wondering if this is a worthwhile way to spend my time I could be writing.

I find writing a blog uses a different part of my brain than writing a novel. And sometimes I just like to vent and the blog is the perfect place to do that.

I basically blog for myself. Having readers are a bonus. Commenters even more so. :)

Hi Stacy, Thanks for stopping in and giving me your thoughts. I'm thinking about just leaving it up for friends to share their books and posting when I have something to say. This trying to stay on a schedule when I have other group blogs and a tighter book schedule coming up isn't going to work. Thanks!
