Excellent advice

Category: Life,Opinions

One of my favorite authors, Jeff VanderMeer, recently posted some excellent advice for writers wanting to have a solid presence online…

(1) Choose your level of involvement with the internet, and stick to it. If you want minimal involvement, create a static website about your book or other creative endeavor. If you want medium-level involvement do a blog. If you want more, do more. But decide upfront what your approach will be, how much time you can spend, and whether you can actually follow through or not. As in any area of life, you will be judged by what you do, not what you say you’re going to do. The disconnect between words and actions will determine how much integrity you have in other people’s eyes.

It’s definitely worth a read.

    This is a great bit of advice! My blog has gone through so many different phases, I often wonder if I would have been better off just making a decision and sticking to it. I guess it has as bad of ADD as I do. 🙂
    So far, I’m very much enjoying your blog.
