First of all, just so you know, I’m experimenting. I’m trying to build a blog that I want to maintain and others want to read. There are as many ways to do that as there are successful blogs. Those of you who visit me now are going to experience my growing pains, but you’re also going to have the opportunity to influence what I do, based on what you react to, what you look at, and how enthusiastic you are. Isn’t that exciting?
- I may post photos (such as John Scalzi does from time to time, or Jay Lake does with his moments of Zen).
- I may post polls or contests (though those will probably wait until I’ve got at least a couple dozen people reading regularly and commenting at least sporadically).
- I may post links.
- I will post reviews of videos, books, blogs, or anything else that catches my fancy (Thursdays).
- I will post my Q & A sessions (Fridays).
- I may post poetry — haiku, sestinas, centos. Or not.
- I will post snippets when I have something new coming out, so you know what sort of thing to expect.
- I may post about things going on with my family and my life. (For example, my son has wanted a new cat for a couple of years, and I imagine that’s going to happen pretty soon — and that may lead to pictures.)
- I will post thoughts about writing process, editing, epiphanies related to how I work, and productivity.
- I may post other things I haven’t thought of yet.
- I will not post links to quizzes, political or religious diatribes (any discussion of these will be in relation to a particular work of fiction or history), or my latest score in some Flash-based game.
Any questions or suggestions, please leave a comment!
