Angie made me do it.
If it wasn't for her, I'd be happily blogging away semi-regularly over at my original blog, Kati's Korner. But she just had to go and post on her blog about publicity and name recognition.
And I'd been breaking just about every rule of effective blogging. Author name prominent on blog? Nope. Book cover noticeable? Nope. Blogging enough? Nope and nope.
See, I'd started to blog before I sold -- and before I took my author name. So my blog was under a different name, with a different purpose, and wasn't really meshing with my online goals anymore. But I'm a stubborn cuss, and did my best to make it work.
Sometimes, though, you've got to cut bait and start again.
So with one week to go before I'm officially a published author (woo-hoo!), it's time to get with the program. (Especially when my editor -- see above -- is giving out such fabulous advice.)
Without further ado, welcome to Kate Davies Blogs! I'll be blogging about the writing life, life in general, and other fun stuff -- and still cheering on friends and colleagues when they find writing success. I won't be posting on Kati's Korner anymore, but I will leave it up so that those earlier successes are preserved for posterity. Or something like that. :)
In any case, thanks for making the jump with me. And here's a quick question for you:
What interests you most when visiting an author's blog? What are you inclined to read about, and what keeps you coming back?
