…for newbie self-publishing Authors, wary of starting a blog… be unafraid… be very unafraid… #TBSU…

…let me state from the outset, I can be as biased as the next guy… at my age, this ol’ Jurassic doesn’t have to be too concerned about the WURLD’s opinions of my WURK… I am as capable of passing judgments as anyone… but I’ve also learned, that the most important person to please in anything I undertake is meNUTHIN else really matters… with no false modesty (we never did false modesty growing up in Docklands, Govan in Glasgow), I like what I scribble these days… could my stuff bear improvement?… of course it can… but there comes a point where the ‘improvement phase’ can swamp any creativity an author started out with… stop ‘improving’ when the masterpiece is at a level you like… I’m not by nature a nit-picker, but if I looked hard enuff, I’m certain I could find wee things to ‘improve’ in the acknowledged classic novelists… but I don’t… the next person who writes the perfect book will be the first one ever to achieve that… the same thing applies to the current thrust of ‘blogs to admire’… I see far too many folks trying to be sum’thing other than themselves with their blogs… scared to appear gauche… frightened to come across as ’wrong’… let me enlighten yeez… yer blog is yer own soapbox… fashion it as yeez like… use it to propagate your own ‘Author’s Brand’… for newbie self-publishing Authors, wary of starting a blog… be unafraid… be very unafraid… at the click of yer mouse yeez can link yer blog to every SOSYAL NETWURK channel yeez choose… start to develop the platforms for yer genius… we Lads and Lassies of Blog Land toil too long and too assiduously not to deserve the best chance to shine in as many corners of the Web as can be reached… so be not afraid to venture onto that dark Web… rather, rage yer way there… and enjoy… see yeez  later… LUV YEEZ

  4. Your personality shines out in your blog and I love it, especially the part where you say “there comes a point where the ‘improvement phase’ can swamp any creativity an author started out with… stop ‘improving’ when the masterpiece is at a level you like…”

  5. You clearly understand a lot more about marketing than me. I can stagger around in Blogland, but soon get lost among the Twitterers and Face Packers

  6. Encouraging words. The phrase ” can my stuff bear improvement” stopped me in my bear tracks.

  7. Great post. Great advice. A friend of mine recently asked what my blog was about. I told him to look for himself–I would appreciate the stats!–but then thought about it and said, “it’s about me sitting down in front of the computer–what happens after that is anybody’s guess.”

  8. …LUV IT ! I often respond in similar vein when asked, ‘what are your books about?’ by saying, ‘about 300 pages, give or take’ :):):)
