Buccaneer Blogfest: About My Blog
I started my blog in 2009 the same year I started writing seriously. I can't remember what my very first blog post was about because I've since deleted it. It's funny because just like writing YA it took me awhile to find my natural blogging voice. In the beginning I tried very hard to sound like other popular bloggers, which worked for a little while but I ended up being unhappy with the way I was presenting myself. So for the new year 2011 I decided to get rid of all of those old posts and start over.
The main reason I decided to create a blog was to connect with other writers, and I definitely have. To tell you the truth, I've learned most of what I know about writing from reading blogs. I think I follow almost 200. I love participating in blogfests, memes, and contests. Though, my favorite types of posts are success stories.
My own blog posts tend to be random. I do like talking about books, and sharing things I've learned and experienced on my journey to publication. I really enjoy being apart of such a wonderful community.
Two commenters on my last post asked me what are my favorite horror movies. My top favorites definitely are The Others, The Sixth Sense, The Orphanage, and The Awakening.
In my last post I forgot to share links to my other social media profiles. I'm on Pinterest. You can click here to view my boards.
