Question. By show of hands (or comments—either way) how many of you (my readers) are writers (as in writing, revising, submitting with the hope of being published) and who are just interested readers who are completely supportive and awesome because you keep coming back? (And could I write a longer sentence with more parentheticals? Wait. Don’t answer that.)
I’m just wondering. There is no right or wrong answer, really. Just, you know, when I’m preparing my posts, it helps to know my audience. And I think it’s really important to know your audience well. So who are you? Cuz I know you’re not all writers wanting to know about the publishing world. Some are. But I also know there are a bazillion writing blogs out there. Agent blogs. Author blogs. Publisher blogs. Book blogs. Goodreads, Shelfari. A. Lot.
I’ve always been a big believer in writing from the heart. So I do. And I don’t intend to change that. I could easily jump on a hundred different bandwagons, join blogfests, color my hair purple (wait, did that already), and rethink my content according to supply and demand. (Wow, that makes me sound like a grocery store.)
However, writing and the publishing industry are both a big part of my life, and I do blog about them from time to time. I try not to focus solely on those things, because I know not everyone wants to read about them constantly. But today I’m wondering.
Who are you? And what brings you back here time and again? Just curious.
Thanks for the feedback.
