I started my blog in February 2008. (Before it was here, it was over on LiveJournal at http://varkat.livejournal.com.) This means that I’ve been blogging for about six years now. In that time so much about the industry has changed that my earliest blogs sound like nostalgia for some bygone era when people still sent paper submissions and agents and editors developed chronic back pain lugging manuscripts back and forth to work.
Now I vlog for the YA Rebels; I blog monthly with Magical Words; and I do guest posts and interviews for various and sundry other sites on a regular basis. I haven’t said all there is to say, because the industry is ever-evolving. But sometimes it feels like that. Because of my extensive client list and the fact that I’m a published writer myself, sometimes it seems that the only time/energy I have left for my blog is for good news and happy book birthdays. (And the occasional guest blog from others or worldbuilding series, which you can find here, here and here.)
So, my question to you all is: are you still interested? Are you still tuning in? If so, do you have any suggestions for keeping things fresh? Topics you’d like me to cover in the new year?
Your feedback will be invaluable for letting me know whether I should go on and in what manner. So, I won’t exactly say, “Speak now or forever hold your peace,” but you get the idea.
