Blogging away

One of the blogs I read regualrly on e-harlequin -- Isabel Swift has now moved over to blogger. This means that I don't have to keep guessing if a new post has been put up, because of the way e-harlequin archives things. Isabel is VP at Harlequin and in charge of new business. I find her posts thought provoking and informative as she tend to blog about new things in the company, things happening in the industry and wonderful new upcoming books.

Her latest post is no exception and is all about increasing one's blogging profile. There is something called Technorati that keeps track of blogs, and apparently it can help to have one's profile on there. It takes a few minutes to set up and to claim your blog.

All of which is very interesting but not getting my wip written. I know what is happening next, I know why it is happening and I know what will happen after. I just have to write the thing.

I also have a library talk to prepare. My contract as such came through today. I had thought I was speaking about Writing Histrical Fiction, instead my talk is entitled A Taste of Romance and I am speaking about writing Romance. Fine but just so long as I know BEFORE I give the talk...

I just had to stop by to say hello--I am pretty new at the blogging thing and yours is my first link! I am so excited! Sorry, I know I am supposed to be very professional here. I am delighted you are finding my posts interesting and helpful. Please feel free to comment, ask questions. It's nice to hear I'm not just writing into a void! (and I love libraries too, glad to hear your talk went well)
