Why Writers Need to Blog and Why Blogging Helps Build a Readership

Why Writers Need to Blog

My view as I sit and write blog posts twice a week. 

I am a fan of blogs by writers and I really like those that give helpful hints or lessons they have learned about the writing world.

Blog posts are shareable and they stick around for a long time. FB and Twitter posts slip away quickly and are forgotten. I can easily find a blog post published on my blogs or on the NCWN-West blog in the past seven years. Belinda Pollard's article explains why every writer should have a blog.

Check out the article and tell us what you think? If you have a published book or several, maybe blogging once or twice a week would help you create a readership for your work. If you are beginning to publish in journals and magazines, having a blog as part of your online presence gets an editor's attention.

This reader is very, very happy to find writer's blogs. And yes, I have bought books and expanded my world.
