Read What a Literary Agent Says

I just discovered a blog by a literary agent, Janet Reid. With so many writers asking me about how to find an agent, I suggest novelists subscribe to Janet's blog and read it regularly. I did not know that agents sometimes revise a manuscript before they send it to a publisher. Did you?

Social Media for Authors
How can authors consistently maintain a presence on popular social media sites? Learn if the demographics of your readers are on Facebook, Twitter, or other services, how to plan relevant social content based on analytics, and if automated services are right for you.

We'll also break down the mystery of blogging and help writers make smart decisions about their online social presence.

Blogger, Feeds, and catching up

Tonight I decided to see who is subscribing to this blog. I seldom go there and because of that, it takes some time for me to remember what I do to find that information.
I want to thank all of you who let me slip into your E-mail Inbox when I post something new on the blog. At least I know you read this page, or at least have the opportunity if the Title interests you.

Writing a blog is fun and also puzzling at times. If I worried that no one was reading my blog, I'd find posting a problem, but because this blog builds in STATISTICS, I can see if anyone dropped by today. What bothered me tonight when I looked up my subscribers list, for a long time on the graph, I had X number of subscribers. Then suddenly, OOPS, I had zero subscribers.
I'm sure glad I didn't check this graph that day. It appeared that all my subscribers suddenly, simultaneously dropped me.
Thankfully, the next day, my numbers were back to X number as it had been before.

This is why I need more classes on blogging, or I need to spend about a month teaching myself so I can get caught up to where most folks were a couple of years ago.

My question for Blogger right now. Why is the default font so small? It looks pitiful on the page. Or is it just me?
