World Literary Cafe has a Blog Follow going on. I signed up and dove in and spent the last couple of hours blog hopping.
Blog hopping for people like who didn’t know, is where like-interest blogs link up, usually through some place like WLC. You can just follow the links to hop from one to another. Somewhere in there are blogs that are involved in multiple hops and I frequently found myself tumbling way outside the bounds of writing and publishing into blogs about everything from recipes to someone’s running log of his children’s growth.
At any rate, you follow the blogs you find you like, if you can figure out how to do so. (I couldn’t always figure it out. If it’s that complicated, why bother?)
Here’s a link to the WLC Blog Follow if anyone else wants to jump in.
Yeah, there’s a lot of crap out there. Here’s hoping The Naive Optimist is not near the bottom. A lot of them were entirely shameless self-promotions. I know we’re all supposed to be doing self-promoting, and if it works, great. That’s what all blogs are really about at heart, including The Naive Optimist. But it doesn’t have to be entirely shameless. You can try to give something while you try self-promotion. And I don’t mean free downloads of your novel.
