[I still consider this post to be my best on blogging]
I believe passion is the key element in any creative endeavor.
There are 56 million WordPress blogs. That makes it almost impossible to come up with a new idea for a blog. And even if you come up with something new, if you’re not passionate about it, if you don’t work hard, it’s all for nothing.
I made this blog mostly because I had heard it’s very important for a self-publisher to have one. I needed a place to showcase my books, a place to promote, and a place that would act like a sort of central hub for my other social media accounts. And I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about. I just went with the flow, writing book reviews, movie reviews, and self-publishing related news. But everything changed when I started to write essays about writing and art.
Because it was something I was passionate about, more than anything else in the world, people connected with my words.
