Nathan Bransford's procrastination subforum has a popular thread just like this. It's a friendly place where your spam can be cherished and celebrated.

Today, I blogged about how to write a great author bio, and your favorite gay boys from In Living Color's 'Men on Film' made a guest appearance:

Let's Talk About Bios, Baby. Let's Talk About You and Me.

Okay, your turn.

I'd have to have a blog first. Still trying to decide what to blog about.

I posted on Friday about my new cover.  I really need to start adding more personal stuff, I think.
  Stars Rain Down Now Available!
    In the ashes of invasion, mankind struggles for survival.
    Some will run,
    Others will hide,
    But a few will rise up and fight back.
    What would you fight for? What would you die for?

  Stars Rain Down Only $2.99 in the Kindle store

Well goodness.   All I posted about was...what I had for breakfast!  But then, you'll find that I post quite frequently about food...

My most recent post was about a memorial to New Zealand's suffragists. It's high time I posted again - thanks for the nudge. :)

Last night's post was about adding a little weight to a comic mystery. (My blog is about progress updates on my ongoing writing - so it's about issues that I'm dealing with as I go.)

I just posted about Amazon's e-book sales figures (they announced today that they own 70-80% of the market), who I think is exaggerating their share (I won't say who, but it rhymes with Snapple), and give my own sales data, which backs up Amazon's numbers.

Good post!  (Although I did have to comment some disagreements with some of your points.  But that's what an opinion post like that is for, right?)

Absolutely, I'm always open to fair conversation or disagreement about any topic. I never get upset at anyone expressing a different opinion, so long as everyone is respectful to each other (which you certainly were!).

I posted a few days ago about my new cover design. And I'm supposed to post tonight (about something), but I still have two chapters left to revise, so it's looking less and less likely the longer I spend on KB :)

On a positive note, according to Google Analytics, my blog traffic is quite diverse. I've had readers from as far away as Turkey and even one in Morocco. That was cool to see. I don't think the traffic is helping my Kindle sales yet, but it's cool to know that people around the world are coming to my site, even if it is just to hear me whine about writing...

It's been glacial ages. Ever since May I've been in transit (far East, Rockies, Europe), and only got home for good a week ago. Once I get used to not living out of a suitcase and finally sort out my memories and photos, I'll dust off Wysardessence and reflect upon my travels a bit. I use my blog mostly for random musings semi-related to writing.
