Edited to change the title so it'll stick around. :D

So, fellow inkslingers, do you actually find time to keep a blog? Is yours dedicated to self-promotion, random musings, heart-wrenching soul-barings, or a bit of everything?

I started a new blog last night, ferrying posts from Amazon to my new little niche on the Net, Wysardessence (http://carolynkephart.blogspot.com/). Although I now and again mention my books, I mainly enjoy commenting about the things that influence my writing or enhance my life--art, literature, history, travel.

Let's hear about yours!

Writerly regards,

CK

Funny you should mention it. Ha! I just finished posting two blogs.  One on Author's Den and one on Blogspot where I see you also Bloguligize. (Yes, I made that up)  See my signature for the address.  I like to talk about silliness in general and as it applies to my life. ;) I have my books listed in the side bar... just in case.  So I'm going to look at yours, I'm just saying. :)

I checked your blog out too, even though I have to admit white text on black background makes my eyes bleed. :D Otherwise, nice.

My blog is where I go to relax with random musings, although now and again I indulge in venting...

Terrific blog. Funny in all the right places, and full of heart. Thanks for the link! :)

Thinking her blog is far more Plain Vanilla than Whirled Peace, and looking to do something about that... :D

Here's mine on Blogger:
http://lostsecretoffairies.blogspot.com/
It has been a series of essays on researching for my new book and all the updates on "The Lost Secret of Fairies" and the second book "The Lost Secret of the Green Man". Plus, it is about my own personal journey as a writer. Feel free to check it out and leave comments. I love reading them.

I've been keeping a blog, with another group of writers, on the writing life for about 18 months now. In fact, I just posted a blog today (I usually post this one on Sundays) about whether writers should post their unpublished work on the net. It's at http://tinyurl.com/cvwpoj.

Since the mysteries in my Alex Bellamy series are centered around white-collar crime, I keep a second blog all about white-collar crime issues, including fraud, ID theft, computer hacking, and such. I post this one on Wednesdays at http://tinyurl.comdbe5rp

And finally, my daughter and I post a blog about our family life called The Kong Chronicles on MySpace at http://tinyurl.com/pnvzxb. Since my daughter's in university, works part time, and plays in a band, we don't do them often, but we have managed to post 7 of them since we began. It's great fun.

Got one as well, located here:

http://bpmyers.blogspot.com

Use it primarily to announce acceptances of short stories and to flog the anthologies I'm in.

Used it recently to flog my new Kindle release titled A Truck Story, a charming and hilarious baseball-themed novella, available now from Amazon.Com.

I do indeed blog :D

The contents tend to be very random, however. What with the website, Facebook, etc. to keep up with the daily trials of writing...my blog seems to be a place for me to get away and let the readers see the real me. I hope that doesn't send them off running hysterically!! ::)

I blog two or three times a week:

www.BearMountainBooks.com 

I talk about my cat project (we adopted a couple of feral strays), food, gardening, books!....food....oh wait, I said that...soap making, once in a great while quilting, and whatever odds and ends I think about.  There's a couple of travel articles, some stories about my family and so on.

Y'all are welcome to pop on over and have some virtual tea and cake!

I now have three blogs that contain basically the same thing as far as blogs go. They are simply on different sites with different formats:
PS: Your Wordpress blog is excellent, Brendan. Spent some time there yesterday.

And congrats on your latest release.
