I t seems that for a lot of authors, a blog is a good way to connect with readers and promote one's works.  I also know that I personally do not have the time to devote to putting enough content onto a blog to make it worthwhile for readers to follow my blog.  I suspect there are others in the same boat.  Therefore, I propose a group blog in which a few of us can band together to jointly erin a blog about our various works (lives, etc.).  This might not be a new idea, and maybe is an epic fail, but seems plausible to me.

I think the benefits would be three-fold:

1) it will allow for a blog with enough fresh content to keep readers engaged without any one writer having to take too much time away from work/life/writing to add content;
2) it will allow one writer to promote their works to the readers of another writer and vice versa, increasing potential readers exponentially;
3) it provides one more place for other denizens of the Writers' Cafe to promote their works through doing a guest blog, Q &A, etc. as I assume the blog will always be supportive of other writers from these boards.

I think four to five others writers would be the right number to launch this thing.  I am thinking of calling it The Writers' Bloc, but am open to other ideas.

If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Thanks for the responses so far.  To be clear, I don't anticipate that I will be running everything.  I think the contributors will all have equal rights to post content and as a group we will agree who else to feature, interview, etc.

C.C. - no worries on the hijack, and I will check your site out.
