I have a new column up at Romancing the Blog. This time I’m talking about pro writers blogging, and whether it might be a good idea to have multiple blogs (or journals or mailing lists or forums or whatever) for different types of posts, so people who just want to know when your new books are out or how your dog is doing can subscribe to your more “mellow” blog without having to scroll past your political analyses or your dissections of someone else’s book.
I’m responding to a couple of other posts that went up within the last few days, but you don’t have to read those if you don’t want to; I’m pretty sure mine makes sense on its own. The earlier topics were about whether a writer should express strong opinions on their blogs, or even controversial opinions. My thought was compartmentalizing, so readers can choose for themselves what they want to subscribe to.
What do you think?
