Blogging away, blogging away…
I’m pretty new to this blogging lark (my very first BigJules post was just two weeks ago) but it’s great fun – and thank you for all the feedback and comments! Being an author can be a pretty lonely existence so it’s great to hear from readers. And while I thoroughly enjoy writing the Tom Kydd series, sometimes it’s nice to put pen to paper (metaphorically) outside the confines of the structure of a novel.
Being a bit of a research geek I decided to look into the history of blogs. The first one was in 1994 but it wasn’t until three years later that the term ‘weblog’ (shortened to ‘blog’ in 1999) was coined. Blogs took off in the early 2000s – and now there’s probably well over 200 million blogs worldwide! Makes one feel a bit humble.
Anyway, as well as the BigJules blog that I’ve just started, during this year I’ve been doing a monthly guest blog about writing historical fiction.
I’ve also guest blogged at English Historical Authors, on Horatio Nelson.
I welcome suggestions for future blogs, either in the form of a question to ‘Ask BigJules’ or a general topic you’d like to see covered.
Good thing Kathy’s a hard taskmaster about the number of ‘Kydd’ words I write each day, or I might just get a bit carried away with blogs…
