Taking the Pressure Off Blogging

Just when it looked like blogs were taking over our lives, Neil Gaiman comes to our rescue with some sage advice in this piece from “Publishing Perspectives,” byeditor-in-chief Ed Nawotka, a longtime journalist and current Texan.

“Use your blog to connect. Use it as you. Don’t ‘network’ or ‘promote.’ Just talk,” says Gaiman. “It’s much more important to write than to blog, so only blog if it makes you happy and if you have something to say.”

A breath of fresh air!
