The World's Worst Blogger
In the midst of all that querying, I read a lot of agent blogs, submission guidelines, FAQs, Writers' Resources and the like. A lot of them talk about what kind of on-line presence they like writers to have. Most of them mention a blog.
Some are kind enough to tell you what they don't like to see in a blog. Namely: infrequent posting.
Being the insecure little unpub'd writer that I am, I--of course--interpret this to mean: "Liz, you don't post enough on your blog, and even if I were interested in offering you representation, one little google search would have me thinking otherwise, because here you are NOT POSTING ON YOUR BLOG."
So, now I wonder--is having a bad blog worse than having no blog? And if so, what do I do now?
I'll tell you one thing--this place needs a cosmetic overhaul. I've got blog ennui. It's ugly here and recent attempts to snapify it up have resulted in making it uglier. It's like I got an ugly house and covered it in a coat of builder's white. Blech.
New Year's Resolution perhaps? Perhaps.
What do you guys think: Is a bad blog worse than no blog?
