Unfortunately, I missed the beginning of the workshop because I was having a one-to-one session with an editor, but I still learned a lot from the half I attended. Some of the main points that I am taking away are these:
- Have a clear, practical URL - I've gone back to using my name, as it's the simplest and most relevant option.
- Stick to one subject - my last blog was a mixed bag, but this is going to be about writing and everything connected with writing.
- Keep it positive and interesting - I'm a fairly upbeat person and whilst I can get a bit depressed and self-deprecating when it comes to my writing, I know nobody wants to read something that will make my depression contagious! They also don't want to read posts that are boring and so mundane that they put people off.
