Is it important for a writer to blog?

Personally, I think it’s up to the individual writer.

So why do it? Why blog? 

Believe me, there are weeks when I consider stopping. And I guess when I no longer enjoy meeting so many talented and informed writers, I’ll stop. But, I’ve learned a lot from each and every one of Y’all.

I also, blog about my learning process. Not an expert, I’m learning as I go and sharing helps me too. Sometimes I think it not only takes a village to raise a child but to develop a good writer. At least in my case. So, for now, I’ll carry on.

  1. I do think it’s important for writers to blog. I’m new to blogging but feel blogging will give me a presence and possibly bring new potential readers of my work. I also plan on blogging not only about my work but about me as a person, my interests, a day in my life. I believe readers enjoy connecting with writers on many different levels.

  2. I blog because I like writing personal articles and feeling I belong to a community.

    If it is so important for writers to blog, why don’t Stephen King do it?
