When Did I Become An Expert?

Someone came to me recently with a bit of a problem. Well, by came to me, I mean they made a post on a website I belong to. The question was that they were wondering if it was worth making a blog to post their writings on or not and so I came to their aid with my fabulous answers. I find that it's well worth having a blog if you want to be a writer, even if all you do is post your writings on there. As you probably know when you write something it's worth getting feedback and I think having a blog is one very good way of doing that.

Actually this guy was the reason I made my second blog to post stories on. I wouldn't have done it if he hadn't given me the idea. So anyway I told him that it was worth doing it, and if he did it I would help him get his foot in the door so to speak. He made the blog, and I read his story and it's pretty awesome. It's a fantasy story, which is my favourite genre, so I might be a bit biased. I don't think it really means much though. The story is still worth checking out and the guy is a great writer so I don't mind doing this bit of pimping. It feels good to pimp someone else out for a change actually.

Well I think I've talked him up enough; you can find the blog at Left Write and Centre

He spelled it "centre" but I'm British so I spelled it correctly.

  5. I would definitely call you an expert, and you're right, having a blog as a writer is a must. It's good writing practice, it's a great way to network, and it's a must if you want to promote yourself.

  9. Lol. That's so cool. I found it funny that you misspelled how he spelled it, though. As an American, I thought it kinda ironic. Seeing as you were saying he spelled it wrong...while you spelled it wrong...

    Never knew you were British, though! That's awesome. Nice to know someone who isn't from my neck of the woods.

    Talk to you later. After all, I might need your "expert" advice. ;)

  10. I read it as 'cent-tree' and I don't know what that is. Spell it the American way or I will boycott your British ass.

  15. I think if you are trying to promote yourself, every blog or website you join or make helps a little bit. Of course it is all a question of time management, and you should invest your time where you are reaching the most people, and getting the most positive response.
