YAY OR NAY WEDNESDAY
Journalist Danuta Kean recently spoke at the Publishers Publicity Circle about blogging. She said that publishers should think carefully before encouraging their authors to start blogs, since blogging involves a lot of work and doesn't necessarily attract a lot of readers. But on the other hand a good blog is one of the few places where an author is able to brand their personality and establish a relationship with readers.
I absolutely love author blogs: Meg Cabot's brightens my day, I look forward to Jennifer Weiner's increasingly infrequent - but always worth the wait - posts and have learned a lot from Jennifer Crusie's various blogs.
But are you interested in authors' blogs? Do they make you more (or less!) likely to read their books? Basically, blogging authors - Yay or Nay and Why?
