Brand New Kind of Blog
Not too long ago, I developed a brand new kind of blog. After all, I wanted to provide an avenue for feedback on my book, without significantly impacting the nature of my existing blogs. I also realized that I didn't want to spend a lot of time managing yet another blog, as important as a book blog might be from a promotional standpoint.
I've seen promotional blogs before and I knew they weren't for me, for a host of reasons. Still, I wanted to give my book and its readers their own special place on the web. What to do?
I decided to create a hybrid. Not exactly a website. Not exactly a blog. Let's call it a "wog". Because the post content will stay mostly the same, like a website. But the established posts will be open to comments, like a blog. Additionally, I'll be putting blog links in the sidebar, based on reader activities. (Check out the top post there to see what I mean.)
In March, I'll be teaching blog workshops* at Mount Hermon, and I promise to talk about the "wog". I might even give your opinions, if that's okay. So that together we can discuss with the world a brand new kind of blog. A wog.
* Yours truly is going to help present too, which I'm pleased about.
