As I was updating my other site (www.family-secrets.net) I came to the realisation that it has been over a year since I last made a blog entry. Ashamed to admit it, I can offer numerous excuses for my absence, ranging for a hectic work schedule in 2011, other priorities, enc. Fact of the matter is that I simply ran out of things to blog about. You'd think that after more than 20 years of writing, I would have a plethora of topics to discuss. The lack of topics isn't the problem. It has more to do with a desire to write something meaningful and intelligent.
Competing for readers' attention in the vast blogosphere is much tougher than it appears. There are hundreds, if not more, blogs by published authors, literary agents, publishing houses. I'm not foolish enough to think that mine would have the content or insight to compete with them. I do, however, endeavour to provide those just starting out on their journey to learn from my mistakes and the knowledge I've accumulated over the years. Together, we shall hopefully one day join the ranks of those names such as Sue Grafton, Simon Haynes, JK Rowling. So maybe my aspirations are set a little high, but it's a goal to strive towards. So, let us join together and start our journey afresh for 2012!
