Our staff is a collection of paranormal romance authors with one thing in common (besides a love for pie) -- we dish up our paranormal with a sprinkle, a splash, or a heaping helpin' of humor and wit. Come in and have a seat. The coffee's hot and the blue plate special is out of this world!The Otherworld Diner
A recent theme on pie was an excellent example of blogging around a theme. Each contributer posted their own take on the subject of pie and some aspect of writing:
Then I realized there was another "pie" I’d worked with just a couple of weeks ago: The Pie of Life.
Elle Amery does a once a week theme: Elle Amery: Elle Amery's Grammar Tip of the Week She tells her readers: "As both a writer and an editor, I can tell you that it’s much easier to edit and revise someone else’s work than to write perfect prose."
Or if you're interested in writing a fiction blog, check out Alice Gray's samples of her lovely erotic writing: Aliceblackandwhite Alice's passion for the sensual is clear in every detail of her site.
The theme you choose will be as unique to you and your genre as your favorite kind of pie. You should be passionate about the theme you choose. I'm passionate about immersive fiction and I don't think anyone reading my blog will miss that fact.
So now you have the Flock browser we talked about last week. Pick a theme, plan your article, click the little blue quill pen in the browser toolbar and start writing your first post.
You configure the editor with your blog settings under the tools menu. You can either save the draft, or hit the publish button and your new article will post.
All the quotes and sources I included in today's post were made using Flock's one-click "blog this" feature. No geek skills required. More on quoting and linking(as essential to blogging as veins to a circulatory system) next week.
