Why write a blog?

I expect other people have different reasons for writing a blog, but mine are very simple: to express my thoughts and feelings about what is proving to be a most enjoyable, exhilarating, educational and utterly frustrating experience.  Indie publishing! Marketing!  Promotion!   I’m sure there are many who feel the same way.  I would love to hear from you.

There will be two themes to this blog.  The first will concern all aspects of writing and the second history, mostly medieval history, which is my great passion.

Here on my blog I can run on, ramble, wax lyrical, vent or write with journalistic economy as I choose.  I can’t do that on Twitter, or Facebook.  I do belong to some interesting groups but the posts tend to be brief; I think everyone prefers it that way. There is another reason for having a blog.  Everyone seems to expect it of authors.  As if we don’t do enough writing!
