    I struggle with blogging as well. It seems my time is better spent on my WIP or reading. I do keep up with a post each week or so, but I still wonder if I’m waiting my time. I do agree that a successful writer can turn off the blog and make a much better income for the same amount of work. For the unpublished, we should probably play it safe and keep a blog. I’m afraid it’s expected by agents and editors these days (correct me if I’m wrong).

    Blogging takes time, but the connections I have made have been so valuable. Everyone seems to love Evernote, maybe I better try it! I always drag my feet, but end up loving the new technology I try.

    Wow – great info! I’ve not tried Evernote, but think I will now. The blogging posts are very helpful as I have laid off the blogging for a while as I gear up to restart with a blog that will hopefully attract people who will also be interested in my novel when it debuts! Thank you for such a helpful post! Love News You Can Use!!
