This week marks my two year blogiversary. Though my posts have been very infrequent of late, I never forget where my blog has gotten me. Many writers sing the praises of blogging- it creates friendships, support, sense of community... but for me, blogging has led to even more than that.
For me, blogging has directly led to a publishing contract!
Don't believe me? Check my PiBoIdMo Guest Post at Tara Lazar's blog.
Without participating in PiBoIdMo in 2009, I would never have had the idea for GOLDI ROCKS AND THE THREE BEARS.
Without whining on my own blog about how pathetic my idea list was, I would never have realized that this idea was actually a gem! And I would never have gotten this comment on my post from Beth Coulton:
I LOVE the Goldi-Rocks one! Want to collaborate?
Beth later emailed me with a one paragraph synopsis, and I was immediately sold on the idea!
So, thanks to all my blog followers and commenters. Without you, I would never have written GOLDI ROCKS which is now under contract with Putnam. (Well, almost... the ink hasn't quite dried yet :)
A toast to you all!
