VHG is still in the first flush of blogging love – that is enjoying it and not yet feeling too overwhelmed by the need to keep the blog updated. However, I know for some bloggers – most notably Twenty Major, Sinead Gleeson and Shane Hegarty maintaining a blog over a number of year became too much.
It’s exactly this that has prompted Scatted Authors Society to get together to develop a collaborative blog. Apparently a rota system means the blog is updated regularly, often daily, and yet no one author gets burned out too quickly. SAS functions as a networking and support group for authors scattered across Britain and the blog is one outcome of their connections.
Thanks for John Dougherty for the nod in their direction and also for the good conversation over dinner last night – yes I know shameless name dropping – did I mention my afternoon tea with Cornelia Funke last week, lunch with Jon Berkley, launching with Derek Landy and dinner with Kevin Crossley Holland?
