I started my first blog a few years ago as an experiment.
I was interested in seeing what I could do with the blog format to promote my books, and I wanted to use it to blow off some literary steam from time to time.
And so I began writing the epic blog "Greg Budig (Thoughts, Ideas, Ramblings and Stuff)". I must admit that it was a lot of fun at times. I was able to do some book promotion, some creative writing things and generally have a forum for my opinions. I had so much fun that I decided to start a blog for my second book "Still (A Winter's Journey)".
With that blog I was able to journal about the day to day experiences with that book, from release to reviews to book signings. I felt it was a great way to get the word out.
But now I'm at a crossroads, I felt I needed to simplify my presence on the internet. Between a website that I haven't updated in years, two blogs that have started to compete for my attention, a Jacketflap page I do nothing with....I was getting overwhelmed just thinking about it!
So I've decided to start over with a clean slate, and here it is! I hope to manage this one blog and tie it in with my "Greg Budig Author & Illustrator" Facebook page. Next I need to inform my handful of followers about the change and hope they decide to follow this one. Then I will, in time, delete the other two blogs off the face of the Internet.
So here it is, a new start...a new beginning!!!!! Hope to hear from you soon!
