Simon holds forth on blogging
It's all very incestuous - here I am, posting to this blog about an interview with me about blogging on someone else's blog!
Anyway - this morning I was interviewed by internet marketer Chris Price about blogging for beginners. Finally, you can hear my Russell Crowe accent! (Warning: Not as exciting as it sounds)
The more observant among you may notice that I'm not as articulate in speaking as I am in writing. I notice this in other writers too, and wonder if it actually helps the writing process, because we have to work harder to really explain what we're on about. Or perhaps not.
In fact, Adam and I were discussing this just the other day during his visit to New Zealand - which was great, by the way, and will probably be the source of many posts on this here blog.
Adam was saying there are some who appear quiet in person but then write forcefully, others who have a powerful personal presence but their written communications fall flat, and others still who seem to 'have it' both ways!
At the time we concluded that it's just how each person is made up, but since then I've developed an addendum - we can all learn how to beef up the areas we're not naturally proficient in.
