It's been a year since we've had a new thread, and it doesn't seem like a bad idea to clean out my Reader again.  So, who's still blogging?

Author Name: Y.R. Jones

Blog Name: Think Positive, Think Write
Post Frequency: It *should* be 1-2x/wk, but life happened, putting me way off schedule.
Intended Audience: Readers and writers
Topic summary: I conduct author interviews, write about my WIPs, all things writing really...always in a positive light, of course. I plan to dedicate one day of the week to a special topic, but I haven't decided what yet (i.e. Feature Friday where I feature a book or an author who has good news to share, or Wacky Wednesday where I share the latest crazy thing that happened to me while on my writing/get published journey [and they happen A LOT]).

Author Name: Michael Cahill


Blog Name: Legend Trippers: Screaming is Believing


Post Frequency: Twice a week.


Intended Audience: Anyone with even a passing interest in the paranormal - ghosts, aliens, unknown creatures, conspiracies, the list is endless.


Topic Summary: The blog is partly a showcase for my upcoming YA series called Legend Trippers, about a group of paranormal-obsessed teenagers who start an after school dedicated to investigating unexplained phenomena. While not pugging my own work, I take a look at fascinating real-life accounts of the bizarre and mysterious. So far I've touched upon the Loch Ness Monster, the Ata Humanoid, and the Wow! Signal. Up next is the infamous war against cold fusion and the lingering hostilities towards a potentially revolutionary science.

Author Name:  Aaron Bradford Starr

Blog Name:  Imaginary Friend
Post Frequency:  About twice a month
Intended Audience:  Fans of my published fiction or art, people interested in some of the details of board game and puzzle design.
Topic summary:  It's somewhat eclectic.​  Often I'll muse about the details behind the inception or creation of a given story, or the details behind creating a given painting or drawing that has recently appeared in print.  I also do a bit of light film reviewing, in the form of my I The Jury posts.  These show that I can hunt snark, too.

Hi guys. I started my blog in 2006. Reading all of this stuff and seeing the importance of blogging I'm dusting it off and blogging again. I didn't blog at all in 2015 but I just made another post now in February 2016.


Blog Name: Neon and Concrete

Post Frequency: Used to be a lot, rarely now. Now it's a few times a year.
Intended Audience: Writers, friends, family, writing colleagues, anyone who wants to Internet stalk me.
Topic summary: I talk about what's been going on in my life and writing career. As the blog starts in 2006 when I hadn't yet published my first book it covers a lot of territory.
