Saturday Snippets: Around Blog World

Happy Saturday! A couple of snippets from our week.


On Wednesday, February 29, I was interviewed on AuthoPublisher. Please pop over and leave a comment: Up Close and Personal with Tia Silverthorne Bach.

A highlight:

How do you handle negative feedback from critics?
I am an avid reader and have been a dedicated book club member for over ten years. Rarely does my book club agree on a book. It’s a nice reminder that people like different things. If you set out to write a book everyone will like, odds are you’ll write a book few will like. “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” Bill Cosby


Yesterday, our blog was featured as the Editor's Pick of the Day on Bloggers.

Tia Bach - Find me on

From their site: is dedicates site for Blog Authors. Blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is Web site with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. categorizes and highlights Blog Authors' profiles by their interest and contribution - for example some Bloggers publish commentary or news on a particular subject; others maintain blog for personal online diaries. In this site we encourage Bloggers to tell about themselves, share own pictures, share their blog links. We encourage authors of any type of blogs including Textual, art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketches (sketchblog), videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting), which are part of a wider network of social media. They can also discuss on Micro-blogging sites, another type of blogging, one which consists of blogs with very short posts.

We envision this site like a big cafe where authors can meet each other, send private message and invite friends and relatives.


Have a lovely weekend!

A conference near Washington DC? Try for one when you live in Alaska, can't drive in strange places, and walk with a cane.

Sue Ann, Feeling for you, definitely some obstacles to finding a good conference.

I know there are some great ones around here, but I've only lived in this area a year (moved here from CO), so I'm just not familiar.

And I'm terrified of traffic, so DC is a bit off-putting.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find that perfect conference (or a great online one!).
