  • Embrace your blog, you own it

    There are a zillion blogs out there, and it may seem like your own, little independent blog will just get lost.

    So, the allure of writing for another site, perhaps for someone else perhaps more established than you, may seem to be the best way to go.

    It isn't. Unless they are paying you well for your work, don't, I repeat don't, write for someone else's site/blog. If you want to maintain your own voice, and have full control over your own content, create your own.

    The worst thing any blogger can do is to go write for another site, for no/minimal pay, and with no clear agreement over who controls the blog.

  • One Hundred Years of Solitude

    <

    p>"Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice."

    It is typical of Gabriel García Márquez that it will be many pages before his narrative circles back to the ice, and many chapters before the hero of One Hundred Years of Solitude, Buendía, stands before the firing squad.
