My answer? Writers ultimately will have restrictions. A blog doesn’t. I don’t think it would confuse you if you pick a topic as a blogger that you don’t talk about as a writer. If anything, it gives you more perspective, more views to ponder on, and reach out to a more diverse audience.
The Christmas holidays gave me some time to reflect on writing and the flu, which are an oddly similar afflictions. One of thing that I kept circling back to was this question: Do we writers need to have blogs?
I started this blog back in 2011 to give out free writing advice, for what it’s worth. I then rebooted it last year to focus on writing science fiction or — as I call it at cocktail parties — sex scenes.
But seriously, even under the huge umbrella of science fiction, fantasy and horror, I don’t really have a focus. Just think about all the things I’m interested in:
- Science fiction
- College football
- Home improvement projects (I even do windows)
- Time travel
- The Civil War
- Creative writing
- Computer modeling
- Classic rock
- World War II
- Collecting books
- The Cold War
- Old school D&D
