I’m making up for this blog’s unintentional two-month silence with a few entries (which I’m working on right now!), along with a new weekly (well, hopefully) update called Snippets.
Snippets will contain links to interesting book-, reading- and publishing-related online articles and blogs, found via my RSS feed and social media (mainly Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). It’s similar to what Tom Chandler of The Copywriter Underground is doing with his Weekly Tweetfest, or the short recaps done by other book bloggers. 😉
Also, I was traveling for the past three weeks − which you’ll learn more about in future entries − and am still catching up with my online reading list, so the very first “edition” of Snippets has a lot of old news items. My bad.
