Blogging as Hobby or Business?
As many of my regular readers are aware, I recently sent a manuscript out to betas and I've been thinking a lot about the next steps to take, both in my writing and in my attempts to build a platform and brand.

Three Years On…

Three weeks in. Or is it four? A Tale of ROW80.
So a few weeks have passed since the beginning of ROW80 although I've kind of lost track of how many exactly. As for my goals, they are progressing as predicted. The ones I knew I'd be able to meet, I've met and the ones I knew I'd struggle with I've so far ignored. Which is … Continue reading Three weeks in. Or is it four? A Tale of ROW80.
