I couldn't agree more and RSS is the proverbial icing on the cake.

Maryanne, I'm so glad you posted this. I cannot tell you how much mileage I've gotten since starting my blog in June!

All of a sudden, my postings are showing up high on search engines; I'm meeting people with whom I'm doing collaborative ventures; I'm meeting all kinds of experts to work with; it's been a great way to make contact with journalists covering my field; etc., etc.

But I'd like you writers out there to note that I set up my blog AFTER writing my book.

Frankly, I think it can be quite overwhelming to finish a book and keep a blog at the same time. There's just NO WAY I ever could have gotten my book finished while launching my blog!

But now that my book is completed, I have more time to build my blog. In fact, I started the blog, based upon advice I received at a conference -- that a blog is a great way to build your platform.

It's truly an amazing way to obtain exposure you wouldn't otherwise get.

It's just so fun to make connections because of your blog. In fact, I "met" Yvonne back in July because of something I posted on my blog about her.

Anyhow, for authors, blogging is absolutely an awesome tool to get the word out about your work and mission, etc.

Good luck to you, fellow authors!
