Welcome to my blog. My hobby (some would say folly!) is to publish children’s books, purely for fun. I do this in collaboration with like-minded individuals.
This is my blog. It will contain posts about my micropublishing antics (especially when I have something to say about the process of publishing on a small scale) and also my thoughts on all kinds of children’s books. And rants. There’ll be rants about things that bug me. If you want a quick overview of the project, then please see the Falcon Berger homepage.
I won’t pretend this is my first attempt at a blog. I’ve had a few before, but all were abortive. I think I’ve learned two key lessons that will help me sustain this one.
Lesson one is pace. Previously, I was a furious and insatiable blogger, smashing out one huge post a day until I crashed and burned with blog fatigue. When I reached that point, I would delete the whole thing. I’m going to aim to update this blog at a more leisurely rate. When I do have a flurry of writing, then unless it’s about something very current, I will schedule the posts to appear over time, rather than setting a precedent of daily updates that I can’t sustain.
Lesson two is humility. A blog doesn’t have to consist of inspirational, impeccably edited essays. It can have a note of spontaneity about it. I’m not saying I’ll post rubbish, but neither will I try to be Noam Chomsky.
Anyway, that’s all for my inaugural post. I’ll soon write my first proper one, then settle into a rhythm. I hope you enjoy it!
