Why do I blog? At first, I started this blog because everything I read told me to. You want to be published? Great. You need to be on the internet. So I started the English Badass. Check. Give me a gold star.
Wait? Having a blog isn't enough?

This shouldn't have been some sort of big revelation to me. In fact, early on I knew I needed something to differentiate myself, but I didn't know how to do it. How, you ask, did I know this? I get paid to use social media. It's a part of my job.
You don't just start a blog. Well, people do. I did. But that's not how you find success. You need objectives, goals, and content that marries up to those goals.
So you'll start to see a few changes around here. It will be similar to past content: writing, grammar, book reviews, etc. But there will be a little more structure to it, including the new feature: Social Media Mondays. I have a lot of social media knowledge just hanging out in my head, and I'd like to share it.
Why do my thoughts on social media matter? Because I get paid to be there. I write an award-winning blog for the building products industry. So I'm going to share my expertise and tie it to YA writers.
I'll be including a few other features:
- RWT (Road Trip Wednesdays)
- Friday Reads (where I will recommend books, share my reading lists, or post book reviews)
- Miscellaneous content as appropriate/relevant
