It has become almost mandatory for writers to have blogs these days. I started my first blog, “Looking At Life,” when I wanted to capture observations and thoughts from my schooldays at The Lawrence School, Lovedale. Later I started “People At Work & Play” my “professional” blog which spoke of careers, people management and the like. Now that I am retired and am full time into writing, I have a writing blog, which is what you are reading. If you are a writer wanting to start a blog or an aspiring writer, here are some tips from an expert. Jane Friedman gives you her tips on starting a blog for writers.
