“Not all who wander are lost.” That is one of my favorite quotes of all time, but alas, it isn’t me. I am wandering and completely lost. I have been told by many wonderful, creative people that I should blog. I suppose it is an amazing way to convey my true self to potential agents. After all, every agent I have contacted with my work has asked if I have a blog or have a website. When I cheerfully answered in the negative, it made me feel like that kid that couldn’t spell the first word in the spelling bee. Lots of sympathetic looks my way, but that buzzer still ran me off the stage.
So here I am the wandering author in search of the best I can do to build a blog, a readership, and a career. I feel like a five-year-old on their first day of school or a hobbit climbing up a mountain. I am determined that if this is what I am supposed to do, then this is what I’ll do no matter how foreign. So like Tolkien’s little wandering dudes, I shall trudge ahead on my less-hairy feet to the goal at the end of my journey- publication. Until then, I shall remain your sincere wandering Bimbo Bloggins.
