The topic of today's post is: What is your favorite part of blogging?
This came to me the other day as I was researching the rest of this month's 'Today in Literary History' blurbs. I have explained before how important those are to me, as I feel the writers of the past laid foundation from which we all now work. But this month the snippets of history have been sucking me in. I can't just go to History.com, copy my ten words and be done. This month I want to read the backstory. So you say Dylan Thomas died of drink? Well, let me research that some more...and I'm off, clicking away and learning.
And this brings us to my favorite part of blogging: learning.
I have learned about writing--tons about writing! I have learned about grammar from the great Crystal Clear Proofing. I have delved deeper into new genres, ones that, before, I might have skipped right over in the bookstore--SciFi, Steampunk, Urban Fantasy, and, yes, Romance. I have learned how to change HTML code. Whoa. I know.
What is your favorite part of blogging?
