I have written this first blog post several times over the last two years, each and every time I tried to create an author's website. I typically make wild promises to post weekly, I think I even wrote that I would post daily once.
In one "first post" I vowed to make this a go to location for new independent authors in search of answers to all their questions. How do you publish, what should you spend money on, what other advice do I have for a new author?
The issue is, I'm not a blogger, at least, not yet. I'm not 100% comfortable putting my musing out on the internet. All of the glorious promises I made in those other posts were falsehoods. I have to warm up to this whole idea of self promoting, and I'll get there. I have to, it's part of the job I've chosen.
Until I attain that ability, this is my first post and the promises I am comfortable making. I will try to blog with some sort of regularity, I will try to be witty and informative in the process, and I will write about topics relevant to self publishing or writing.
There you go, that's it, here is my first post...
Thank you for reading, and welcome to bradleymanuel.com.
