I had my Jerry Maguire moment
(and yes, I know that didn’t go well for him in the short-term).
What are you trying to achieve with your blog?
Is it a blog or a blahg?
My mission at ChazzWrites.com is:
1? To inform readers of this blog about self-publishing, to the point where we and others think of self-publishers simply as publishers.
2? To make you chuckle here and there as you read so you’ll keep reading. (Failing that, we’ll murder a mime, which is always good for a chuckle.)
3? To raise all indie author boats, I promote fellow authors and spread the word about their books, their links and their awesomeness.
4? To swell the how-to tide of practical knowledge about writing, marketing, and promotion for success in independent publishing.
5? To bring the obscure but deserving into the light so they may be found by a happy readership. (Yes, damn right I’m obscure but deserving, too!)
You ask yourself: Why the question marks after the five points of the mission statement? Is that a strangely persistent typo? No. I did that because Number 1 is not always going to be Priority 1. Sometimes I just provide an informative link and shoo you away elsewhere to gulp down factoids, nuggets and precious how-to wisdom. Sometimes I want you to curl up closer to my fire and feel the warmth of my heated rants. Often, I try to combine these five elements in one post. Sometimes I’ll just kill a mime for the heck of it.
The only thing that’s continuous through every blog post is this:
I try to do what Spike Lee requires of all of us in the movie Do the Right Thing.
I try to do the right thing.
