A Fresh Start

Hiatus is coming to an end—and it's time for a fresh start.

Starting September 1st, I'll be back with regular—although not daily—posts. I'll post on Tuesdays and Thursdays for sure, and maybe more often as time permits. So start sending your questions now! (Remember to use the gmail address.)

I'll be starting the monthly sponsor/contests up again. Sorry about dropping the ball over the summer. I'll be contacting all of you who have previously signed up to see if you're still interested. (Sorry, again.)

I've finally joined the world of Facebook. Don't expect a lot of comments from me, but I've hooked it up to add my blog feed so if you're a friend, you'll see my posts that way. (Come Friend me!) Right now, I have the LDS Fiction site in the Notes feed. Anyone know how to add a second blog feed to FB?

I will be making a few other changes as well throughout next month. More about that later.

See you next week!

**P.S. Oh. My. Gosh! I just set up the FB account yesterday and sent friend requests to a few people who'd commented on the blog lately and I have 63 other friend requests! How did all you 63 people even find out I was on there??? I need to find me a book to explain how this FB stuff works!

Sounds like you got a very warm welcome to FB! :) Networked blogs will add our feed to FB. http://www.networkedblogs.com/ (I saw you on FB through the "People you may know" section on the sidebar.)

P.S. Did you get that I was talking about FB? :) I really need to reread what I write BEFORE I click, "publish."

LDS_Publisher said...

Yes. Thanks Rachael. I went to that site and set it up. I think I did it right. Will that make it automatically post to my wall? Or do I have to do something more?

Welcome back! I think consistency is more important than frequency these days with blogging so I applaud the reduced schedule. Posting 5 or more times a week is just too exhausting.

So when are you going to show up on Twitter. ;-P

LDS_Publisher said...

I am on Twitter.

I was happy to see you were on FB when Tristi Pinkston suggested I add you as an FB friend yesterday.

Susan said...

Not to be a pest, but are you still publishing the Book of Mormon short stories? My fingers are getting stiff from crossing them for so long.

So glad you're back!

Rebecca Irvine said...

Welcome back! I look forward to more of your advice and insights.

Wm Morris said...

Ah, right you are.

My bad -- it's just been so long since I've seen you as a regular presence there that I completely forgot. Well now with the FB page you've got both the major social media bases covered and can conquer the world!

Tanya Parker Mills said...

Welcome back. I'm actually considering a quasi-digital sabbatical in September (except for email and a once every other week posting to a group blog) so that I can really focus on my writing. So, I'll have to catch up with your posts in October. Thank goodness it's all archived!

Krista said...

This is good news! Looking forward to your posts.

Rachael Renee Anderson said...

On your your networked blogs homepage, part way down on the right, there's a link called, "syndication." Click on that and then the box under "auto publish to personal profile" and it should work fine. You can also add your twitter account there. Good luck!

Angie said...

Welcome back! I don't usually read blogs on Tues. and Thurs, but for you, I'll make an exception. (And I feel so lucky that I was your very first friend on FB!)

Maria Zannini said...

I just joined FB today and I am as lost as a goose. But I went and friended you.

--I was surprised I managed that much. LOL.

Michael Knudsen said...

A warm welcome back. I've missed the keen LDSP insights!

Jessica said...

I'm glad to have you back. LDSP is one of my favorite writing blogs--I always feel smarter after I finish reading it...
And congratulations on joining Facebook!
