Incredibly, a single blogger can attract a huge following. There is a blogger by the name of MaryMac who is a “mommy blogger” of major proportions — 10,000 followers proportions. She started blogging a few years ago about her crazy life, her marriage and motherhood. She has four kids.

She has a very biting sense of humor – an R bordering on X sense of humor – that caught on with lots of people.  All that attention opened doors and advanced her wished-for writing career. She became a popular speaker on using social media at writers conferences. Then she became a magazine editor.

And she still blogs.

About a year ago, I took a class from her at the Bay to Ocean Writers Conference. She and author Mindie Burgoyne, also a teacher at the conference, told me to start blogging in preparation for publishing my first novel. So here I am.
