I'm a terrible blogger. I admit it. I started my blog a few years ago because all of my writing buddies had one and it seemed like a good idea at the time. While I love blogging as a format for interacting with other writers, I struggle coming up with posts. Occasionally I enjoy it, but it just as often feels awkward and unnatural. I've taken lots of very long blogging breaks, the most recent lasting almost a year!
Having a stagnant blog can't be a good idea, especially since it comes up ahead of my website in Google searches. I either need to start posting again or get rid of it entirely. Hence my dilemma.
At this point, all of my books are work-for-hire, so marketing isn't an issue. But I might have an agent and my "own" book someday, and a blog might come in handy. (And maybe even required by said agent or editor?)
I'm thinking my options include keeping the blog and posting to it every once in a while, just to keep it somewhat active. Or deleting it with the assumption that editors and agents are OK with writers not blogging anymore. (I am on Twitter, and though I also haven't tweeted in a long time, I'm more comfortable with Twitter's short-and-quick format. I'm not on Facebook.)
