Q: Why have a “blog”? Isn’t that a bit “2003”?
A: Gee, Self, I’m not entirely sure. Publishers seem to think it’s a good idea and I, for one (and you can probably confirm this), was getting awfully tired of re-designing the website every time I wanted to convey the smallest piece of news to readers about my books, etc. But the whole thing still makes me feel a bit queasy/extremely late to the party. Additionally, I have always loathed the word “blog.” I also hate “okay” and “baffle.”
