The answer she gave made a lot of sense to me, so here I am. I am excited about this new experiment, but it did give rise to an interesting discussion with my husband. His theory is that I should write and post on this blog for several weeks so there is quite a bit of content and then I should start to tell everyone that I know about it. My theory is that I should write for a day or two, then start to tell my family and writer friends to start looking it up. It seems to me that a large part of blogging is reader response. So having several weeks of writing without any comments would feel rather discouraging.
So I guess the question is, if I write it will they come? Does the blog come first and then people come to see what is being said? Or do the people who already support and cheer for me come check it out anyway and watch the blog grow with me? The chicken or the egg?
