I have a blog. For real. I mean it this time.

Welcome to my blog! I am glad you stopped by and want you to know that this will not, not, NOT be anything like my previous attempts at blogging. Like, say, Stupid Blog Name, where my friend Michael Grant got together a bunch of authors and editors and bloggers to talk about writing and publishing. It was a great crowd, we attracted some dedicated followers, the blog posts were smart and snappy (at least we thought so), and, and … wait! Were we supposed to keep contributing? Like after the first few months, after  the initial excitement had faded? Whoops.

Next I created my own author blog. I can’t find it. I can’t even remember what it was called, though I think the subtitle was “the official blog of author Carol Snow.” (Why, yes, I AM good with words!)

A year ago I tried a new direction and created a blog called Foods I Can’t Pronounce. After three time-consuming posts, guess how many followers I attracted? ZERO! Okay, truth:  I thought I should get a bunch of posts up before for making any official announcement … but I never got a bunch of posts up. It was fun to design, though. It took me like an hour to find the perfect background image.

So here we are again. Well – here I am again, anyway.  Blogging. For real this time. You know what’s going to keep me to a schedule?  Having a schedule. Here it is:

MONDAY: Song of the week

TUESDAY: If it’s Tuesday, this must be …

FRIDAY: Chow, Bella

SATURDAY: My Life in Words

Does that make sense? No, of course not. But if you check back now and then, I promise it will.


Welcome to the newly designed, just in time to let you know about my upcoming book, What Came First. Have a look around and check back often, as I will be updating this space a lot. Enjoy the new look!
