New Blogger on the Block

Remember when you first started your blog and didn’t know a single blogger? I sure do. It was a bit of a scary undertaking, not to mention a bit lonely as you wonder if anyone is ever going to read your posts. Every time I hit “Publish” I felt a bit nervous.

I don’t usually do this, maybe because I’ve never thought to do it, but allow me to direct your attention over to a new blog Steve Vernon just started today. Friday the 13th ? Oh yeah. Steve’s a writer of of horror and ghost stories, so Friday the 13th sounds like a good time for beginning a new blog, don’t you think?

Recently Steve has penned a young adult novel titled “Sinking Deeper: Or My Questionable (Possibly Heroic) Decision to Invent a Sea Monster ”

I’ve read it and it’s great!

So head on over to SteveVernonStoryTeller and say hi! I bet he’ll appreciate it, being new to the blogging world and all.

  1. I wandered over and said “Hi” to Steve, Laura…thanks for the heads-up!


  2. I also said Hello to Steve. I think it is great to promote other writers and their blogs. Thanks!

    • Super!! There seems to be a lot of writers out there helping to promote each other, and it’s a wonderful thing. There’s room in this business for all of us to shine! :)

  3. My first post 7/31/10 almost 2,000 comments now, so I visited and wished him well as so many people did for me.

    • The comments help us know that real people are out there reading our posts. Thanks a lot, Carl. I’m sure Steve appreciated it.

  4. When I first started blogging I wasn’t scared that nobody would read what I had written, I was scared that they would! When I saw I had my first comment I had butterflies in my stomach. What if this person didn’t like my post? What if they didn’t like me? Now I love getting comments :)

    • Glad you got over your fear of comments, Helen. Didn’t look at it as being a scary thing when I first started, but I can see where it could make one apprehensive.

  5. I’m heading there right now, Laura. Have a wonderful Saturday.

  6. How nice of you to sponsor a new blogger/writer. Blessings, Laura…

  7. No big deal really, Carol Ann. Just thought it would be fun to give Steve a shout out!

  8. Hey Laura. I’ve been on the go all weekend and just noticed this today. Thank you ma’m, I truly appreciate the shout-out.

    • No problem, Steve. We have a great writing community here in Nova Scotia that is always ready to lend a helping hand. You do your share as well.

      Okay, so I have to mention that you’re comment is (naturally) number 13. How fitting for a horror writer. Don’t you think?

  9. Hi Laura,

    As usual, I’m the cow’s tail – always behind. ;)
    I’m on my way to Steve’s blog now, but .. horror? um, that’s scary! and I don’t like scary, but maybe I will have to give his book a try. Think I can handle it?

    Thanks for the wonderful support you are to other writers and wannabe’s. Blessings.

    • Oh no, Lynn, Steve’s new book is YA and far from being horror although he does write both horror and ghost stories. I don’t think you’ll be frightened at all. Steve’s writing style is quite refreshing and the book is for young and old as YA books tends to be.
