The above title line is a fanciful way of telling people my favorite piece of blogging advice. Ever since I shut down Debuts & Reviews, I have been lost and directionless. You could probably tell. I need to take my own advice. I need something to focus on, or a niche. My niche should not alienate my old readers (those of you who are left–kisses!), nor should it turn off my new ones. And it sure fit the brand that I am building here.
Therefore, over the next month or so, I will be transitioning to a legend-centric blog. I will focus on retold legends, fairy tales, epic fantasies and alternate histories, both fantastical and otherwise. I don’t expect to do a lot of reviews, but I won’t rule them out either. I still will not take review copies–I simply cannot accept the commitment that goes with them at this time. I will mostly focus on stories for adults, with the occasional older YA novel. I expect to post 3 times a week, with one guest a week.
I’m still looking for a name. I thought about using something with “legends” in it, because that leaves room for lots of stuff, and doesn’t focus in too sharply on something like fairy tales that would result in repetitive content. I came across the word “fabulist” and I thought it was cool, but I can’t think of any way to use it that doesn’t sound arrogant. Suggestions welcome.
Sorry for this bit of a blog identity crisis, and thanks for staying with me!
