SIGNATURES! Folks, sign your dadgum name.
But this ain't a randy site, and it isn't some place you go to be ANONYMOUS!
You're posting on blogger to become KNOWN. To generate a crit group, to meet your fellow writers, agents, publishers. To NETWORK! To improve and grow. To discuss and discern and share.
Right? I am right, aren't I? I mean, I'm just guessing since the blogs I'm tagging are for writers who want to get their names out there.
So lemme let you in on a little secret, folks: Sign your dadgum name!
Wow. Prophetic, I know, freaking genius if you ask me, which nobody asks. So here I am, waving my cowboy hat and humping the elephant's leg, the one in the room that NOBODY NOTICED!
Look, when I post, I always have a signature at the end, don't I?
Why oh why would I do that? That's a lot of extra typing, I know, but I do it every time on every site, including facebook. I even post my pseudonym when I'm surfing with my mask on.
People on those sites know me as Saul. Saul Goode, to be exact. Don't google that, you won't like what you find. Saul's been kicked off a few sites, let's leave that yellow snowball on the ground, shall we.
Point is, folks, sign your name on your posts. ALL OF THEM.
Sign on your blog.
Sign on your comments.
Sign sign SIGN SIGN SIGN!
Otherwise you're a no-namer, and we only know you as your blog title.
Now watch me:
