Hi everyone, I haven't been on here in a very long time and I just wanted to ask a question - so I hope I am not going over ground that has already been covered (over and over again?). I have recently started a blog that I use to share some of my short stories with friends (just for fun - to get feedback etc). I have been considering putting parts of my novels on there to share. - Just a chapter here and there. It is a public blog - accessible to anyone. My question is - if in the hypothetical long-term future, I actually finish any of these novels and try to sell them to an agent/publisher, would the parts on the blog be considered 'published' and could a publisher turn the novel down on the basis that it has been previously partially published? Or is that just a really stupid question?
