Is it a good idea to keep a blog? I am thinking of starting one to help with my MC development. I want to use it as an online diary for her. It will run in real time with the dates as my story's fictional start date is May 2012. I'm hoping at least a few people may read it and start to get interested in her as a character. I hope it will persuade them to read my novel to see what happens to her next. What do you think?
