Several authors I can think of and one comedy blogger go publishing deals without asking. For the writer, who focus on SF, this turned into the publishing of multiple books. Question: Given that the material is good, what do you think would be the best blog to use? Example: blogspot, wordpress, etc Perhaps it would be best to get your own website and publish your stories there? What do you think. Marketing: How does one get the word out about a blog? Your Opinion: What's your overall opinion about this pathway to publishing?
