Last year I started doing Blogger Interviews. I’ve interviewed many awesome bloggers including Alex J Cavanaugh, Arlee Bird, and Sherry Ellis. For a full list go HERE. This month I decided to do something a little different and interview...MYSELF! :P
1. Tell us about Write with Fey.
I started blogging in 2012. There was no secret motive behind it. Why I started blogging is the same reason so many other writers started...we were told to. We heard many agents and publishers say that writers should be blogging and building their platforms well before they publish their first book. So, I caved and created Write with Fey. The first year I published 52 posts about how to write a novel from beginning to end. I had about 5 comments. Haha!
2, What was your very first blog post?
Catching a Spark was my first post. I reference this a lot whenever I talk about how I started writing since the full story is there.
3. How did you come up with your Writing About feature?
During my second year of blogging I wanted some way to get potential interested readers and to help writers at the same time. So I looked at the book I was writing at the time (the last book in my unpublished series) and created posts based on the types of scenes I wrote. The first one I ever did was “Writing About: A Kidnapping” which receives a lot of views. When I ran out of posts for that book, I looked at all of my published and unpublished stories. As of today I’ve published 64 of these posts.

4. Do you have anything new ideas for your blog this year?
Since I’m not doing A to Z this year (I know, I know. I’m sorry!), on the Wednesdays not devoted to IWSG, I will be doing my own form of A-Z devoted to my new series. This year I’ll be publishing book 2 in my Disaster Crimes series. Each Wednesday will be for a different topic related to my series from A-Z. There will be a lot of neat insights and teasers, so I hope you’ll all enjoy it. :)
5. What are the top 5 most-viewed posts on your blog?
6. What gave you the idea to interview bloggers?
I wanted to broaden my audience and honor the great bloggers I’ve gotten to know. Whenever I post a blogger Interview, I love to see comments from readers who thank me for introducing them to a new blogger. That’s a great feeling!
7. Share your number one tip to bloggers just starting out.
Take time to plan out what you want to do with your blog. Don’t just dive into blogging blindly. Make a plan, know how often you want to post, and what topics you will cover.
See: Blogging 101 for more tips.
1. Favorite time to post blogs?
7:00am Eastern for normal posts, 6:30am for IWSG
2. Blogger or Wordpress?
Blogger (Although I use Wordpress for my website.)
3. Do you host guests? YES!
4. Where are you when you’re blogging?
At my desk in the part of my bedroom that is my office.
QUESTION: Do you have any questions for me about my blog? I’d love to answer them! If I get enough, I might do a post later this month. :)
