Humor – For all Twitter Fans!

I love Twitter, but Kanye West takes it to new heights, and Josh Groban embellishes it farther with music!

Some late night humor from Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Introducing “Inside the Author’s Mind”

Part of what is important for a writer is connecting with other writers. For someone like me who is an introvert by nature, social networking via blogs, Facebook and Twitter is an amazing tool. While frequenting forums and joining writers’ groups, I have met other authors in varying stages of their careers—some published, some pre-published, and others multi-published. Regardless of where they are, the community is overwhelmingly supportive of each other in our endeavors to become better writers.

The aim is to write well and to sell, to get our books into the marketplace to as many readers as possible. To this end, I would like to do my part in supporting other writers. I am introducing a new segment to my blog called “Inside the Author’s Mind.” This feature will showcase erotica/romance authors whom I think you would enjoy learning more about.

Each post will provide a brief description of the author and/or book, and the interview will be conducted similar to a Proust/Pivot questionnaire. I will choose the questions, and they will remain the same for each interview. How often this post appears on my blog will depend on authors’ availability, but my plan is to run it at least twice a month, and it will be posted on a Friday.

I hope you will enjoy this new segment as an opportunity to discover new authors and what goes on in their heads.

Stay sexy,

Eden

Persistence is key, but I’m a MAC user!

What the hell ! Okay, so…I’m still sitting here. It’s several hours later from the last post, or at least it feels that way. My legs are numb from sitting in the lotus position, my glasses foggy from frustration, and this is the second time I am typing this entry. Why? Because I pressed some weird link and my 350+ word post disappeared in front of my eyes. I cried.

What has happened in the past few hours? First, I’ve composed myself—somewhat, and I will try hard to recreate what I wrote. What worked?

I no longer have my posts going on the HOME page – good.

I have my posts going to a newly-created BLOG page – good.

I have a few widgets on the right sidebar – very good.

What is still not working?

I can’t upload music or pictures … yet. I tried once but it didn’t work.

I can’t change the order of my menu tabs, even after reading the tutorial three times. This is definitely something I must leave for tomorrow.

I can’t share my posts on my BLOG page via email, Facebook, or Twitter, although, I must admit I wonder who would read this mad rant and want to share it. Funny, I have these “share” widgets on every other page where there is no content.

Though I know persistence is key, I think I have been a MAC user for much too long. What do I mean by this? I expect things to work in a much more intuitive way. With the touch screen ease of Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and most of its iPods now, I have become spoiled by the seamless ease with which the applications work together. I almost feel like I have to put on my “PC” hat to build this blog site —that’s personal computer and not politically correct, in case you’re wondering.

Whatever it is, I’m finding the “drag and drop” functionality nice, but inconsistent, and I ain’t getting it too fast, no I’m not.

I’m tired, but feeling slightly better for having at least posted two items today.

Stay sexy,

Eden
