For those interested, Wow! Women On Writing interviewed me for their April issue. Also, I was invited to be a guest blogger at DesignSessions: Notes On Design; my posts: Digital Illustration, Online cartooning,
Flickr and Illustrators, and Protecting Your Online Images.

The Scream

Blogging isn't for everyone, but I've certainly found that it's helped me in my writing and illustrating; many of my paying assignments during the past couple of years have come about because of my blogs. I've made writer friends and also have done some useful business networking through the blogosphere as well as learning more about the craft and business of writing through certain blogs.

The joy of deadlines

My blog-reading habits have changed. I used to mainly read personal blogs, but now I find that there are just so many. My creative work time is precious to me, so although I do keep track of my favourite personal blogs through a feed reader, I focus on blogs which are work-related as well as blogs that inspire me, either personally or my craft.


A while back I posted an entry called Why I Blog.

This week's survey: Why do YOU read blogs?
