Blog: The Miss Mae Site

Miss Mae’s blog is on Blogspot.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Miss Mae (MM): It is my author blog/site which showcases my books. Not only that but since I created my own covers, and create for other authors and for Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery, I use it as a vehicle for designing income. Plus, I love animals and dedicate a whole page to “Doggy Tales”, stories submitted by readers/pet owners.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for The Miss Mae Site?

MM: Since it’s to showcase my work, it was easy. 🙂

DCSME: How is The Miss Mae Site different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

MM: It’s quite personal, I think, as I designed my header banner and chose a background/theme to highlight the genre I write. (Romantic mystery) Think “it was a dark and stormy night…” type of atmosphere. 🙂

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

MM: I love the Doggy Tales feature as this draws in all kinds of unique readers. Hearing about the different stories of how we came to be pet owners is heartwarming and rewarding.

DCSME: How often do you update The Miss Mae Site?

MM: Doggy Tales is weekly, each Monday.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

MM: That Miss Mae also has a quirky, fun side as seen in my other two blogs! 🙂

Blogger: Jason Jack Miller

Blog: Jason Jack Miller

Jason Jack Miller’s blog is on Blogspot.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jason Jack Miller (JJM): I’m an independent author, so I blog about the things that are significant to my life as a writer and to the world of my novels—music and musicianship, Appalachian food and culture, writing and publishing.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Jason Jack Miller?

JJM: Because the master said, “Write what you know.”

DCSME: How is Jason Jack Miller different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JJM: I believe my blog is a bit more esoteric without the snobbery of other music and culture blogs. I like what I like and think there are others out there who will like it too.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JJM: The freedom to pursue my creative interests without the hindrance of editors and guidelines is the best part of blogging. No topic is off limit, and there’s never a deadline. This is writing for the sake of writing.

DCSME: How often do you update Jason Jack Miller?

JJM: Lately I’ve been pretty good at posting three or four times a week, even if it’s a small article or sharing a link. Sometimes I get waylaid by life, but that’s usually where my new material comes from.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JJM: Blogging is such a personal pursuit, sometimes it’s tough to keep yourself in check. Writing without feedback has the effect of making it seem like nobody’s reading, when in fact, anything you say can and will be used against you. It’s tough to remember that sometimes.

DCSME: How is FRIVOLOSITY different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

LM: It’s an authentic view of city living through my eyes. It’s not scripted or predictable. It’s a collection of those things important and unique to me but also captivating enough to capture the attention of most.

LM: Sharing my experiences and thoughts and connecting with other people and bloggers – love it!

DCSME: How often do you update FRIVOLOSITY?

LM: I update my blog as often as 3 to 4 times a week. I’m a busy girl in a city that offers so much to blog about that posting almost daily is sometimes the only way to keep up!

Blog: Street Literature

Vanessa Irvin Morris’s blog is on Blogspot.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Vanessa Irvin Morris (VIM): Tagline: A Black Librarian Pounds the Pavement to Bring You the Word on Street Lit || This is a blog where I explore the literary genre of Street Literature for educators (teachers and librarians)

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Street Literature?

VIM: I have been researching Street Literature for over 10 years. I am a librarian educator in higher ed. and before that I was a public librarian for a major city library system, in the hood. I’ve worked extensively with inner-city teens and their reading and research interests/needs. The popularity of Street Lit in public libraries for the past 10 years continues to be a phenomenon that needs to be explored, discussed, and understood.

DCSME: How is Street Literature different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

VIM: To my knowledge and research, there are no other blogs solely devoted to advocating for the literary genre of Street Literature.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

VIM: I like that I can share my questions and understandings with educators so that they can better serve their students and readers. I also appreciate having a forum where I can critically make connections between what happens in the world as we live, and how that relates to the language and power of the streets.

DCSME: How often do you update Street Literature?

VIM: I update my blog at least 3 times per month.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

VIM: Street Lit a.k.a. “urban fiction” is a literary genre that has been chagrined by many in the literary field and in education. My blog is an advocate for the merits of the genre and its readers. My stance is to not judge the book by its cover and to not judge the reader by his/her book.
