Another day, another set of meetings

November 7th, 2008 • Kate

Jen asked on my post yesterday if I’d brought a camera on my trip to NYC, and though I have, I’m not toting it around during my meetings. Why? Because they all look like this — cups of coffee or tea or hot chocolate and conversation. There’s not all that much to see. Yes, sure, I do occasionally take meetings with editors in their offices, but think about where you spend most of your day, or what your work space looks lie — would you really want someone coming in and taking a picture of it to post on the internets? Maybe if I had a chance to clean beforehand, but that’s a lot to ask of a busy editor.
Anyway, I’ve been getting some interesting answers to Jen’s OTHER question, and I’ll look forward to sharing them when I’m back in the office. In the meantime, a poll: of my readers who have blogs or websites, what do you have? Your own domain, or do you use blogger, livejournal, typepad, or something else?

    I have a website and a blog. For the blog, I do use blogger as the interface, but I host on my own site.

  2. Linda Says:

    I have a blog with WordPress (for writing) and with Blogger (for quilting and tango).

  3. JenFW Says:

    Two domains: one for Web site, one for blog.

  4. jeanoram Says:

    My own domain for my website and then use WordPress within my site so people don’t ever have to leave my site. Well, maybe I’ll let them out so they can go Google me. 😉

    I have my own domain that’s pretty much just a cluttered dumping ground for links and pictures right now, and I blog on Blogspot. I would have hosted it myself, but I couldn’t get it to work.

    I have a blog with WordPress under Day By Day Writer and a web site for my line of children's travel books: http://www.sirnewtonbooks.com

  7. Julia Says:

    Right now I only have a blog (viabloomington on livejournal) – but, a website is in the works.

  8. Helene Boudreau Says:

    I have a WordPress web and blog combo linked to my domain name. Easy to find, really easy to use and modify, plus I think a web/blog combo does a better job of driving traffic to a site because of the updates rather than just a static site.
    *now I just have to come up with something interesting to say so that people will visit*
    🙂

    I use WordPress both as a blog and as a website. My LiveJournal is just for blogging, but has bonus Friends-Only entries.
    Have a lovely day! 🙂

  10. Joy Says:

    I use blogger to showcase my span of interests and writing abilities.

  11. beth Says:

    I use Blogger for my blog. I do not have a personal webpage yet, but absolutely plan to have one when published. In all honesty, I don't know of what I could do to put on my own webpage that would interest an agent–if you've ever checked out unpubbed writers' webpages, what impressed you? Do you think us unpubbed writers should bother?

  12. Kiersten Says:

    I use blogger. I’ll be building a website in a few weeks though, so I’m on the lookout for good hosting systems.

  13. Carrie Harris Says:

    Right now, it's Blogger all the way, because it was quick and easy to set up. A website will happen eventually, but I'd kind of like to have stuff to put on it. 🙂

    I'm on livejournal, but I actually blog on Blogger. I have a website I'm working on on .mac, but I'm not sure it's the best way to go, so I'm reevaluating.
