After nine months of Sunday blogs about widowhood, I’m changing my blogging schedule to once weekly on Thursday,  to free up time to finish my book, RECLAIMING JOY: A PRIMER FOR WIDOWS. I blogged every day the first two months, then cut back to three days a week for the remainder of 2015. However, my Sunday blogs never had the readership that weekday blogs have.

I started blogging because that is what a writer does when her book is ready to be submitted to prospective agents. Every writer is expected to have a website and a strong social media presence. Marketing is as important as writing in the publishing business. But I had a problem. Blogging and writing a book are two entirely different things, and the former–churning out 500 words a day on random subjects–comes much more naturally to me than writing in the long form. I still haven’t completed final revisions of my book.

After a break for surgery, I completed my series of Sunday blogs on “12 Keys to Reclaiming Joy” last week and will resume my blogs on a weekly basis beginning Thursday. First up is “13 Ways to Prepare for Widowhood.”

I’m sorry that it’s not a one-step process, but I’ve had more than 130,000 spam comments from hackers who bury links to the illegal sale of prescription meds in lengthy spam messages. This is the only way to control them. And, please, if you sign up and never receive a confirmation or notifications, email me. I have had a few glitches, but I think the problems have finally been resolved.

Thanks for reading!
