Whew, what a couple of weeks it’s been! And the rest of the month won’t be any better. Next week, my inlaws arrive. On Easter, we start our week-long cruise through the islands. So much to do and so little time to get it done!

I’ve barely been able to keep up with my blog reading this week, and it’s driving me crazy. So if I usually visit you and haven’t been there commenting, it’s not on purpose. I’ve just been busy. I’m not dissing you! I swear I’m coming back, just as soon as life settles down to normal again. 🙂

One very interesting blog entry I read today is over at Running With Quills. Agent Steve Axelrod posts on Why (Smart) Agents Don’t Blog.

If your boss (or your client) is paying you to do something else—representing stars, representing writers or working in any other profession—they expect (demand, actually) that you put the interests of your firm or clients first. That means that, in addition to performing your professional activities, you exercise discretion about what you do and who you do it for.

And blogging, whether you do it anonymously or not, whether your intention is to provoke or merely inform, shows you’re not always putting your firm or your clients’ interests first.

Oh dear. Bound to be some discussion on that one. I have seen some of the most amazing things being said from time to time, though it’s usually authors who say it and not agents (in my experience, that is). I sometimes sit there with my mouth hanging open and think, “Did she just say that?”

But that’s what makes blogging fun!

Oh, I have some news, btw, but I’m not sharing it yet because it’s late and I’m tired and I want to do it justice. 🙂 Aloha.
