Actually, that is the very first reason I ever began my blog, 4+ years ago! I was just finishing school (for writing, actually) and my instructor had suggested starting off with a book-blog that contained basically my stories. It was to begin short, and once a week, I would post “part 2” and so on.
Yea.. How I ended up running a product review and crochet blog beats me, but that’s the path it took so oh well! I ended up turning to non-fiction over the years, so I’ve not gotten into short stories in a very long time. That is what I started off doing, though.
