Author Blogging: You're doing it write, but John Locke's figured it out. So I don't know how many writers actually follow this blog (blush, sigh, show yourselves!) but since last Friday I linked to a blog post I liked about how NOT to do an author blog, I just had to share the follow up post on how to do it right (according to some, with the note that I believe there is no one right way).
