I like to look at my stats each day. Not so much to see how many visitors I have but to see where they’re coming from. It’s one way I discover new blogs, but the search terms, as we all know, can be amusing as well. I get a combination of hits for authors/books I’ve chatted up here, as well as hits for recipes I’ve posted and then, of course, the weird combination of perverted search terms. But what still boggles my mind is when people are actually searching for me. I get several hits a day where people are Googling my name or the blog name. I don’t really feel like someone people should be interested in Googling because I’m just ME. Really, no one interesting. Well, my husband says he thinks I’m interesting but, you know that’s because he wants to see me without clothes on 😉
There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.
However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!
Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.
