  1. Shared! Why? Because it’s that important.

  2. I have been trying to eradicate the word sparkle for years. Finally, a true professional is addressing this issue.

  3. Damn, you just killed my whole book. It was going to be Sparkly Vampires living in a Post-Apocolypic, humid world where they sit around singing Rush songs, not caring less. 😉

  4. Great post as always. You might not know this, but you are quite funny, Benjamin :)

    In all seriousness now – do you find making blog videos more fun/easier/better than traditional blogging? Do you think it makes you more approachable as a writer than if you would just write a post?

    Thanks for responding to any of the questions

    Keep up the good work

    • Thank you, Stanislava.

      They are getting easier and quicker than typing out a post. They are a little nerve racking. I’ve always been camera shy. As a professional author, I figured that was something I had to overcome. But, I am starting to have fun. The most obvious benefit of video vs typed posts is fewer typos.

      Molly Greene has invited me to do a post on making videos back at her blog in the near future and I’ll be able to go into more detail there.
