I’ve been a bad blogger lately.
I started RaiseThemRighteous because I wanted my work about LGBTQ* #kidlit to reach an audience beyond academics. And, it has! I’ve only been blogging for a little over 3-months and I already have 800+ followers on WordPress and 750+ followers on Twitter. I love it! Because I’ve had such an amazing experience blogging and only recently started to blog, I feel bad about taking time off so soon.
I promise I have good excuses! I teach many many courses at a DFW area university: World Literature, Graphic Memoir, Digital Culture, Popular Culture, and Technical Writing – oh my! This is a challenging point in my semester and I need to be present for students.
I am also presenting my work at #NWSA2018. I arrived in Atlanta on Thursday and leave Sunday. While here I’m running two panels and meeting two publishers to discuss turning my work into a book manuscript. It’s all very exciting and exhausting.
And, then there are the #CybilAwards!
I always bite off a lot, bit it’s almost never more than I can chew! I am going to recommit to writing picture book reviews next week. And, I plan on beginning to write reviews for socially engaged Middle Grade and Young Adult Literature beginning January 1!
I love this blog and all the support I’ve received from authors, bloggers, parents, and readers.
Keep following me and I promise to stop disappointing you soon!
