Freedom is Blogging in Your Underwear
By: Hugh MacLeod
Penguin Group, 2015
This is a unique book for writers about blogging. Writing is a wonderful career in which we could write in the comforts of our home office in our PJ’s or yes, even our underwear, if we wish.
Writers have freedom that most other professions don’t have. Each writer gets to discover what their freedom is for herself. This freedom can make the world better.
Having a blog is an important part of a writer’s life. Your life won’t be dependent on the approval of others. Also, through your blog, you can have direct contact with your audience and your audience can also have contact with you.
The internet gave writers great freedom, the freedom to find our own life. Used properly, our blog can help us gain contracts and get writing jobs. We can also inspire others to be their best through our blogs.
We each have this capacity to inspire others through our blog. We can share our knowledge, expertise and insights to the greater audience. So, the internet is central to get our work out there for everyone.
What I love about this book is the way it is written. Hugh MacLeod is a cartoonist and he brings he message to writers through his cartoons and his insights. He also has thorough introductions to each of the sections in his book.
This is a book every writer should read to appreciate the freedom that comes with being a writer.
