DearAuthor at RWA National 2008

I’ll be blogging from RWA Nationals in San Francisco at the end of the month along with about 10 other bloggers. I’ve set up a special page here at Dear Author that will contain both substantive posts (hopefully with lots of pictures) and my tweets (the one liners that give you kind of a blow by blow experience). If WordPress comes up with an iPhone blogging platform, I might not tweet at all but just post directly to the site so the tweet portion of the site may be eliminated.

I put everything on a separate page so that those who don’t really care about RWA can ignore it and those that want to know all about can access the posts regularly.

Another new feature for this year’s RWA Nationals is a blog that we set up for all the bloggers called BlogNationals is a one stop reading place of sorts that will host all of the RWA related blog posts by the affiliate bloggers. Those are identified in the sidebar of the site.

The information on blognationals is collected from all the different sites so you’ll still see the RWA related blog posts here at DearAuthor or at Smart Bitches or any other site, but if you want to see them all together in one place, you can visit Sarah created our banner and all of the bloggers are contributing the content.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Hey good to see some non-techies on twitter. I will be following you there.
    I was wondering when twitter would break out & be more main stream. I am there because of the edu-techies.
