I got my first blog interview here: http://pebbleinthestillwaters.blogspot.com/2014/02/author-interview-jennifer-reinoehl-life.html. I've talked about the importance of social networking before for authors of any kind. This was a big step for me. I enjoyed the whole process. The questions were very thought provoking and interesting. This particular blogger is always interviewing new authors, so if you like to read, it is a good blog to visit.
Interviews are important for anyone who wants to write. It opens you up to new audiences and allows you to share a little of yourself with others.
