What's the best part of being a Shakespeare blogger?
Our Oberon Shakespeare Study Group has been meeting for over a decade in southeast Michigan and we have been blogging since 2007 using Blogspot.com. The blog allows our members to communicate quickly and easily about group, local, and national events of interest to Shakespeare enthusiasts. We use Blurb to slurp our blog into print, giving us an easy way to chronicle our group's history.
What's the hardest part of being a Shakespeare blogger?
There is nothing hard about being a blogger. The most difficult thing is letting people know how easy it is to blog and getting them to realize that their experience can be useful to readers. Many people seem to feel that blogging is defined as a form of personal expression; but really a blog is only a very cheap and easy method of getting information on the Internet.
