In just over a month, the blog will close down unless there is either an increase in readers or sales and I cannot foresee either. Whereas some would see the blog getting a daily read of 200+ as a great example of how well I entertain the readers.
In the beginning I did enjoy writing and giving as I thought it might help move a few books, but over the year I cane to realise how foolish an idea that was.
One major fact which has brought me to this decision is that despite the vast numbers of readers, there has been no sales and I am running out of funds to please the readers; if you are reading the blogs, you will know I have an Amazon page and from the New Year any new books will appear there.
The idea of the blog was to try and help sales, a thing it has failed to do and as for losing coverage-to me it is of no consequence-you have shown me, all you want is a free read and there are plenty of sites which can do that.
M. Proust was a man of many letters and for that I am grateful as his new biography is most enlightening, it depicts a time of great happenings in French history and it is interesting to read how this affected the country from somebody who was alive at the time. From the Dreyfus Affair to the split from the church, this book is to be commended highly as a great social study.
Unlike Marcel, although I write a few blogs a day-the modern equivalent of his letters-I have no desire to bore you with every trivial happening in my life.
Most of my time is devoted to either writing, reading the biography or going to hospital appointments these days, and I have the perpetual worry that a new committee will deem it fit to cut my disability benefits.
