Why every writer needs a blog


Sorry to resort to drastic measures such as commenting on your blog, but
I'm trying to follow up on a permissions request to reprint your piece "How I
Learned to Fly" in a coming-of-age anthology for The New Press. Both email
addresses I have for you were no good! Would you drop me a note and let me know
if you received my request letter, originally mailed to you July 20th?

The Perm Dude never would've tracked me down -- because I'm so rootless -- except by Googling my name and tracking down my blog. Thanks, Google and Blogger!
