Why, oh why, do I do this to myself?

I started my blog on WordPress back in February of 2014, but I found it too complicated, so I went to Blogspot.  I do like them, but I have received very few followers and their stats are so inflated.  I have kept this blog active, to some degree, by re-blogging fellow WordPress posts.  A feature that I really love.  Since I’ve been doing that, I’ve actually accumulated a few followers, which got me to thinking.  I need to move my blog over to here.  All this amounts to is a huge project to move my prior posts over here, which I will be doing over the next several months.  Okay, no big deal.  I just updated my blog on Blogger, I’ll just take it one step at a time.

But no, I can’t make it easier on myself.  My brain, which never sleeps, decided I needed to RENAME my blog, and come up with a new header.  Is this just a form of procrastination?  I should be writing, not coming up with new projects.  And why am I working on this post, instead of working on my new blog title and post?  Should I even change my blog title?  It’s enough to make me bonkers.  Do you have the same problem?  I sure hope not.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down.

About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done.

So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made.

One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors.

Anyway, enough about me. Here’s all my contact information:
