Read this off Will R.’s post. How exciting!
Instead of waiting for a chance to meet an renowned author (which may never come) f2f just to ask 1 or 2 question, or in the case of answering one to one through email, the author is able to answer queries for all to see simply by posting the questions and answering them thru a blog and its commenting feature!
Take a look at the blog and I am sure you will also be attracted by the 144 comments to a post just like I do. Cant help being more and more excited after reading comments after comments 🙂
