In addition to my personal review blog (Tenacious Reader), I've also launched a collaborative blog with some fellow reviewers. It focuses on new releases in fantasy, with some coverage of select Science Fiction and Horror books. We are trying to publish all of our reviews within 2 weeks of publication date, preferably pre-release. So, if you are interested in what's coming out, you can check us out here:

The Speculative Herald

We also have some giveaways coming up, and we publish weekly lists of what is releasing.

Thought I'd share my blog with people, if you like the look of it come and say hi. There is no real theme to it, I cover whatever is in my head on a given day. But regular themes are Fantasy Book Reviews, Travel Stuff, Obstacle Race Reviews, Author Q&As, General Gubbins etc..

My blog is mainly about fantasy but I also post about historical fiction as their's a strong link, I believe. I post book reviews and articles; eg Merlin versus Gandalf - was Tolkien influenced by Merlin. I also give writing tips for newbies.

Also try out my Fantasy Jokes page. It's a bit of fun and I've changed elephant jokes into troll jokes and posted genie, fairy and other jokes. Feel free to help me out and send me yours. I'd like to hit 1000 jokes.

Hi there,

1) What's your blog?
It's a long term diary / billboard where I talk about important things in my life that might be of interest to people other than myself.
2) What sort of stuff do you write about? (Your own short fiction, fantasy book reviews, SF book reviews, gender politics, photos of your garden, whatever...) The tag line is "opinions on writing, game design, and my life" although the game design portion only happens once every blue moon. I talk about my own projects as well as cool stuff like the Patrick Rothfuss signing events I've attended.
3) What's the URL? http://kaiherbertz.com/
4) Why'd you start blogging and/or what do you like best about it? I started in 2013, when I started to treat my writing as more than a hobby. The best thing is the diary function of the blog to remind me of awesome moments, since I have a bad memory.

All the best,

Kai

1) The Iron Teeth: a dark fantasy web serial
2) Well it's a web serial so I write periodic chapters for a online story set in a dark fantasy world. Every chapter is really the continuation of one long tale.
3) http://www.ironteethserial.com/
4) It's mostly a writing exercise so that I get in the habit of writing continuously and sticking to things. I also hope to get some feedback.

@Davidjb:

Here is my dwarf & elf joke:

Quote
Two dwarves are drinking at the bar. They challenge each other to a joke duel. Winner buys. The first wins with a single line: "An elf walks into a bar..." They had to get oxygen for the two dwarves.

You should sit in during my weekly poker game, so many terrible old man jokes during those games.  If I had any type of memory to remember jokes I could double what you have already.

It's surprising how well elephant jokes translate to troll jokes :) Good one.

I'm pretty jealous I didn't think of Davidjb's idea first.

Anyway, I has two blogs.

1) The first is imaginatively titled Pete Long's Blog. Oh noez, you now know my name.

The second is called Much Ado About Rucking and I think that's the greatest name for a rugby blog ever.

2) The first is about everything that interests me bar rugby, but mainly Fantasy and my own writing. Latest thing up there was a review of Eddings' Pawn of Prophecy. With lots of gifs and memes because nerds love gifs and memes.

The second is all about the rugby. I should probably fold it into the former but a) I post too much rugby stuff b) I will die on the barricades for that blog name.

3) http://peatlong.blogspot.co.uk/

http://muchadoaboutrucking.blogspot.co.uk/

4) I started blogging because I have a lot of opinions and my opinions are better than other people's. Also, I have a compulsion to write.

@Peat, I really enjoyed your review of Pawn. Back in the day, I enjoyed the heck out of that series, and probably would again. I grew tired of the rinse and repeat nature of further books. And some were downright awful. By the first series was a cheesy delight. My daughter frequently re-reads some of it in what we jokingly call the "good parts version", which means she searches for key bits of humor and drastically skims the rest.

Hmm. Too few farmboys/girls these days? Maybe I should address. ;)

I guess I have a typical author blog/site, set up fairly recently.

I probably should do more with it.
