    If you blog in an empty forest, will anyone hear you?

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | June 19, 2007

    (I wrote this post two nights ago and I guess it’s now irrelevant. I feel like this blog is like a baby born prematurely — you have to work a bit harder a bit earlier than expected, but it will all be okay in the end):

     I set up this web site a few days ago just to see what this whole blogging thing would work with a book. Right now, until we get a fortune cookie header up there, I am switching between boats and tomatoes and puppies and whatever other designs amuse me.  Essentially no one knows that I am blogging right now. This url has not been submitted to any search engine. No one except my friends and the people at Warner/Hachette Book Group/Grand Central Publishing/Whatever one prefers to call it, know my book is even called The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, so no one is going to type it into their address bar. So am I just blogging into oblivion? If no one reads anything you  write, are you still a writer? Or am I blogging for an imaginary audience who one day may read this entry? This is getting too meta for me. I must sleep.
