Why the domain name change?
Great question! I changed the name to make it more SEO searchable. Originally the name was lateshagoodman.wordpress.com. I’m not sure how many people were Googling that, so I changed it to make it more search friendly. I should add my blog used to be An Unconventional Publisher Confesses
What is there to confess?
Why not? I’ve never read a blog that details the publishing industry’s changes from a new pub’s point of view.(If you come across one please link it to mine). Secondly, I enjoy connecting with peers and blogging enables me to do that.
Can you really call yourself a publisher when you’re not in the industry?
In regard to my job status, you are correct. I’m not a traditional pub nor am I a self-published one. However, I am a graduate at The George Washington University. There I’m taking highly specialized courses, which are designed to equip me with the tools to take on managerial roles at publishing houses.
Do You Plan to be a Self-Pub or Traditional Pub?
Truthfully, my plan has changed over the course of this program. My suggestion to publishing graduates is developing backup plans. Publishing is a tough industry to break into, I’m often leveraging my acquired in other industries. So my advice to newbies is to create backup plans.
