Editor's Note image

This Month's Editor: Wordsmitty ✍️

Gettings ghosts, ghouls and bloggers. Tis the month for scary things and candy! *LAUGH*  Hopefully, this falls into the latter but not as sticky.

This month's Feature is about ghost writers. Unfortunately, the spirits were all too busy this time of year, *Facepalm*  So I had to fill in - sort of ghosting for ghosts (which sounds like a soul raiser). *Headbang*

If you're not so scared this Halloween by the upcoming NaNo, please check out the Editor's Picks and the new bloggers and blogs listed below. Remember that Santa is watching to see who is a good commenter and reviewer, and may be trick or treating to you in a couple months. *Wink*

Keep on Bloggin'!


Featured Topic image

*GHOST* Ghost Bloggers *GHOST*

by Wordsmitty ✍️

Blogs are generally personal things like a diary/journal or opinions. Entries reveal aspects of the blogger - life, attitude, friends, biases, etc. They are history, plans and dreams. Some might discuss events or specific topics, but they still come out from the core of the blogger.

So why would you ever use a ghost blogger?

Ghost writers are fairly common - someone who agrees to assemble words that will be presented under someone elses name. Perhaps it is their creation, but often it is to a specific format, characters and plot. Consider it like fan-fiction that is directed and agreed by the original author or copyright holder where the fan doesn't get his or her name on it.

But ghost blogging?

Perhaps you've made entries claiming you were your muse. That's close, although it's probably still your own style unless you've purposely tried to do otherwise and create another persona. However, it's still you if just another you of sorts.

Consider professional blogs that stick to a specific topic or area and give facts or a review on something. The blog overall could be a combination from people who research, test, voice opinions, explain, etc. It runs constantly, maybe daily. At some point, the author may need a break but wants to keep it going, or the author passes and the company that publishes it wants it to continue. They have someone else write. Or the author could even move his/herself up to publisher or editor and just have writers piece it together for approval under his or her name.

Now it is doubtful that a personal blog would have a ghost writer, although someone could be incapacitated and another still make journal like entries. It might even be fun to have someone else write your blog or even you write theirs. Do I see a contest in the future? *THINK*

Could anyone notice? That would be the whole idea so that no one does. It could also be an expansion of your writing to imitate someone so exactly. You might even discover a few things that would help you with your own style. What good is being a ghost if they know who you are or you don't have some scary secret that might shock readers. *Jackolantern*
