New to blogging

This is all quite a new experience for me as I’ve never blogged anywhere before.  I suppose it is quite exiting seeing if there is anyone out there who reads what I’m writing.  What sort of things or topics do people write about???

When Research is hard

I’m trying to do some research for a novel I am writing and have tried to approach 3 people who I believe have information or stories that I could use.  Obviously I’ve already done a lot of the hard work identifying them in the first place but I’ve found that a couple of them either don’t believe (like I do) that they have anything useful to tell me or are unwilling to get involved.  Not quite sure how I persuade them otherwise!!!
