I do, I do!
And so do you, if you hope to succeed as a writer. Renowned gurus Mark Dawson, Derek Murphy, and Joanna Penn (among others) tout the necessity (!) of having one.

Given the weekends are the only times I can work on “technical” components, it’s been three weeks now that I’ve tried to get a mailing list organized. Every time I follow a couple of steps, it seems there are six more to perform . . . and a-Googlin’ I go.
