Anne R. Allen’s Blog: What Happens to Your Blog when You Die? Why You Need to Appoint a Social Media Executor NOW

reblogging I love following the blog of Anne R. Allen. Anne is an author, and a well-known blogger for sharing up-to-date tips and helpful articles for writers on what’s current in the publishing world.

 

I thought it was important to share this post because it raises a question about what happens to a writer’s works and social media platforms if they were to die? This is a subject nobody ever really wants to think or talk about, but if left without consideration, we’d be leaving a little unfinished business behind and quite possibly a whole heap of royalties, if we are published authors.

 

Click on Anne’s link below, and get a wealth of information to protect yourselves and your loved ones in the event our inevitable end should arise.

  1. Debby, I’ve seen this topic discussed on Facebook. Thanks for posting it here. Now I need to take action. Blog posts are intellectual property just like print media. My to-do list grows longer. Oh, vey!

    1. No kidding Marian. Like I said, we don’t like to think about these things but they are a fact. I’ve looked after a lot of it last year when hub and I updated our wills. Now one day I shall copy my password book legibly so that if something happens to me, my executor can at least get into my social media. Always work to do my friend. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Anne. I just had to share this. I had read about this topic a year ago on Joe Konrath’s page and began organizing my writing life slowly since then. It’s an important subject that most writers don’t necessarily think about, yet must. As you know I love your blog, and now so many of my readers are grateful for this article. Thank you. πŸ™‚
