    Should I mention blog/website in query?

    I have heard mixed reviews on this. If my website is relevant to children's literature, should I mention it in my query letter?
    My feelings is it shows I am actively writing and reading children's books.
    What is the general consensus?

    I tried to post the link to my website, but it won't let me.

    If you have thousands of readers, by all means mention it. If you don't, you can still mention it if you want, but don't expect it to add any brownie points to your query. Everybody and his mother-in-law has a blog these days.

    If publishing credits are scanty and/or uninspiring, don't mention them at all. Let your query demonstrate your literary chops.

    Good luck.

    You're still considered a junior member with only one post here, Trudy. Hence, WN won't allow you to put up a link. Once you're established and have proven yourself worthy, you should be able to. In the meantime, you might want to ask the mods in the Help forum what the current rules are for new members.
