About the blog

If you are a reader looking for new ways to experience books (and tips how to do it) or a self-publisher trying to improve the way you write and promote books, you may find Password Incorrect interesting.

The blog’s niche is sharing tips and ideas on how technology could enhance reading and writing in digital times. In many cases it’s not as easy as it seems. It’s like typing a password. You think you know it and every time you have to type again, you’re less and less sure about it.

Let the author of this blog test all the wrong passwords so that you can eventually pick up the correct one.

New posts are published once or twice a week. If you want to keep up with what’s new, get free updates via RSS feed.
