Hey everyone, I have been on here two weeks and I’m still not sure how to get this going so I thought why not start here. How does one blog? I find that blogging is anything you do as a writer/author to help promote yourself and to spread the good word to others, with feedback much appreciated. I myself have gotten little feedback in blogging but then again I am fairly new to the whole thing so maybe its just me. I say people see this they check it out, they read and then they give a comment, check out my profile, go over and just give advice and just go nuts, blog it up cause afterall we all have to start somewhere and for me im starting here. Blog however you wish, give advice, comments, tell how you blog just a little note on here and what works for you and what easy ideas one could give that has worked for you.
Still not feeling me? Well let me enlighten you on this about me, I have a website that gets very little hits, a published book thats hardly selling and promotional ideas that arent going anywhere and I cannot do much with because I have a really bad publishing company but do I let all this get me down? Clearly not since im still sitting here at my computer on this site writing to you all now. You gotta take it all and not think on it, this is what I have come to do because I know in the end I will get all the things I am looking for and I will see promise at some point, thinking negative doesnt move things forward and to me I shall keep on doing what I am doing to the best of my ability until I find that one opportunity and seize it for all its worth. Remember, you give back I give back, there is no end to what we as authors and writers can do for one another.
Hello there, Good to hear from another fellow author. yes u are much older than I..I am 24! haha. I am always looking for help so yes I would like it if you could help me in any way. And no I do not use Google Analytics, ill look into it tho. I look forward to hearing back from you and helping each other out however possible.
Hi justin, I've had some decent hits and some good feedback.
One, content it king. Be a good writer and people will be drawn to you. Two, images are king - put some popular images in your blog and google ImageFinder will find you. I did a movie review on a Ted Bundy movie, so I put up a few pics from his trial. I still get hits from all over the world from those pics, and I'm getting a little sick of it because the review itself is really good and deserves to be read.
Three: offend people occasionally. Nothing really awful, like racist or sexist content. But occasionally do a contrarian article that goes against the conventional wisdom of a certain group. Make fun of Twilight, say Bronies are dumb, say that everyone is wrong and Angelina Jolie is uglier than a horse's ass. Don't be afraid to make a splash every now and then.
Also, read up on how search engines work.
I'm not sure if you gave me advice just now in fact im not sure what to take from any of that. Maybe the whole images thing and being brutally honest every once in a while..I guess? Lol Thanks I will do what I can.
