Thank you for all those that gave me a very warm welcome. I have checked out numerous blogs that were linked to me and am now following almost all. If I missed one, please forgive me. If you would like to check out my blog, I have one on my website atwww.ckhopperbooks.webs.com and also at ckhopperbooks.blogspot.com. Both are relatively new, so I could use some followers; if you find anything interesting, don't be shy.
My question for all of you out there is:
How does anyone find enough time to post blogs about books they've read or reviewed and still find time to write? I have most of my blogs, pages, and my website linked together, but still all of this is slightly overwhelming. Any ideas?
I've been trying to balance that myself.
The best I've come up with is doing a series on my personal blog. Otherwise, I just write/work on my own novel in snips and notes. I have a stack of stickies-notes that I will need to make sense of.
Sounds about like my method.
I have a notebook with tidbits about each character and a research list that I comment on as I gather info. It's keeping me organized as far as writing is concerned, but I'm still working out a method on blogging (too new yet to have a system). My attempt is to have blogs posts alerts sent to my e-mail and to read them before I start writing, but there are too many! :D
Thanks for your input.
I love it! I'm not that far gone yet, but well on my way!
As far as the schedule, I knew I was forgetting something! No wonder I've been getting ignored at home! Even the dog no longer listens! (just joking)
The best option is to narrow your blogging to one site. Copy/paste any reviews to amazon, goodreads, etc. and have an auto-announcer that posts to Twitter and a feed puller that drags from your feed to facebook.
One hour to create the original post and 20 minutes, tops, to get it syndicated.
All the rest is left for your other writing. Remember to hone your message, as that is the way you truly get a following.
