Sooo over at my first blog, http://montairyus23.wordpress.com/, the goal was to get as many followers as I could. I’ll be honest, I wanted followers just for the sake of being able to say to a publisher, “Hey! Look at how many people are interested in my book!” However, when it really came down to it, when I would blog about my trilogy (TSOM), not too many people seemed interested. I had/have over two hundred followers, and a post about my trilogy would only generate a few likes, and rarely a new follower or a comment. I wasn’t sure what I was doing wrong…and I’m still not 🙂
But experiencing this has made me realize something; when it comes to blogging, it’s quality, not quantity that matters. If you want to get a book out there, if you want to be and feel heard, just remember it’s all about the quality. You can have 2,000 followers, but if only fifteen are interested in what you’re writing about, then you really only have fifteen true followers.
I must say, I truly feel blessed to have such an engaged audience already here at The Golden Lands. You guys are totally awesome and it’s your support that keeps me going and gives me hope. This is what every writer needs, whether he knows it or not. And it’s what every writer wants, whether he wants it or not.
