Isn’t that crazy? Big shout-out to Anuj Agarwal for giving me this award. I’ve worked very hard to make a name for myself among the self-publishing world. Feedspot is a website where all of your favorite blogs and websites can be found in one place in one stream of newsfeed. It’s an honor to be counted among their Top 100 Self Publishing Blogs.
You can see the badge I was awarded, proudly displayed in the sidebar of my blog 🙂
As always, I couldn’t have done this without your continued help and support. Give yourselves a firm pat on the back 🙂
I know I’ve been kind of distant, writing my songs. Sometimes, songs are all I can write! I’d like to keep up with my blog though, and come back strong.
My life is on the move in many ways…so are my stories. Stay tuned.
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.
