Last month I gave you a poll to find out what you liked (and by assumption, didn’t care for so much) on my blog.  You also left useful comments and feedback; thank you for your time and effort.

The highest ranked item was… Book Reviews.  That’s good, because I think that’s a good thing for my blog to do and it makes me read more regularly.  More and regularly.

Next was a tie between Flash Fiction, (On) Writing, two of my favourite topics.  Then came Technical Tips, Blog/Giveaway Hops and Character Interviews.  That was very interesting, and suggests I could do more character interviews this year.

Everything else had its followers apart from Book Blasts. I suppose people feel about them rather the same as me.  I discussed with one well-known tour and blast promoter whether the market was changing and if these things have had their day.  I think we concluded that they weren’t as effective as they used to be, partly because getting them onto blogs with a good following was increasingly difficult.  It gave me plenty of food for thought about promoting The Perihelix, anyway.

So, my conclusions from your response?  More of the same, and of what I like, and perhaps only do the other things when it’s something I want to share with you, rather than something I think I should do as part of the community.

So: if you’d like to interview one of my characters, drop a note in the comments about who you’d like to interview, and I’ll email you to arrange who, when and where….

What you like

      Well, you could send me some questions by email, Noelle, saying who you’d like to interview 🙂

      Not surprised, although the middle order is interesting. I was pleased that book reviews and flash fiction came out well, and that people like my ramblings on writing. Also pleased that I can stop working so hard on the book blasts 🙂

      BTW in case I don’t get there tonight – I loved your post today. 🙂
