How am I doing…
As far as my own posts go, it’s so far, so good on the basis of posting; hit and miss on whether I get to the AtoZ post of the day and add a link, but I think having the hashtag in the title is doing some good, at least. I’m happy to be doing what I normally blog about; I read a really good post the other week on why authors should ignore most of the blogging ‘rules’, since they are written to attract people to the adverts, not to the author’s books. You can read the whole article here, but in brief, for authors it’s all about networking and letting readers get to know you. That’s why I like the #AtoZChallenge – it gives me a chance to meet people I’d never have found otherwise.
I am getting to visit some new people – hi to…
- Jazz Feathers at The Old Shelter
- Kristin at Finding Eliza
- Shalini at Indian Dishes at Something’s Cooking
- Emily at My Life in Ecuador
- Debbie at My Random Musings
- Nick at Scattergun Scribblings
- C D Gallant-King at Stories I Found
- Lady In Read at MyRandRSpace
I’m definitely being visited by people I haven’t met before, or not for a long time (i.e. I apologise for forgetting we’ve met before). But only if I get my links up early on the daily post. I find visiting easiest if I visit someone who has commented on a blog I’ve also commented on… it creates a sort of chain!
Have you visited my guinea pigs?
While I’m here I’ll give a shout-out to my guinea pigs, Kevin and Percy. They are doing a splendid job of their A to Z Challenge over at George’s Guinea Pig World. Good work, boys – have an extra carrot, I’ll see you here on Thursday.
Come back for an interview with them for the letter K!
