So you have plenty of time to write a post a day, spending two to four hours processing photographs, creating professional graphics, writing about your niche, and you need more to do?
In Part One we discussed getting the most publication for your writing hours by using WordPress “Publicize,” or a Third Party service like buffer or Hootsuite. CoSchedule, the wonderful blog that brings us the headline analyzer, also has a calendar that allows you manage and publicize posts. Their product starts at $60 for 10 accounts, but with more users. It is primarily a business tool.
Amazon has 3,563,384 literature and fiction books available to read. Amazon lists Hold Fast (A Jack and Shea LAPD Homicide Series) by Lindy Gligorijevic as a play. It is a police drama and is my pick for this week’s A+ Book Review Link Party. It’s easy to join this party. Simply write a review or post a link to a review you have already done of a literature or fiction book this week.
Amazon has 324,556 Teen and Young Adult books available to read. I found this Young Adult book review by Canadian, Anne Logan, as I browsed through my favorite blogs last week. I asked her if I could republish it on my blog, and she gave me permission. Flannery is my pick for this week’s A+ Book Review Link Party. It’s easy to join this party. Simply write a review or post a link to a review you have already done of a Teen or Young Adult book this week.
The primary characteristic that separates a blog from any other static form of communication is the relationships bloggers make with their readers. Blogging is reciprocal.
So what is going to get you started the quickest and make you the best relationships?
Comparing Pages and Posts
Trying to make sense of posts and pages, I’ve come up with a solution as to which comes first based on my extensive years of experience. Posts are the chickens, and pages are the eggs. Without posts, there is no interaction with an audience because readers don’t usually go to pages. So if you are the fly by the seat of your pants kind of writer like Stephen King, you might start with a post.
I flew home from Delaware September 9th and while I waited for my flight, I charged my phone. While I charged it, I chatted with delightful Faitth Brooks. As we chatted, I found out that she blogs. Since I’m still writing Because of Blogging, I asked if I could interview her. She agreed.
Maybe you are naturally efficient. If so, I’d love to walk a mile in your shoes without stumbling and falling on my face. When I have a fruitful day I celebrate! Play with a tiger even!
Tuesday, during an unusually productive day, I read a great post by Dianne Gray, one of my favorite authors. She played around with titles for some of her daily adventures called My Week In Titles. As I flew through my week-in-a-day Tuesday, Dianne inspired me and I began giving my activities titles.
Amazon has 3,563,384 literature and fiction books available to read. This particular genre is horror, but Amazon does not give a specific number for horror books. Frankly, this book did not seem horrible and is my pick for this week’s A+ Book Review Link Party. It’s easy to join this party. Simply write a review or post a link to a review you have already done of a literature or fiction book this week.
