2013 has been a fantastic year, I’ve had a great time with this new blog while continuing posting over at my blog for writers, My Literary Quest.
Here are the most popular posts from this blog this year:
Everything I need to know about life I learned from Spongebob – As with most popular memes, this post was inspired by a random spur of the moment idea. School was out for my kiddos and I’d overindulged with them on Spongebob. While watching the thought struck me that the show has a lot of positive ideas.
Summer Giveaway Hop 2013 – It’s not surprising that this post got a lot of hits, as part of a one of the biggest author hops and including a free giveaway there was good incentive to drop by. I had fun being a part of the hop and I am considering doing it again, although I might wait until I have a book to offer.
The Search is Over – Back in the beginning of the year I had a series of posts introducing my cast of characters. In this post I introduced Jarand, one of the protagonists, and compared him to the popular tenor Alfie Boe. To my surprise the Alfie Boe fan club dropped by and said hello!
While I would love to say I’m happy with my current traffic, it’s really quite puny. I guess that’s what I get for not posting as often and not having a strong platform. The biggest problem is that I really don’t know what to say here. I don’t have that regular news about the current book I’m working on that I’m willing to share, yet. And I haven’t published yet so I can’t really post updates about that either.
One of my goals for 2014 is to find a better focus for this blog and then reach out to that audience and bring them in. I’d love this blog to serve as a brilliant way of attracting fans to my writing. Hey, a girl can dream right?
Here’s to another great year of blogging!
It’s hard to keep the clicks flowing, isn’t it? There’s so much content out there, and people’s tastes change and interests wane. Still, a small social media presence is better than none.
If it were easy to find fame and fandom through social media then it wouldn’t be as rewarding, I guess. Must keep chipping away at the iceburg.
