After nine days of blogging, searching, and commenting, I’ve decided to re-insert a number reference into the post headings. Even though the posts are sequenced by date, I’m finding that some sort of numeric reference in the heading makes commenting and responding to specific issues in my blog a little more efficient.
Writer’s Digest Community
For writers who haven’t heard about this new site yet, I strongly recommend checking things out at www.writersdigest.ning.com. Notification about the site came to me through a valued comment, and I’m now signed up as part of that community.
Any writer, regardless of what stage you’re in (a beginner just starting to develop your first piece, or an experienced author) will find a comfortable home in the Writer’s Digest Community. Plus, WD is the organization that sponsored and ran the conference in New York last September, the one that inspired and lit a fuse under me. So you can be sure you’ll find leading-edge information on all aspects of writing on their new site.
Let me know what you think after you’ve visited the community.
Stats Update One Week Later
- 409: Hits on this blog as of a minute ago. Previously posted at 100. Not bad.
- 34,355: Hits on my website (www.eWritersRUs.com) Previously posted at 34,195. Not great, but at least up.
- 2,785,171: Hits for The Truth About Cinnamon on Amazon. Previously posted at 2,621,585. Slipped (because this is the number we want to go down instead of up). Until I’m ready to begin releasing the free serialization of Cinnamon’s first third, I’m not expecting this number to improve very much. But I’m anticipating that some people will want to secure a !st edition when we’re ready to stop production of the original version. That will happen when the new 2nd edition goes into production. The free serialization might prove useful in creating 1st edition interest.
Guess we’ll see about that. After all, that’s the sort of thing this blog is designed to help me/us learn.
Blog Posting Frequency
A comment came in suggesting that blog postings 2-4 times a week tend to work better for readers who don’t want to be overloaded. That frequency will also work better for me too, giving me more time to actually work on the things that I want to share in the blog.
If something dramatic happens, I’ll pop one in more frequently. Otherwise, I’ll be back about every three days with a new post. In between, I’ll be finding you out there and discovering what you’re all doing as well.
Have a great weekend!
