How to promote my blog…..hmmmmm??? Well right now I am not too sure I want too many people reading this blog. I f I say so myself I think it may just suck a little. But I have to cut myself some slack….I am trying to learn something that is making my mind wobble a bit. I have two goals. First…I want to learn how to be a professional blogger. Secondly but not necessarily in that order I want to write a blog that people want to read. After the two years I have just had I have found I have lost some of my sense of humor. I use to be much funnier but I will get that back in time. So my main focus will just have to be to LEARN….and once I learn HOW to be a professional blogger I can then work on BEING a professional blogger with all of the fun that entails.
There are many suggestions on how to promote a blog. The only one I am using right now is the patience of my friends who may read this and pushing the SHARE button for Google and listing my posts on Facebook and Twitter. I have a feed that lists who has seen my site and I am amazed at the number of people I do not know that chance upon it. Whether they stop to read it or not remains to be seen but they are coming. For me, right now, that’s a great start as I bump my way along this confusing road.
There are pages upon pages with links upon links for ideas. I do not have the time to read them all so I save them and when I have a minute here or there I peruse them and I will get an idea that I may or may not try. I do not know how else to do it.
When I started college I was told what to study when. It was much easier. This is much harder. I have to pick and choose and hope I am reading the right relevant material and trying the right things. The jury is still out since this is only day 3. My personality wants to say…”Oh to Hell with it….I will never be good enough or have anything to say that anyone will want to read” but part of this exercise to me is in preparation of writing a book. Many people have been pushing me to write a book because they see me as a gifted writer. Hard to believe I know if you are reading this dribble but I have to start somewhere. Writers block is a nasty thing and the only way I have ever gotten over it was just by picking up a pen or the keyboard and to just write….sometimes it takes a while before I find my voice. So I will be patient with myself and just write and hopefully in time I will hit on something.
You never know….if you keep checking out my page every now and then you might just end up reading something worth your while
In the meantime…thank you for reading
