As an author, “they” say you need a social media platform. It’s true. You should have somewhere you can stand up and be seen/heard. For some people, that platform is Facebook or Twitter. But, I just don’t feel like I get as much out of those as I do here. For me, it’s about killing two birds with one stone. Yes, I need an author platform, but I also enjoy sharing my experiences as a self-published author with others. I learned a ton from folks who shared and I want to pay it forward by doing the same for someone else. I like feeling like I’m being helpful.
So, after writing on this blog since June, I’ve gained 150+ followers and average ~100 visitors a week. My three goals for the end of the year are as follows:
Gain another 100 followers
Average 200 visitors a week
Get people to actually comment on my posts!
This is part of the WordPress Blogging 201 challenge. I’m looking forward to seeing what I learn over the next few weeks and applying it to what I blog about. If you haven’t heard of Blogging 201, you can check it out here.
