Author blog.

Reading about an author blog on twitter made me wonder if this should be an author blog or remain as a blog by an author. If it is to be an author blog it should contain links to my websites or the ability to purchase books but , at the moment, that is only possible through, which is linked to amazon.

Also, I guess I should be demonstrating my writing style, while I have only been posting poems. My problem is that I don’t seem able to connect with readers in the UK. I know a great many of them do not use the computer but I think, perhaps, I do not use keywords or Google as well as I could.

Until I get more skilled on the computer I’ll continue as I am, mixing musings with advice. Sorry there’s no photo but the country walk we had at Bramber yesterday was a delight. All on the flat and the dog was allowed in the pub afterwards for lunch. In fact he nearly pulled us through the door!

  1. Julie,
    How do you promote your blog? If you have it linked to Twitter, you may want to look at the times at which you post, as different parts of the world are active at very different times.
    You could join U.K. Author Facebook groups, perhaps. I’m in the uk and you connected with me! I think engaging with ANY people is difficult.


  2. Do you have an email list? You can run giveaways to attract readers, then you collect email addresses and you can start engaging with those people who should be interested in your work, as they entered your giveaway. If you’re not sure how to do that, I wrote a guest post here:

    Using this and similar methods I’ve added 1100 readers in the last 2 months and they are all active.
