Every author site I’ve visited over the last six months has advocated maintaining a blog for the reader-author-book relationship. I get it. Still, I’ve struggled. I’ll have weeks where I’ll blog 2-3 times a week, and then I’ll have dry spells and not publish for a week or two. I knew I had to learn how to become more consistent. But, several questions were plaguing me. What to blog? How often?
I searched the internet daily for blog ideas and advice. One day, I happened upon Word Count’s BlogAThon May challenge. Participants would blog once a day for the entire month of May and be eligible for prizes. But, more importantly, Michelle Rafter who runs the contest would be passing along invaluable advice on blogging techniques. I hesitated. Could I really blog-a-day in May?! I knew I had to try.
To our readers and blogger peers, you are on this journey with us. We need your help and encouragement. Please follow our daily blog and comment from time to time. As incentive, a special prize will be given to the person who posts the most comments during the month of May!
For anyone still wanting to get in on the action, please visit http://michellerafter.com/the-2011-wordcount-blogathon. You can register for the BlogAThon all the way up to 11pm Pacific time today, May 1st.
