Author Platforms: Blogs

Just call me Your Blogness. Most of the students in last night’s class successfully got blogs up and running. From to the students are building their author platforms stick by stick. I’ll post more as I get the addresses. Way to go, class.
Writing Tip for Today: A baby blog needs care and feeding in order to grow. Don’t be discouraged at first when you feel as if no one is reading your posts. Continue posting interesting stuff, often and regularly, spice up with photos, video or music, run contests and leave comments with trackbacks on established blogs. And tell your friends, family and the checker at the grocery store.

  1. Thanks for this encouraging post. As a new blogger, I have to tell myself daily that comments and readers don’t pour in overnight.

  2. Linda here: Jan, the easiest way I know to leave a trackback is to include your blog’s url in the body of your comment. That way you know it’s there. Yes, Sarah, keep at it! The platform is important but it doesn’t build itself. If you leave your blog address as Diane did above, I’ll drop by! Linda
