Self-aware. Self conscious. Self induced.

Building Readership

I’m taking part in a blog-building campaign that runs through October. It’s organized by the fearless Rachael Harrie at Rach Writes. I haven’t done one of these before, so I expect it will mean a little bit more dramaturgy in content, in addition to the series I’m just starting.

She holds the occasional “challenges” – an example of which was the A-Z Challenge this past spring – one post per day titled and themed around sequential letters of the alphabet.

I’m a little leery of what this means in terms of work and the time it will take away from actually working on manuscripts, but I’m hoping that it will add some structure, discipline, and readership.

Off we go!

  5. Hi Kurt! Good to meet you, and thanks for dropping by blog too. Yes, I run enidblyton.net and am webmaster for enidblytonsociety.co.uk (neither of which I have time for!).

    I’m not sure about the September 5th campaign date, as I’ll be at Dragon*Con in Atlanta…

  8. Hi Kurt! The campaign is great! I did it last year and met so many awesome writers/bloggers. It’s a great way to connect, more than anything else…. with others who are serious about writing and pubbing.
    Great to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my blog… and see you on the campaign! :)
