I’ve done lots of reading on writing, marketing, and different ways to build a writer’s platform. I’ve read pros and cons to blogging a book, whether fiction or non-fiction.
You can visit www.heirforcenovel.wordpress.com to see it. Why did I decide to blog Heir Force? Mostly to force myself to get some work done, to keep the book going and maybe build a small following. My following is small, but that’s okay. I have been blogging Heir Force for nearly a year now. I started with 4 followers, people who know me. I now have 130 followers. No big number by any means, but I don’t advertise, rarely visit other blogs and only post 2-3 times a week, mostly without pictures.
My other job is homeschooling my three oldest children. That takes a little of my time. Then the youngest goes to preschool and when she’s home, she needs some Mommy time! So, I am only a part-time writer who longs to be full time. That time will come soon enough.
I am having fun blogging my book and ‘meeting’ readers from all over. Occasionally I visit you, Dear Reader, but don’t be hurt if I don’t. My days are busy and I try not to spend all day on the computer. And when I read a book, I prefer to hold it, not look at this screen any longer than I already do.
Next time, I will share what I’ve learned about blogging a novel and what I would do differently.
Do you read novel blogs? Can you share them and what you like/don’t like about them? Our readers might like to know about them. Share in the comments.
I’m not currently working on a blog book, but I have created a blog with correlation to a work of fiction I’m getting published. I know there’s a lot of work and not much time. I think what you’re doing is admirable. Can’t wait to read it!
Thanks, Jennifer! It can be a daunting thing, with all the other things writers do. Thanks for visiting and congrats on your published book!
Enjoyed hearing how you manage your time. I am struggling with my time management and this is helpful. Looking forward to what you will share next. Thanks Michelle
You’re welcome, Janet! It all takes time to set things up and make writing a habit. You can do it!
Thank you 😀
