More on the topic of how to get people to read a blog. Well, to be more specific, how to get people to read MY blog. I'm still not sure whether people are reading my blog or whether people are reading my other writing that appears on my web site; that is, my short stories, non-fiction and so forth. I would truly appreciate some feedback. Yes, I have received the occasional comment on my blogs, (not often!), but they are either agreeing with something I have 'said' or are just talking about blogging in general.
I would like someone (anyone!) to post a comment with (maybe) a suggestion as to what is worth writing (i.e., blogging) about.
Last week I discovered a publishing organisation which has a "Manuscript Monday" thing going. It means that any writer may submit an unsolicited manuscript to them on a Monday and they will reply within a month if they like it. It's not the whole MS that you submit, but a synopsis plus one chapter. I sent (via email) a synopsis and, not the first chapter, but the prologue from my memoir.
Long shot, I know, but thought it was a good (and generous) idea of the publisher, especially in these times of 'hard-to-get-anything-published-unless-it's-50 shades-of something-soft-porn' (sorry about that!) Anyway, no harm in having a shot.
Wish me luck - and any suggestions for future blog subject matter most welcome. Thanks!
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
