What better way to start 2013 than with my best blogging week on record? Well, I can think of a feck-tonne of things that are better than a few good days of blogging, but it’s still a nice way to kick things off.
Much like writing, where the only true keys to success are to read and write loads, the only two ways to boost you cred in the blogosphere is to write and interact loads. I’ve been writing a fair bit in the six months since this wordpress became active, but I’ve been doing literally zilch when it comes to interacting with the writing community. Until January 1st 2013.
I’m proud to say that in one week of hard scrolling I’ve opened my eyes to all the amazing work, writerly, or otherwise, kicking about this place. And my firm follow-follow spree has also lead to plenty of folk who’ve never read a word of my writing coming over and investigating this humble fiefdom of internet space I’ve carved out for myself. I’ve broken my previous score for most blog views every day for the past three days, and had more visits in this one week than I’ve had in the whole of month of December.
Y’all keep on introducing yourself, and recommending yours and your friend’s blogs. I’m here to learn, read and write.
On a similar note, word has reached me from my spies that my absolute favourite high school teacher (she taught English, needless to say) is apparently an avid fan of this blog! Hi Miss Merrell! I’ve not forgotten to dedicate a book to you, I just need to get those pesky publishers to accept them first…
