Making an Impression

I have over a 100 followers, 400 posts, over 4,000 views with about 1,500 unique visitors since I started this blog. So I’m making some impression somewhere. Good or bad, though from most of my commentors I’m assuming it’s mostly good. I’ve not seen any trolls or people complaining yet. Though I suspect there are a few. I’d be pretty one sided if people didn’t dislike me too for whatever reason they have.

But I know I’m being greedy when saying I want more. So we’ve been looking around at ways to do that. To increase my following and my readers. To spread my charming self around to more people. Yes egotistical and greedy. Isn’t that why you love me?

I’ve been toying with Twitter as of late. Though not exactly sure what I should be tweeting. I’m not the one writing AJ is, though I can tweet in her stead, and I have. But I need something to increase that following. Maybe something to pass back into facebook too since right now both are just a collection of my blog posts. And with no followers they get no click throughs. AJ doesn’t want to spam her friends with my mass of things which is why she’s an author page, and a page dedicated to just me.

I’ve also considered a monthly newsletter where we would send out things you can only read there. But the problem there being AJ has to think up things to share that people would want to read. I have this “Dear Nox” thing running in my head, answering questions in a way only I can… cause it’s me ya know. But that requires people to ask questions. The whole chicken and egg thing. AJ can get a few questions written and we could fake it for a few months, but after a while that will get boring. And the whole point of this is to get people to interact with the site, with me.

There is also a lovely thing called “irc” that anyone can use, it’s free to hit up a channel on a server. But not everyone knows how to use it. I love chatting. AJ lets me do it so frequently. Well that’s not true I have a running conversation every day with one of my friends. Sure she’s AJ’s friend, but it’s because of me… and I talk to her, and I talk to her characters… which is really the best part of the whole thing. Kindred spirits all of us! But I digress…

I want to make an impression. So since no one comments when I ask I’ll try a different method… Just click!

  1. I’m a huge Twitter fan especially for authors or potential authors. Most of them share useful links to other writers that I like to share or they post little snippets of stories with #AmWriting next to it. Hope that helps a little bit.

    1. yeah I’m using the #amwriting tag and tagging AJ’s handle to get her reader follow ship… but I’m not actually saying anything useful or fun yet… I need to figure it out

      1. Honestly most authors talk about their day or politics when they’re not sharing their writing agendas or retweeting other author’s book birthdays and things of that nature, lol. You’ll find a good rhythm.

      2. Except I don’t have a real life … AJ has her day to day twitter, which is mostly dev stuff, she’s her writing twitter which is obviously writing… and then there is mine that I used for Darwynn’s Law but ended up ditching it cause not my thing… but I know twitter can pull in followers just need to get it out there. Same with facebook. And to do that I need to be interesting. My day is rather up to AJ’s whims…

      3. I think you’d be surprised what people find interesting. I showed a friend your story and he was all over it. With Twitter, you just need to find that pool of good hashtags to use even if they aren’t 100% related.

      4. cool, thanks for passing me along! much appreciated. Right now, I need to use twitter. Other than as a place to cross post listings with hastags… that could just be what I need to do.. start adding the hash tags in.

  2. Duckling, I’m not a boob man, so no worries there. But what I really like is that you are happy! That is far more sexy than big boobs imo. And that’s the important thing, you are happy with yourself. Took me years to get there and here we are now flourshing bow

    1. AJ invented the race, Venator is latin for hunter, she added an i to happily tribute it to Dragon Age franchise but they are two separate things.
