Button Button, Who’s Got the Button?

Blogger Siyana recently posted an article about increasing blog traffic/followers (http://www.siyanaonline.com/how-did-i-get-to-1000-subscribers/).  Though I mostly write this blog for my own amusement, and anyone else who is interested, I haven’t gone out of my way to try to get followers.  However, one item on her list struck me and made me wonder:  Have a follow button!

Did I have a Follow Button?  Being new to all this, I couldn’t be sure, but in checking it was pretty clear that I didn’t.  It took quite a bit of digging to figure out how to put one on my blog, but WhooHoo!  I did it!  My big bloggy accomplishment for the week!

Slowly but surely, I’ll figure out…some of this stuff.  No promises, though!

For those of you who ARE interested in increasing followership, you might want to check out her article for some basic ideas.  Good luck.


I Made It!

I started this blog on Sept. 18, 2016.  At the time, I wasn’t sure that I would manage to stick with it and keep posting on a regular basis.  However, as of today, I am nearly a week beyond the one year anniversary.  Woohoo!

In light of that, it seems incumbent upon me to express some profound and insightful commentary that properly marks this auspicious occasion.  Therefore, read on!

Question of the Day

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Discuss among yourselves.

After all, it’s time for Punxsutawney Phil to get a real job!


Kindle Scout, fyi

Blogger Mladen Reljanović, on his Writer to Writers blog, posted an interesting article today about the Kindle Scout program.  For those of you who publish, or hope to publish, you may find it of interest:  http://writertowriters.com/kindle-scout-kindle-publishing-option/

NOTE:  I have no personal knowledge of Kindle Scout, so I can offer no encouragement or warning with regards to it, only make you aware of it if you weren’t already.

Uh oh!

When I started this blog, I figured I should start jotting down things to post – try to stay ahead of the game, as it were.  Just realized that I’m down to only 3 unposted items in the queue!

I’d better hurry and come up with a whole lot more to say pretty soon, or this blog will bite the dust.  I think you have to actually post stuff for it to be considered a blog…  Isn’t that a blogging rule?

I need to get more opinionated quick.  Okay, no, I’m already opinionated enough.  Most of the time, though, I realize it is best to leave some things unsaid.  I need to come up with more valuable things to say…yeah, that’s the ticket.

Happy rainy Friday night to you (in Southern California anyway).
