Found on #amwriting this morning:
Hey, you! Don't do that! 6 reasons your blog is scaring away your audience by Melinda Atlas.
First off, nice voice in this post--I know, I'm weird, you're not supposed to notice or comment on things like that--but I did find the tips interesting. The most useful or intriguing tip is under Point #4. Point #4 concerns novel covers on your blog, what to do, what not to do. Atlas suggests picking just one novel/cover. Awhile back, I heard about an author who pointed all his links to one novel, which had links to all his works, or something like that. This tip reminded me a little of that idea, and it sounds like a good idea to try, using one novel as a funnel for most of your blog traffic. I'll have to muse on it more, but I'll probably try it. But I want to wait until I got the right work, likely from my in progress so-called "secret" project (not so secret in that it is an intended for-the-love/free-fic project) or one from my episodic series I talked about in the last post. Either way, it will be a bit before I can try.
Anyway, what do you think?
