Wow! What a week. I had a ton of fun working my way through the blog hop and getting to know my fellow Indelible authors a little better.
Welcome to all the new followers on the blog, twitter, and through readers! And a big thank you to everyone who posted on their blogs and tweeted and supported us.
And now onto the winners!
The winner of THE LIAR SOCIETY is Denise Z.!
The winner of an Indelibles author’s ebook is Susan @ the Book Bag!
And if you haven’t checked the Indelibles blog, Chris Fenimore won the Kindle Fire. Yay!
And now let’s talk about blog reading trends. And you.
What makes you click through?
Are there certain hot topics that seem to take up most of your blog reading time?
I definitely read the blogs in my feed even if I don’t comment on them. But when I’m scanning Twitter, I go through phases.
At one point, I was reading all about query letters. Trust me, I don’t need to read another one as long as I live. There cannot be new info on those things that I don’t already know. (Now knowing and applying are completely different things.)
I’ve been through the story structure phase; and, of course, the result of all I learned and how I learned to apply it to my writing came out on the blog in the form of Plot Busters.
Last spring and summer, I was reading all about the pros and cons of traditional publishing and self-publishing and agents becoming publishers. I was fascinated! And that all came out on the blog this past summer.
So much is changing.
So much has changed.
But in a lot of ways, some aspects of writing have stayed the same.
Most recently, I’ve been reading about formatting, coding, and HTML. Oh and throw in marketing and promoting for good measure.
What about you? What have you been reading and does it influence what you blog about?
