A Valuable Invitation: For Those Seeking Writing Companions!

Postby kdaniels » Fri Mar 31, 2017 8:59 pm

I have come up with a plan:
<<<
But just a little background first:

Like - I assume - the majority of the folks in the Writer's Digest community, I'm pursuing a career in writing. I'm aspiring to write fiction (We can talk about what genre I'll fall under later), but also to freelance. I'm interested in writing articles, columns, and blogging about social trends and issues, politics, cultural opinions and other sociological concerns.

I've been aspiring toward all of this for ten years now; I've had quite an adventure trying to make it happen - many set-backs.

So towards these ends I'm going to open a blog, specifically themed as a journal about my pursuits as a writer. I believe that this can be a platform from which to develop my prose and voice, spark inspiration and ideas, as well as bring along fellow comrades who are also reaching toward their dreams of being professional writers, or published authors. My subscribers can frequent my blog to give and receive advice, inspiration, ideas - and network with me and maybe other subscribers as well. Perhaps we can establish a writing community of our own!

I have a Wordpress framework already in place, but I want to get my first several posts primed before I actually add the content. But I want to give you all an advanced invitation to check it out before it is launched. I expect by the middle of April I will be ready to publish my first post.

In the meantime, please comment or shoot me a private message with your own blog or website links, so that I can see your writing! I would like to give you my attention before I ever earn yours.

A blog is indeed a great way to hone your craft. One I, sadly, have been neglecting.

As for the feedback and companionship, though... why not here?

Don't get me wrong, I'm engaging in the community here. I want to, however, reach out so that a following is built for the blog. That's why I'm making an invitation on the forum here. But, I'm open to other suggestions as to how I can build a readership on the blog...

slowly

by constant promotion to useful content
and having enough so people keep coming back on their own

you will need to , imho, supplement it with other social media
that links to your blog and where you also post comments that could get people to read it

put the blog and blurb on your email byline
and social media sites too when you post assuming it is possible
