Blog Networking

Today I’m lucky enough to be guest blogging over at L. Diane Wolfe’s blog, Spunk on a Stick. Many of you already know Diane, but if you haven’t met her yet, you’re missing out! Diane is a professional speaker who also writes the fabulous YA series Circle of Friends. Her latest book - Heather - is the final one in the series and is available now. Make sure you check it out. Diane's got a fabulous blog and her Sunday Sillies are great for a smile!

I’m talking today about blog networking and how to generate comments. If I'm being totally honest, I'm not a huge number watcher, but I've been lucky enough to generate a lot of comments on this blog, so Diane asked me to post today.

Pop on over and join the conversation! I'd love to hear your thoughts on how to get people talking on your blogs. Just click on the link. See you there! :)

  33. I'm always amazed at the online promotions that authors do. There are so many opportunities, but they take time. It is great that writers can get the word out about their books, though.

  35. Very good guest post. I'm pretty new to blogging (at least this go-around) and I'm still figuring out the best way to get interaction and be able to follow others. Off to check out Google Friend Connect and see if it works with WordPress... :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Melody - Thanks :) I don't know anything about WordPress so I'm afraid I can't help in that area! It doesn't take too long to get into the swing of things - just have fun :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. It was a good and fun post, Jemi! I *think* I left a comment over there... although I'm quite unsure as to whether or not it registered... Anywho, I enjoyed it and am very much hoping I've got my following/commenting blog slacking safely behind me. :)
