Amanda gave some great pointers! Thanks for sharing.

Nancy said...

That was very helpful to me. I especially liked learning how to title my blog posts. Those were ideas I had never heard before.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Loree - I'm glad you enjoyed the article.

Hi Nancy - I try to find posts that will be beneficial. :)


Janette Dolores said...

Thanks for this, Susan. Right out of the gate, I learned to *stop* doing something on my blog--namely, anchoring links with the word "here." I do that all of the time, including in my most recent post! I now know why I should stop.

Useful, succinct tips. :-) Be well.

Sarah Forgrave said...

I've loved Amanda's posts lately. So many great ideas.

Hope you have a great weekend, Susan! :)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Janette - There's a lot to learn about this blogging thing, isn't there? :)

Hi Sarah - Yes, she knows her stuff.

I just keep blogging, Facebooking, and writing (the weekly column). With a day job, there's only so much I can do. That's why I'm very excited about having the column picked up by an international already noticing some increase in blog traffic. So that helps!

Thanks for sharing Susan, I struggle with building my platform sometimes, as I have one foot in Europe and one in the USA, is that double work?

I connect through other bloggers and Amazon reviews. If a lot of people really like a book, then I'll take their word for it.

Another good link, Susan. Thanks!

Hi Rhonda - You'll have an excellent platform by the time you're ready to pitch your book. :)

Hi Marja - Facebook, Twitter, and anything else on the Internet is worldwide, so I think you're covering both.

Hi Stephen - I also depend on reviews from other bloggers to point out great new releases. I don't read much on Amazon. By the time I go there, my buying decisions are already made.

Hi Jean - Thanks. :)
