We writers stick together and encourage each other like no other occupation.
And I'm feeling more secure than insecure lately (thanks to my supportive friends!), so I'll just offer some advice:
Every writer has an audience. Someone out there wants to read what you write. We can't all be a number one best-seller, but we can be SOMEONE's number one author!
It's also time for the A to Z Reflections of 2015.
I can't believe the A to Z Challenge for 2015 is over - did it seem to fly by for you? The month of April sure did! I had a great time reading other blogs and all the great comments I got here, but I always felt so rushed to get my visits in. Eh, I always feel rushed. So I'm glad I'm sitting down for a few minutes to write this recap and reflection post.
Here are the numbers:
Here's how I visited:
Didn't Read - probably couldn't get to the blog or they hadn't posted in a while or at all with the challenge. I also didn't read any (AC) - my wittle eyes are too tender...
Didn't Comment - I just didn't connect with the posts. That's how it goes...
Replies - The low response is not unusual. I don't think some of the bloggers realize what they're getting into and hope everyone will flock to their blog without having to go visit themselves. I'm just happy to find some quality blogs each year and always do!
Stars - I gave stars to blogs whose themes I really liked (highlighted some of them on O day) and I hope to become better acquainted with them as things resume to normal.
Here's the data in pretty bar graphs =)
My Visits vs Visits Back
And here are the main words from most of the blogs I visited:
Then there's my favorite, these are the people who visited me with name size relating to how many times they came by - Thanks so much you guys!!
And if you're a tweeter, we are doing two last A to Z twitter chats on Thursday, May 7 at 1pm and 8pm. It's been a blast! #azchat is the hashtag.
Finally, my friend TB Markinson is starting a new feature giving away a few ebooks a month in a rafflecopter. It's a wonderful idea where she advertises books and authors and someone gets to win them - Win-Win! And I'm featured this month in TBM's May Giveaway along with Lee McKenzie, Chrys Fey, Kourtney Heintz, and Medeia Sharif! Check it out!
