So I’ve been blogging since last August. If I’ve made even one person smile it’s all worth it.
Nah, just kidding, there’s a better reason. I am trying to make a living as a writer, and I’ve done lots of research about it. The first thing anyone will tell you is that if you want to be a writer, you must write a blog. So I do. And I appreciate everyone out there who loves it. Both of you.
The reason blogs are a good idea for writers is to show the ability to write things that lots of people want to read. Now listen carefully, because this is where you do your part. If you are reading my blog but don’t think it’s very good, well, why are you reading it? If you are reading it because you like it, I can’t really prove that to anyone if you don’t subscribe. It’s like, super easy. There’s a little box on the top of the right hand side of the screen, it looks like this:
If you type your email address in there you will receive an email asking you to confirm your subscription to my blog. You can go right ahead and click that, and then you will receive an email every time I post something. I will receive the glow of knowing that you really, really like me. Also, I can prove that a gazillion people a day are actually interested in reading what I write.
Thank you to those of you who already subscribe. If you don’t subscribe, well, right now would be an awesome time to sign up. Oh yeah, and if you love it, don’t keep it a secret! Send the link http://universalmusings.com to other people, and then maybe they will subscribe too.
I know you’re busy. And it’s not like writing is my life’s dream or anything. If you’re the kind of person who kicks puppies and stomps on dreams, well, there’s not much I can do.
To recap, you are either the kind of person who subscribes to my blog, or the kind of person who kicks puppies. Give it some thought.
