The Surefire Method to Repel Connections and Make People Mad at You

i-cant-see-you-la-la-la-la-laIgnore them.

When they leave a comment on the blog, read it, maybe, but don’t respond.

If they ask a question on social media or by email, ignore it.

Don’t offer new information, say, by posting to your blog or updating your website.

Instead, disappear for weeks at a time.

If you want to compete in the business of being an author in 2016 you had better be approachable and responsive.

Or someone who is will take your readers.

And their money.

What Are You Writing?

that's no stairway to heavenThis site has 20 to 50 visitors a day (the 50 happens on Fridays.)

I’d love it if every one of you would do me the huge favor of leaving a comment with a note about your current writing project. I’m curious what y’all are doing as writers, not just readers.

If you like, you can also share whether it’s going well or badly, and why you think that might be the case.

Maybe we’ll get 20 to 50 comments. You are all working on something, right?

Email Notification for Comments

Seems there’s a hitch in my gitalong. Have you subscribed to the comments on a particular post?

Have you received those emails?

I need to know if this is an isolated incident or if my site’s broken. Once I hear real-life anecdotes I’ll decide if further research is warranted.

And tomorrow, there’ll be a real post here; one that’s about you, not me.
