SYSTEM FAILURE

Re-blogging does grow your blog. I have proof of that. Do you know what today is? It’s #reblogwednesday! Every Wednesday is #reblogwednesday here in the Land of Blogs! Even though I’ve been heading up this event since January, it still sneaks up on me. If you don’t know what #reblogwednesday is all about read about it here.

I’ve had tons of participation in this event and I’m very grateful it has gone over so well. I try to keep those pages updated with all your re-blogs and once-in-a-while I know I slip up and miss something. Sorry about that folks. My system may be failing to keep up with your good deeds of re-blogging.

I’ve had comments for re-blogs scattered all over the place and often I don’t get to update my pages until the weekend. This makes me having to look in many different places and take up too much of my time to make sure I haven’t left anyone out. I want to give credit where credit’s due.

Thinking this through late last night I came up with a better system – I hope. Whenever you re-blog for #reblogwednesday please link to me mentioning this is a #reblogwednesday re-blog so I will get a notification you want your post presented on the participant re-blog page. It’s very easy to do, but you must link it to me and not just type out the name. I hope these instructions down there are right:

  • At the bottom of your post type Elle Knowles  (After you re-blog you may have to go into your post in your dashboard and edit to add this link.)
  • Highlight and click on the link button above on your bar.
  • Go to my site and copy my link or type in https://knowleselle.wordpress.com in the box provided. (make sure your link works)

This should make a link and I should get a notification. Then all I have to do is copy and paste your info onto the participation page or even on your very own re-blog page when you meet the requirements. Easy-peasy for me and not-so-very-hard for you!

Don’t let your re-blog get lost in the comment section on one of my pages. Follow these rules to make sure that doesn’t happen!

I will be changing my #re-blogwednesday rules to show this new feature shortly. If anyone can present me with an even easier way to keep up with this process please speak now or forever hold your peace. 😉

As I said in the beginning, reblogging does grow your blog. I have proof of that. Get the word out! Please feel free to re-blog this article so all participants will know the new rules and #reblogwednesday will continue growing bigger and bigger. It’s all about you folks!

Now let’s get to re-blogging and make someone’s day! 😉

TWITTER FOR AUTHORS

Almost all authors know about Twitter.

Few authors feel that they really know how to use it.

Some authors believe that Twitter isn’t as effective for book marketing as it once was.

Other authors believe Twitter isn’t for them.

Yet many authors do use Twitter quite effectively.

One important note is that there isn’t just one way to use Twitter.

So you can find the right combination of tips to fit your needs and personality.

Twitter Tip #1: Make the Most of Hashtags

What you want is a hashtag that your target audience actually checks out. Otherwise, your hashtag is wasted.

This takes some research. But the research is worth it because once you find an effective, relevant hashtag, you can use it not just for your current tweet, but for hundreds of related tweets in the future.

Many authors simply throw a hashtag…
