Hi again!

Sorry I haven't posted since Friday- I actually got a weekend away with my husband this weekend! Feeling refreshed- and watching the Golden Globes on T.V. Unbelievable how trivial and pretentious it is but I just can't....look...away!!!
Anyway, I see that 3 of you have read the start of one of my short stories and you actually seemed to like it! I'm guessing the three of you who voted are all of my 3 followers! I'm very happy you stopped by again!
I wanted to know if it was worth continuing, so I thought I'd tease you with a little bit of it. If I can accumulate 2 more followers this week, I will continue to post more and more of it :-) It's not something I plan on trying to get published (as it's a short story), but I thought you guys might enjoy reading it whenever you get bored!
Does anyone have any more ideas about how to bring more traffic to a blog? If only I could hand out free burritos!
Anyway, I will post again tomorrow kiddies. Bring others you know to this site if you'd like to read more of my story! (Sad ploy, I know, but I'm desperate!)
Have a great night, talk to y'all tomorrow.

Hi Dena,

Nice to hear you had a great weekend.

As far as building up a blog presence. Do you belong to any other writing forums like www.verlakay.com or www.scbwi.org ($)? Getting involved with forums on sites like those may bring in some hits, especially if you post a link in your signature.

Another thing you could do, is comment on other people's blogs, of course, not in a trolling/spammy kind of way, but if you can think of something pertinent to add to the conversation, other blog readers might just follow you home.

Just some thoughts.

Thanks Tammy
I don't belong to those sites, but I will definitely have a look in a minute! So far I'm only involved in Jacketflap.com and I've listed my site with the search engines but that's as far as I've gotten!
That's a good idea about commenting too! Thanks for the input!
I'm off to take a look at verlakay.com now!
