Hello to all the wonderful people reading my blog today 🙂
I am an overthinker, it probably goes hand in hand with my need for perfectionism, so as an overthinking perfectionist I spend way too much time, erm… pondering how to reach the masses with my poetry/writing.
As an OP (might be worth my time abbreviating it up front) I want to excel, not because I need to make a living from writing but because I want loads and loads of people to read what I write. I admit that I really don’t have a clue about how to maximise my on-line presence. I’m happy trundling along on WordPress, my 300+ posts have been viewed in total over 8,000 times and I have almost 350 followers. It still makes me smile when a post or poem is particularly well received. In all honesty I’m quite astounded that there are so many of you who enjoy reading the random musings of my mind so thank you for sticking with me.
So WordPress is good. I have a Facebook page @blueskydays365 which basically just shares my blog activity to a handful of people, and I have twitter @HorsleyPoet which I have just set up.
[I do have a personal twitter account but haven’t really used it much over the years so am not an expert tweeter by any stretch of the imagination]
I admit that I am totally bemused by twitter, the volume of stuff that goes on there is immense, how do they (twitter users) know what to read? Do I have to tweet masses and masses of stuff in an attempt to get followed by people who may never see anything I tweet again? Or do twitter users genuinely spend hours scrolling through their feed?
And then there’s Instagram?!
Answers may be submitted through any channel 😉
But in the meantime I’ll keep busy creating Micro Poetry Images to tweet along with the rest of the world! Have a great day, K x
