I don’t really do “blog series”, but I’ve had a few ideas stewing in the back of my mind that I think would make for good short series. But I need your help! Read and vote, my friends, on which series of posts you think you’d enjoy most on my blog over the next few months:
1. Out of Time Series “spoiler” series.
The books are out. The series is complete. Is it too early for a “spoiler” series? In this series, I’d take a lot of reader questions and answer them in blog posts about each book. I’d also share why I did some of the things I did, what directed the story certain ways, etcetera.
What do you think? Sound interesting? Or is that boring? (It’s okay if it is.)
2. Book marketing series
For this, I would have one to two posts a month on book marketing. I have SO MANY THOUGHTS on marketing and would love to share them, but only if you want them. Some things I would cover:
- Newsletter tips
- Garnering reviews for your books
- Social Media balancing/marketing (Instagram, Twitter, FB, etc.)
- How to throw Facebook parties
- Street teams / Launch teams
Obviously this blog series would be a bit more targeted toward writers, so it wouldn’t be every week. I would space these posts out to one or two per month as I do with all of my author/writing-related posts. Thoughts?
3. Bookish talk and reading recommendations.
We’re all bookworms and we get slightly rabid sharing our book recommendations (can I get an amen?) Authors are not excluded from this. So I was thinking of a short blog series covering my favorite recommended books from certain genres. Posts like “My top 10 favorite YA series recommendations” or “My top 10 fantasy recommendations” or “My top 10 sci-fi recommendations” or “My top 10 time travel recommendations”, you get the picture.
But I know this has the potential to tip over your already towering TBR pile. Still…thoughts?
4. Personal story series
This would be a series just sharing stories fro my life. (Hopefully not boring ones.) I’ve been realizing how wild of a life I’ve lived and, even though I do the Adventuring Author posts, those tap into the small amount of adventures I have during the current year.
These personal stories could be anything from something fun (the day I found the key to a secret library) to something deeper (spiritual growth in college) to something pretty much everyone can relate to (when I tried to get my driver’s license…in a stick shift. On icy roads.) to my personal writer’s journey (when I attended my first writing conference) to something comical (when my family left 8-year-old me behind in Wyoming…we lived in California) to…you get the picture.
I need your vote.
You only get to vote once, so make it count. 😉 If the poll isn’t working for you, then just comment below with your top choice! (You can include your second choice if you want. 😉 )
Okay, so tell me…which one are you most interested in and WHY?
