Monday Musings…Blogging Frustrations

*Venting post*

Folks, I have been blogging for almost 4 years! My anniversary is in May! Can you believe it? There have been some real highlights of blogging for me. It has truly blessed my life and opened doors (remind me to tell you about BEA-going this year!)

But….

Lately….

With no comments and no feedback, I’ve slowed down a bit. It feels like going the extra mile would just be for myself.

Will I stop blogging? No. I love to read. And I love to share what I’m reading. But should I have more author interviews? Will people even participate in giveaways? Do I need to post more than 2 or 3 times a week?

Ultimately I blog anyway because this idea, this mandate came from the Lord. And so, even if He is my only audience I will keep blogging. But I sure wish I knew what others were thinking.

  1. I read The Eyes of the Heart some time ago (and really liked it), but just recently discovered your blog. I’ve enjoyed scrolling through this evening looking at your book reviews and Monday musings. Building an author platform and finding an audience is time consuming to say the least. The fact that you are able to do all of this on top of your busy practice is amazing! I am on extended hiatus from the practice to raise my children, but at the very start of my career (more like a serious hobby) as a writer. With the little bit of platform building I have done, I know how difficult it is. My hat is off to you for being able to balance the two 🙂

    1. Thank you for reading Eyes of the Heart! And are you a lawyer too? It is a very…interesting career. Have you self-published anything? Building a platform is not easy, especially for introverted types such as myself. There’s so much more I need to be doing, but I keep hoping for an easy way out or something. I’ll figure all of this out one day. 🙂

      1. Yes. I practiced in California for 11 years (Not under my internet “pen name” LOL) Not self-published. Hoping to go traditional. Probably a long shot. Right now just entering contest after contest with some good results (and some really bad 🙂 It is all helping to refine my work.

      2. There’s nothing wrong with hoping for traditional! I still want to publish traditional with a new series I’m working on. I just know after going to several writing conferences that black historical fiction is a risk for traditional christian publishers. I’ve done the entering contests thing too! I wish you all the best, it’s a long road, but I think it comes down to loving writing.
