2011 Most Popular Post – BUY ME! READ ME! REVIEW ME!… Talk to me.

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Hey friends! For the first half of last year I ran a blog site with my good friend, Susi Nonnemacher. Sharing a blog with her made crossing the line from obscurity into a public platform to share thoughts and ideas a little less daunting. Thanks to WordPress and their “Year in Blogging” stats I learned that my post from last May was our most popular post.

At the time I was “online” for five months I was noticing way too many spammy advertising tweets and not enough conversational tweets. There was one person in particular, a person I considered a friend, who all of a sudden went the way of a book pimp. Every tweet, every conversation revolved around his/her book and I just couldn’t take it anymore. So I did what any self respecting writer would do, I took it to my blog. 🙂 

I’m reposting this because with the new year here, new goals have been set and I’m positive that most of those goals revolve around book sales. This is my friendly reminder to keep it real and don’t forget to be a human about it. 😉 

So, here it is. I didn’t edit my original post, so its in its rambling glory. Enjoy!
