I read a blog that is hugely entertaining, http://livelaughloveliquor.wordpress.com. I noticed that her blog has a bold appeal for readers as well as for likes. This blog has a sporadic readership. I am embedded deep in the Internet Undercover Protection Program so few of my friends and family know I am here.
Somehow, for me, it is better to remain anonymous so the writing is not confused with the personality. When I know personal details about writers it diminishes their writing by clouding my perspective.
The quandary is how to recruit readers. In an unabashed stroke of promotional GENIUS, I mailed paper copies of pertinent blog posts to a selected group of former associates. My next marketing campaign will include those incarcerated, as inmates or invalids.
