My grandfather used to say two things to me. They stuck with me. The first was the opening of a conversation every single time, “what is bothering you?” He would say. My grandfather was someone I used as a sounding board, as a guide and as someone to think through problems with. Then grandpa would look at me after I had expressed the problem, and he would say, “so what are you going to do about it?” That started the second conversation. The first conversation is one that everyone has complaining about were whatever was happening was at the moment. The second part of the conversation was to begin building a path to a solution and making changes that would ultimately fix the problem.
Fun Author Tip: go back into your old posts and share them via social media!
One of my favorite speeches of all time was the Inaugural address of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. He said many things, but to me, the lines that stuck the lines that I recall oft are “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” That drives me back to the last couple of days, talking about building SEO for posts using titles and tags. Are there other things authors can do to increase the views of their posts. One of the things I have been doing is sharing old posts over the last month or so. During that time, I have learned a lot of interesting things about old posts. So a new offer from me. In the comments of this post, share a post you are proud of. I will read it and promote it.
