I often speak of the great community that can be found amongst book bloggers. I thought for 2013 it would be fun to shine the spotlight on fellow bloggers and encourage the sense of community. If you are a blogger who would like to be featured, I have a form for you to fill out. I want this feature to go beyond just "hey! check out this great blog"; I've asked each blogger to provide a little tip or advice to writers, readers, and/or other bloggers - build community. I hope you enjoy this new feature.
The Blogger: Alison DeLuca
The Blog: Fresh Pot of Tea
Welcome, Alison! Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a writer of YA steampunk fiction as well as an editor for my author collective and a local publishing company.
What will readers find on your blog?
My blog highlights online creativity, with an emphasis on writing. I also chat about being a stay-at-home mom and fulltime writer.
What advice do you have for bloggers and authors?
Social media is great, as long as you keep it social. A fulltime stream of spam turns off prospective readers, followers, and buyers.
That's a great tip, Alison. I heard that 2013 has been declared the year of RELATIONSHIPS by social media leaders, so thank you for the reminder about the proper use of social media.
Here's a glimpse at Fresh Pot of Tea:
