Hello Good People
By ‘she’ I mean, of course, Smiley, or as I also refer to her, ‘She Who Must Be Obeyed’.
One of the problems I have (and still do) is a lack of involvement with you good people. It’s one-way traffic, with my stuff going out and nothing coming back. We’re still working on that.
Today I received an email from Smiley, with a statistical breakdown on my efforts/returns on Amazon-Kindle. Here are a few stats you might be interested in:
903 views to my blog site since it started: 588 in 2012; 282 in 2013 and, up to this point in 2014 – 33. Note the dive between 2012 and 2013. L
5 ‘Comments’ in since it all kicked off. I haven’t seen them so far.
60 ‘followers’. I didn’t know, but an email goes out every time I write a blog. That’s nice! J
Sales of the ‘books’ are sloooowwww. L It’s the advertising that they’re on Amazon-Kindle. I don’t have the funds to splash out on promotions. I know how Vincent (as in Van Gough) felt …. and I’ve still got both ears. Maybe I should lob something off!!
The strange thing is my writing is all but over. Will be by the end of this year. In truth, so often the actual journey is all. The arrival is just the end result. Certainly not money in my case! L
I think, from a professional point of view (as a Therapist/Counsellor), The Mind’sFlight is the one. At the time Smiley composed the email, the Mind’sFlight website ‘hits’ had reached 9,879. That’s not bad, considering it’s a genuine therapy tool and not entertainment. Once the figure reaches 10,100, I will begin to try and find out who’s making use of it. Also, of course, it’s FREE. The website address is www.mindsflight.net
Well, peeps, that’s it for the moment. Have a great Easter, have fun with a bunny and I’ll catch you after …… Easter, that is!
All the best.
