…Mirror, Mirror on the wall… am I really here at all?… #TBSU…

…over the last wee while, I’ve noticed several Author ‘Facebookies’ complaining to the WURLD at large that, basically, nob’dy LUVS them… the sum’times paralysing constant checking of the Amazon Kindles Sales reports with sparse downloads leaves them utterly bereft… the eternal clamour for Facebook ‘likes’ leaves me bewildered, mainly coz I really don’t understand the need for Facebook ‘likes’… it’s even more apparent to me, despite my dearth of little grey cells, that far too many writers, newbies and established names, expect an avalanche of affirmation merely by throwing their masterpieces onto the internet… a-hem… IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!… IT DOESN’T WURK THAT WAY!... consider this, Lads and Lassies of Blog Land— at my last guesstimation there’s a trillion, squillion new titles being released on the ePublishing channels every fourteen and a half minutes… the sheer volume of timeline traffic on Facebook and the other SOSYAL NETWURKS reduces the odds of yer pleas to the readership universe to have a decko at yer WURK being heard… but, all is not as desperate as it may appear… this ol’ Jurassic’s been banging on for a while now about the efficacy of BUILDING THE PLATFORM... yeez have to develop yer NETWURKS’ relationships… every day, every week, every month… and then maintain and LUV the heck out of them… the measure of ‘success’ differs for each of us, but I still get that fabulous buzz when even one person downloads anything I’ve written, and multiply that buzz if they scribble a review for any of it… it’s called ‘affirmation’… and if we’re honest about it, it’s one of the primary reasons most of us quill-scrape in the first place… to be acknowledged… to know sum’body likes our stuff… but, here’s another wee tip… if Facebook is being unreasonable, tardy or reluctant to show emb’dy on there acknowledging yer greatness, just step over to yer wall mirror… and repeat after me… ‘ye’re a wonderful writer, I LUV yer WURK,‘ … that’ll fix it… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ… mean time, if all else fails, here’s another peek at my SELF-PUBLISHING STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL SALES:

  1. I agree about the Facebook Likes Seumas. Facebook are only promoting posts to a small percentage of your Likers, so the value of Likes has reduced yet further. Anyway that’s my excuse for having virtually no Likes for my new Facebook page! It’s fine, really, I am used to not being loved.

    • …I’ve NEVER understood its purpose (‘likes’ ) but i do click ‘liked’ for those who request it of me.. I hope I’m not becoming part of a secret war against the planet ! 🙂
