…look what they’ve done to my Blog, Ma…

…most of my corporate life (yes, Mabel, I did have a parallel existence before being ensnared in Author-dom) spun around numbers… figures… statistics… and it’s well said elsewhere there are Lies, damn Lies, and Statistics… so forgive my wee focus today on what to me are mind-boggling facts about the growth of my SOSYAL NETWURK outreach… now, listen up, at the back there, Lads and Lassies of Blog Land… this affects all of we quill-scrapers seeking to build the platform… five and a bit years ago, the extent of my SOSYAL MEDYA exposure was a mere coupla hundred connections on LinkedIn and about 300 email addresses… now, just look what they’ve done to my Blog, Ma… I was told (recommended/instructed/ordered/commanded) that having an Author’s Blog was key for maintaining visibility in the readership marketplace… and how true that has proven… y’see, if yeez so choose, the Blog gets connected automatically to all yer other channels… doubt it?… let me quote yeez the figures, the Blog itself has been alive since May 2012, so coming up to only its third anniversary… the stats page tallies thus :

…Posts                   1,155

…Views                61,600

…Comments      10,300

…that means connectivity… relationships established and maintained… friendships made and solidified… LUVVIN IT!

…and the outreach?… have a peek at this:

…Twitter                 7,485

…Facebook             1,613

…Goodreads          3,665

…the Blog itself    1,081

…LinkedIn             4,340

…Google+               2,490


…Total                   20,674

…that’s 20,674 direct connections, which when yeez extrapolate (fancy WURD for ‘WURK out’, Mabel, WURK out) and multiply into the delta from ReTweets, Facebook Shares, Google+ shares, and so on, gets to numerals that just blow yer mind… yeez are into the gazillions…


…I hope this gives yeez at least a smattering of how powerful Uncle Internet truly is, especially for we peons of the pen, looking to find an audience for our Literary Voices… so, in the more polite version of the WURDS of the prophet, writers—go forth and multiply!… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
