Why it's important to write at different sites
There are millions of us that have a blog or a website, but it doesn't and shouldn't stop us from writing at other places too. If you haven't done so, think of perhaps expanding your writing skills at other sites.
I have The Authentic Life Blog
newest post there.
Also today, I have written another post: The Glorious Money Tree Chapter Eleven
I am beginning to progress nicely into the novel and am also looking forward to working some more on The Thief Who Wouldn't Learn. I need to start some new chapters to that one too so I can jog my memory of the storyline and get that one progressing too.
I also write a little bit on other sites. The way I see it is that it is free advertising for my main blog as I always leave a link to that one.
I write posts here, Tumblr, Wordpress, Bloggymoms, Blogaholics, Societyofsocialprenuers and Triond and Wikinut.
And I promote my posts also at Pinterest, Facebook, Linkedin, Linkyfollowers, my FB pages, Pinspire, Stumbleupon and a few other places.
I went back to Triond today and wrote about seven posts.
I'm jay1995 at Triond (due to a typo: I wanted to have it be jfay1995)
I hadn't written there in a while so decided to come back and write some articles there too so I don't have all my eggs in one basket.
Triond isn't a real money maker like people like to think. You don't end up making lots of money. But the reason I write there is because of the community of writers and the good feedback.
I don't earn here either but I come to write sometimes for the community experience and it does sometimes bring a little traffic to my blog.
I like Tumblr's setup and am getting used to figuring out their community. And wordpress is really fun too.
I think posting and having a profile at all these communities does help. It's like free advertising and we all want to gain readers and traffic to our main blogs where we write at daily.
It's important to spend a little time searching all your avenues to figure out where you want to get your readers.
