So far this month, the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette has gotten 16, 625 hits.
Hello, bloggers everywhere. It’s the Old Soldier with another report from the blogging front. No, I will not be talking about Twitter. But I will be talking about social media. Blogging is very much a part of social media and online marketing. I know some of you have blogs.
I use my blog mainly to send traffic to my Triond content.
Recently, the blog took off after I started adding photos of female nude celebrities to some of the post. That was really a painful lesson for me to learn about blogging, about catching the attention of the public. My blog is a niche blog. It is about flash fiction and writing flash fiction. I have a MFA in writing. But before I added the photos, the blog seldom got 100 hits a day. After I added the photos, well, the blog has gotten over 16,000 hits so far this month. The lesson was very humbling; but, more people are clicking on the links to Triond than ever before. The following is a list of the titles that are on the front page as I write this. The above photo is some of my old amateur work shot with a disposable camera. It is one of the more tame photos on the blog. It gets a lot of hits.
My blog is the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
