It’s difficult for most of us to toot our own horn. Yet, if we want our blog and our blogged book to get read (attract more readers), sometimes doing so becomes necessary.
We also have to learn to ask others to help toot our horn. Especially because when others get involved, the music gets louder and sounds better.
That’s why contests serve writers and bloggers so well. Winning extends the reach of our work, allowing us to touch more readers.
And that’s why today I’m simply asking my loyal blog readers to lend their voices (or horns) to mine. If you enjoy this blog, please take the time to vote for it in two very important contests. Getting on either list would give my blog much more recognition and exposure, which would help me get the information I offer on how to write, publish and promote nonfiction out to more people.
