I’ve often wondered what to do on my blog on Saturdays. When I was first getting started I didn’t blog on the weekends. But like all beginning bloggers I was pretty obsessed with my numbers, with the statistics and analytics and metrics and I hated to see my visitors disappearing on the weekends.
Eventually I started my Sunday curated link posts, but Saturday stayed up in the air.
Now I’m really excited, because I hit on something that seems just right. A video blog Q & A. I grabbed a question out of my inbox and answer it in this 6:41 video (with the help of a blog post on the topic).
If you have a question you’d like me to address next week, leave it in the comments. I think this could be fun. (If you can’t see the video, please reload or refresh the page.)
Discussed in this video:
- Book metadata and why it’s so important for self-publishers
- Discoverability in online search
- Why you should know about annotation
- Strategy tips for filling out boring forms
- Book marketing hidden in Bowker’s Books in Print Database
