This is where I post a QUICK WRITING TIP. A writing skill everyone should know. Whether it be technical or creative, useful or not, I'm gonna give it to you! You're gonna be humming the Usher song, "Love In This Club."
Or not. Here's the Quickie for today:
TRACK YOUR STATS!!!
There are several websites that allow you to do this for free. The one that I use is http://statcounter.com/. They provide easy to follow instructions and over a dozen different ways to analyze the effectiveness of your blog/website.
But listen up extra close if you are querying or going on submission. Don't you want to know if the agent of your dreams is checking you out? Wouldn't you like to be informed as to whether an editor at Random House or Amazon Publishing is perusing your site? Couldn't it be extremely helpful to know which pages and posts they are spending time on? The answers to these critical questions and more are a resounding YES!
After I saw that an editor from Scholastic had spent a significant amount of time on my severely lame "ABOUT ME" page, I decided to spend some time improving that MONUMENTAL oversight.
So go get a stat tracker and start stalking the people who are stalking you! Peace!
