#SFF #Bloggers is now live!
Posted On July 3, 2017
Every once in a while I get a cool idea. And this idea comes from the space of generating more traffic to my blog. But we don’t live in a vacuum. Okay, space is a vacuum and our planet resides in it, but you know what I mean. There is strength in numbers, and as it turns out, traffic too.
So by the sweat of my brow, because it is hot on Connecticut now, I created SFFBloggers.com, an aggregator of Science Fiction and Fantasy blogs. A bunch of my buddies at Fantasy-Writers.org,
drank the cool-aid climbed on board and we’ve got a nice community going on of writers blogging and getting a snippet of their posts automatically uploaded to the aggregator.
And you can too.
That is if you are a science fiction or fantasy blogger.
YOU: Sounds cool, but um, are you charging, like money, for this?
YOU: (incredulously) No? What are you a communist or something?
ME: Let’s not go there. I’m offering something that has almost has no cost to it.
YOU: That’s better. I thought you might be one of those left-wing teary-eyed liberals.
ME: Well, I am. But that’s not the point. All you have to do is link to this blog and the aggregator on your blog page and we’re good.
YOU: That’s it?
ME: Yup. That’s it.
YOU: But, like, how to do you support it. Running a blog costs money.
ME: It’s a promotional expense. I write it off my taxes.
YOU: Oh, I understand now. It’ a tax dodge.
ME: [face palm]
Anyway, if you think it’s cool climb onboard by sending an email to email@example.com. If you are a reader of such, I invite you subscribe to the blog or follow us on twitter or like us on Facebook.
