Once I added the blog to Triberr, readership skyrocketed. I've done all sorts of promotions for authors there to increase that. We have an annual Cancer Awareness week during which authors who have or have had cancer, or have friends / family who have, share their stories of perseverance and encouragement. There's an annual salute to veteran authors. On the first of each month, I present the author who had the most visits with a graphic award and a month of free cover ad space. The annual winner gets a year's worth.
Because I'm always looking for ways to improve, I'm moving the Romance Lives Forever blog from Blogspot to Wordpress on May 17, 2017. If you hate moving as much as I do, you'll be happy to know all the heavy lifting will be done by professionals. Your part will be to grab a favorite drink, sit back, take it easy, and come read the posts in beautiful new surroundings.
Once the move completes, all posts currently on the Blogspot version of Romance Lives Forever will appear on the new site also. On the Blogspot site, a note at the top will redirect readers to the new Wordpress location. Links to the original posts will remain active, and all posts will remain on the Blogspot old blog while also appearing on the Wordpress blog.
Want a sneak peek of the new blog? It's under construction so it doesn't look now the way it will when it opens. But here's a peek: https://rlfblog.com/ Go ahead. I'll wait.
Okay, welcome back! Do you want to know more? Here you go.
On the new site, you'll have a listing of genres so you can find your favorite. Each book will be listed by name, author, and genre. Character interviews will have their own home. As always, you'll be able to leave comments, share posts, and find great books. The new site will be available on Kindle, RSS, email, and other programs.
I'll still post here and on my own blog, but I'll also appear on Romance Lives Forever. I hope you'll bookmark the site and look for the announcement of it opening.
The new URL is rlfblog.com. Why? Because the official hashtag for the site has always been #RLFblog. This makes it even more official.
My sincere thanks to the other Sweet N Sexy Divas who let me come and share every month. I hope all of you will come over to "my house" and do the same!
