At long last I finally did it, I am becoming an active part of the WattPad community!
…Not using the forums though, those can bite one. Ok that is a little harsh, I will try and use them again at some point in the future, but they are too much for a new user to get their head around, at least with any hope of attracting readers that is.
Instead I have joined a few Discord communities, and I’m up 7 followers in one night, so that isn’t too bad at all. We will see how many readers that converts to, but it’s a start. I am glad I took the time to get it done at last, having been far too burned out to focus on that up until this point. I have to work on that and keep this momentum up.
Mt goal should be to have a small pool of regular readers I can cultivate, then to build on those by encouraging them to share my work with their own friends too. It’s going to take time, but today was a big step forward to be sure.
