Is a “Personal Relationship” with Authors What Readers Want?


I stumbled across this blog post from another site I love – The Passive Voice
I spent my time reading the article nodding my head and muttering, “Yes, yes exactly!”
I don’t want to invade your life. I don’t want you to invade mine. I want to write interesting things that the people stumbling across my blog will enjoy reading.

My mailing list doesn’t market, it forwards what I post which is 9 times out of 10 new fiction with occasional things like this.

I hope I never annoy you if you’ve joined my mailing list, I want to write things you’ll enjoy, not invade your private space.

You really should click through to this article, it’s a good read – Ed
Is a “Personal Relationship” with Authors What Readers Want?

by Anne R. Allen

The latest trend in online marketing is building a “personal relationship” with customers and readers. Sending newsy emails about your fab summer vacation isn’t enough anymore. Now you have to ask them about their fab summer vacations.

This is supposed to let readers know you really care about them.

Does it?

Speaking as a reader, that would be a…not so much.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any
    methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    I’ve no way to protect against text content being stolen, and frankly, it’s not worth the headaches to try to track it down. Somehow I doubt that many people are stealing from ME, my name isn’t exactly Stephen King. For images, your best safety net is watermarks or your own site info placed on the photo in a location that makes it impossible to remove it without destroying the image. That way even if it is stolen it’s obvious who was the content creator and the pirates will be inadvertently advertising for you.
