    • Well, it took me more than 5 years to get to this point, so I don’t have any quick tips.
      Kiri, I really like your blog. You write about stuff I love. Your photos that illustrate your posts are genius. Most of your posts have at least 15 likes. You interact with your commenters. I don’t see you doing anything wrong. The only suggestion I have, and I don’t know if it would affect your readership numbers or not, is, do you have a presence on social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram? If you do, do you post a link to your current post on your social media? There are lots of reasons not to get involved with social media (big time suck, for instance), but maybe choose one to explore?

      • Thank you for your kind words. I’ll admit, I never write for any audience but myself, so I don’t do it for the followers. (Except you of course, I would write for the discerning and appreciative, always!) I have a Facebook page where my posts automatically are published. But, I could start posting a link on my personal page again. I tend not to think past that ‘Grateful I got that thing out of my head and onto the screen’ moment. But nothing will get me to enter the TwitterVerse–except, again, for good things people do there–there is too great a chance of mental contamination from the unwashed and unthinking hordes. I hope you wear a protective layer if and when you enter the sphere of bile known as Twitter. May the odds be ever in your favor! (Hunger Games reference. Hopefully you enjoy YA fiction as much as I do. If not, enjoy the sentiment without the gruesome context.)
