As of today, my NON blog officially topped 100 followers! It took almost nine months, or 34 weeks. Of course, the contests were the tipping point. In April, when I ran my first contest, the blog still had a mere 17 followers (which at the time I was happy with and thought was a lot, especially considering that the number of unique visits per week was then predicably around 60-90). Six weeks after the first contest, NON broke the 50-follower mark. It took almost twice as long to get another 50 followers (though weekly hits rose to anywhere from 120-200 visits). Next goal: 200!
Thank you to all who follow and to all who spread the word about NON! I really appreciate it, and so will future interviewed debut authors!
