A good hostess knows how to keep a conversation going. She presents a topic and invites comments.
That’s sort of like what we do as bloggers – unlike authors, whose work is done and separate from their person, a blogger is right in the midst of their creative work. We draw readers in and encourage them to stay and participate. Interact, if you will, with our writing.
Today’s exercise from Robert Brewer’s platform-building challenge hinges on the second half of this relationship.
In which a ‘call to action’ is an opportunity to connect via social media or previous blog posts. Offering readers other ways to engage, beyond this one post that may have randomly popped up in their feed reader. It’s another way of communicating, “Come on in, take your shoes off, have a drink. Make yourself comfortable and tell me about yourself.”
To read more about Robert Brewer’s writing challenge, and how I was enticed to follow along, take a look at my first post on Day 1: Get Back in the Box
I’d love to have you come see me in the Twitterverse, Facebookland, or LinkedInville.
