A Call To Action

So, I'm working on a book at the moment.  It's all at very early stages, and comes with a hefty proviso of "may never see the light of day" but at this time it's all very exciting, particularly how it gives me another reason to avoid doing unimportant things like doing the washing up or getting a shave.

I need your help.

Except you, Dr Dawg.

Specifically with blog subscriptions!  I will be approaching writing agents in the not too far distant future and part of my sales pitch will be talking about my blog.  I'm aware that there are a committed number of people (thank you, each and every one of you) who do stop by regularly to check out my blog, most people don't currently subscribe, which is absolutely fine of course, nevertheless I'd like just to flag up that if you would like to subscribe you'd be very welcome :) I don't tend to post that frequently so hopefully it shouldn't result in a sea of notifications for you.

If you would like to subscribe then on the right hand side of the page (if you're viewing this on a proper desktop computer that is) there should be options to subscribe by email or to subscribe using an RSS reader, if you use one of these. If you're viewing this blog on a phone or tablet, as about half of people do, if you scroll right down to the bottom of the page there should be an option to "View Web Version" - if you could just do this this one time then the links will be available on the right hand side for you to subscribe.

If, by chance, you've stumbled across this blog and this is your first time, here's a post for you to check out, you'll get an idea of my typical nonsense.

Many thanks to all that do indeed subscribe :)

Now, back to thinking up insults relating to that Ohioan master of blogging, Tim Clark. He's a great man but his dog...

Well to be quite frank, I think his dog is a little out of control.  It's awarded itself a doctorate, tried to become President, I think it's suffering from delusions of grandeur. I think Tim needs to take Dr Dawg to the vet for some sort of procedure, perhaps to be neutered. I don't know if it would make any difference but, for the sake of humanity, it's worth a try.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

  1. What is your book about, Mike? Good luck to you and I hope you land an agent! I am glad I subscribe to you already.

    1. It's essentially a grouping of blog-style articles about anything and everything, my thoughts are they'll be ideal for reading while in the restroom :D thanks Susan!

  2. Me and the dog both need a little serious counseling. I think I have already subscribed. Since I have a couple of email addresses, and I'm not sure why, maybe I will ask the dog, I will use all of them. I can't wait to read your book.

  3. A book for the toilet? I'll have to put up a shelf.

  4. We all seem to be writing novels again at the moment. I'm on my 6th. I keep being told that all authors should try to 'collect' the names of visitors to their websites/blogs to be able to send newsletters and keep them informed and create interest in their work. I am finally giving in and started on working on this approach myself.

    1. Yes, I've been thinking about moving platform to Wordpress so that I've got more plugins and things I can use to track visitors and the like. But I do like Blogger!
