Guess what? July 9th marks this site’s 7th birthday! 😮
Now that the blogoversary is one month away, I’m starting to think about how to celebrate it. Yet I keep running into the same hurdle: I don’t know what to choose.
So, like with last year’s blogoversary, I’d like your feedback on how we should celebrate this year. I have a couple ideas, but I’m open to your suggestions, too.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
A Character Interview with Nomaro of My As-Yet Unwritten Novella?
Character interviews have been a fabulous way of helping me get to know my characters better. However, the overall reception to these posts has been “hit or miss.” Last year’s interview with Eva, my protagonist for The Keeper’s Curse, received a lot more interest than the interview with Aurek Kolsteg (also from TKC) this past March.
Personally, I’d love to interview Nomaro, one of the protagonists for a novella I’m planning to write. (You can read about him here and here.) But I’ll consider other options if readers would prefer something else.
Giveaways are always fun, especially since readers can benefit from them. 🙂 But I held one in April… so, is it too soon to have another one? If not, what kinds of bookish or writerly prizes would you like to see? Or would the past prizes (free book from The Book Depository, first chapter critiques) suffice?
Would You Like to Interview Me? (*gulp*)
I’ve seen other blogs celebrate their anniversaries by giving readers the chance to ask questions about the bloggers themselves. This option makes me a little nervous… but that might be my super-shy, super-modest side coming out. If enough readers would like this option, I’d be willing to try it.
