In today’s Blogger Spotlight, we’re shining a light on Benjamin X Wretlind who writes books, does art and photography but also has a blog. His blog features short stories, articles on Kindle Vella, a regular newsletter and much more!
What made you get into blogging?
What’s your most successful post?
I wrote a three-part series recently explaining what I knew about Amazon’s Kindle Vella (What is Kindle Vella?) and tried to answer the most common questions I’d heard in writers’ groups and online. I think the recency of the platform–which allows authors to serialize novels and publish things quickly–made those posts a little more successful than any of the others. In the two months since I wrote the series, the visitation was higher than the next highest post written in 2018.
What’s been your biggest uphill battle with blogging?
What are you most proud of about your blog?
What one tip would you give to people looking to start a blog?
It’s not a sprint. Building a following, getting the SEO right, advertising–these are all things that take time. Don’t give up after a year or two and say no one is listening. Even if you get through to one person who needs to hear what you have to say, you’re a success.
