    Donna,
    I aim my posts to two primary types of readers: Christians, and vision-impaired. Sometimes they are both Christian and vision-impaired or simply Christians who want to see how God helps me in my low vision world. Sometimes I post only to my vision-impaired groups and sometimes I post only to Christian groups. I’m not sure how effective I am. In October, I blogged nearly every day and I think I was doing well. Then I started marketing my memoir and because that took so much time, I dropped down to posting once or twice a week. Now I have to build up my readership again, and hopefully, blogging will help me market my books better. Any tips?
    Thanks so much!

    Hi Donna,
    Thanks for great words. I found this on #ultrablog. So much to remember as a new blogger, I forgot the value on commenting where there’s comment luv, and I never knew the importance of commenting first. I will try and follow.
