So, how are my 10 followers on this wonderful evening? I've been plagued with the worries for the past few days, due in large part to some things I won't get into on here! After all, I don't like going and reading negativity all over everyone else's blogs so I won't cram it down your throats here.
The good news about the past few days is that I've connected with several other bloggers and book promoters in hopes to get my book more publicized! I've gained about 10 more Twitter followers in the past 24 hours and that's not too shabby for me seeing as the first few months of having the Twitter account, I struggled to break 15 followers, including family members! The bad news is, only one of the blogger people have responded about featuring my book. But hey, to see it from the glass is half full standpoint, that's something to go off of! This ebook promotion stuff has become my full time job, even more than being a student and that's not a good thing!
Another good thing that happened today was that I met with my academic advisor and was informed that I'm still right on track to graduate in May of 2012. While it's not exactly the degree I had in mind when beginning my collegiate journey, I still need to find some pride in it. I'll be glad to at least say I have a Bachelors Degree. The worry I have is the job outlook but as the title of this blog reads, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Right now I need to focus on small steps and small goals. Tomorrow is presentation day for me in my Sport in World Cultures class. As they say, public speaking is the number one fear among most people. I'm having mixed emotions about it. One side of me is saying "Jess, you've had a bunch of presentations before, you got this." And the other side is saying, "Jess, you're gonna be in front of everyone! Don't talk fast! Don't let your voice shake! Don't sway from side to side." If only I could get that side to shaddup!
So my focus is solely on the presentation. And then I can say heeeelllloooo to Spring Break! As so many of us have heard before.... baby steps baby steps.... If you look at the big picture it's just going to freak you out. The same is applied to the writing world. Promoting is hard but just remember, one sale is one sale... don't worry about your competition who is selling thousands of books a month. That's not why I'm in it. I'm in it because I LOVE TO WRITE!
Y'all have a great Thursday evening! :)
