IWSG Day- What Are You Doing to Drive Traffic to Your Blog?

IWSG badge

It’s that time again. It’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. A day where I and other IWSGers post every first Wednesday of the month. To share and encourage, and talk about our doubts and fears. And our successes. As we continue paving out author’s road on this neverending writing journey. And who do we have to thank for creating this writer’s haven? Founder and creator, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

You can find out more about the group by clicking the badge. And don’t forget to check out this month’s co-hosts: Charity Bradford, S.A. Larsen, AJ, Tamara Narayan, Allison Gammons, and Tanya Miranda!

PS Our hashtag on Twitter is #IWSG
