Anyone who follows my blog also know that I host many authors right here.
What I can't understand is why, after either paying someone to set up a blog tour, or just asking someone to host you on a blog, why so many don't bother to promote the blog. I promote everyone who is on my blog on Facebook and Twitter--but there are many more place to do this.
How can I tell when someone doesn't promote? No, I'm not just checking the comment section, but I also can go behind the scenes and look at the stats and see how many people visited.
Speaking of comments, when someone does comment on a post, the featured person needs to respond. I'm shocked at how seldom that happens, especially when I know the person paid money for the blog tour they are on.
I probably drive people nuts when I'm on a blog tour because I promote everywhere I possibly can, Facebook, Twitter, Facebook groups and all the listserves I'm on. Does it help? Sure, I get lots of comments almost everywhere I stop. And believe me I go back and read and respond to everyone.
