So here I am…trying to see if I’ve figured out this whole trackback mystery. My critique group has been trying to build our platforms…HOLY COW is there a lot to learn.
We’ve read books and articles on How to and the Do’s and Dont’s of platforming. I highly recommend Kristen Lamb’s books We Are Not Alone—The Writer’s Guide to Social Media and Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer!!!
We’re taking a class on how to build our platforms (thank you Velda Brotherton and the NWA Writers Group!!)
1. Facebook Author page & invite the world to like us… check
2. Tweet … check
3. Set up blog here on WordPress…check
Now if one of us can figure out how to work the magical trackback we’ll be on to our next challenge…WRITING the stories and books!!
After trying for over a week to master trackbacks…HA…who am I kidding …we’d be thrilled if one of us could get it to work even once.
So I decided to contact the platform building goddess herself Kristen Lamb. It was like getting a wish granted by the genie in the magic lamp…I asked and POOF… I had my answer (only without the big puff of smoke). THANK YOU!! 🙂
I’m going to test this on one of Kristen Lamb’s latest blogs that I learned a lot from.
Fingers crossed…sweat beading up on brow…We’ll soon see if I have been able to tackle trackbacks.
