Intrigue

Input Intrigue, It's Imperative

Influence the people around you, those that buy your books or read you blog.
Notice that they're coming to you, curiously hoping for something interesting to read.
Take the time to create something fun.
Remember to write what you like, but do it in a way that won't bore your online friends.
It's important to realize and keep in mind what brings you to their attention.
Give and be generous, courteous-write words that make them excited to come back for more another day.
Use your personality, resources, knowledge.
Especially make sure to remember that your online friends are there for you, be there for them by giving them something worth their time.

People read our books and our blogs, they follow us and are loyal. Our online friends are there for us, so make sure to give them something that keeps them interested-if not, what's going to keep them coming back? What will keep them loyal?

Happy Intriguing :)
