  4. Oh no, that's quite a lie to tell. But somehow I have a feeling he's actually lying now... I still haven't read anything by Kagawa, but I'll have to get on it! And I hope you have a good holiday later this month! Thanks for sharing :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  14. I'm guessing that he isn't really lying and really DOES want to start over.

  15. So what does he want?

    I've never read any of Kagawa's books but the raves ....!

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
