Writer's Dilemma: Self-Promotion

I'm not shy. But I do dislike self-promotion. It seems boastful and that seems wrong.

But, if I want people to read my stories (or my blog), I need to let them know I'm here. And I'm the only one who can do that.

Maybe it's my age, but it seems wrong to wave a flag and say "Look what I did!"

But, if I don't, who will?

I still don't like it, but I've decided to take a different approach. Instead of thinking of it as self-promotion, I've decided to think of it as getting to know others in my community. And I'm bold enough to think that others in the community will be glad to know me.

I hope I'm right.


  1. Hi Celeste,

    Now that Bonnie has added you to her blogroll, you'll have plenty of visitors without having to promote yourself.


    1. kidding! My page views have gone through the roof. I hope I can write something worthy! Plus, I have a whole new group of blogs to check out myself. There's just not enough time in the day!


I love getting feedback. Thank you for taking the time to comment!
