My love/hate relationship with George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novels started with “The Game of Thrones” I love being so shocked and scared that I almost can’t continue reading and I love how his words set my imagination on fire. I hate his books because once I start, I can’t put them down. I’m like a woman possessed until I finish and then I hate that it’s ended.
Even though blogging isn’t anything like writing a book… I’d like my posts to be just as compelling as George Martin’s novels and to have as loyal and committed a following as he has. Someone who has built up a very loyal blog following in just over a year is Kimberly Gauthier of Keep the Tail Wagging, a blog about her three dogs, herself and her fiancée.
Kimberly was one of the guest speakers at the July 2013 Seattle WordPress Meetup. She talked about her blogging journey and learning through trial and error. She showed us how she developed her blogging voice and her community of intensely loyal and committed readers.
