Sequels on AR?
I mean those posts like “Selling your house. Part 1. Preparing your house for sale”. Then #2, #3, etc. There is nothing wrong with writing about preparing the house for sale. However, the author has wrong expectations. Betting on readers (customers) devouring them in certain succession is what I call wrong expectation.
It is simply the nature of the beast called blogging.
When you blog, do not expect, that your readers would be making those connections to you previous blog posts, even if you insert the links for their convenience, unless this is something extraordinary, tempting and powerful…
If you are not Lenn Harley, Patricia Kennedy, Margaret Rome or some other bloggers extraordinaire on AR, don’t… But the funny part is that all those effective AR bloggers I mentioned and didn’t mention here do not do sequels.
Because they understand the nature of the beast called blogging…
It is like flying on a plane, and striking a conversation with a person next to you, who you see first time in your life. You are telling an interesting story, but the plane reaches the destination, and you promise the rest of the story next time.
Finish your story. The chances for this next time are smaller than winning a lottery.
P.S. And if your story made you, guys, get back together, congratulations, you got yourself a spouse :)
