I consider myself still a newby though I have had a blog for nearly a year now and have started a second. In the first, I post blogs, and change a tab page a couple of times a week to provide the next scene in one my novels (I remain unpublished, outside the blogosphere). That seemed to work modestly well and I have a few regularly readers finally (the new science fiction novel seems to have attracted a slightly larger but less consistant audience than the fantasy novel I just finished) but in the process of starting a second blog (with a more "adult" themed novel, included as sortable blog entries, which the other pages lacked and in the absence of tabs), I was reminded how hard it was to get an audience started, and the more adult themes means I am looking for a different audience. Is there any good way to tell people about a new blog, reach a new audience, or should I just sit back and wait and hope key words bring people? (Do key words really do anything?) I'll include links here though it is probably tacky to do so, but is that really the best way to advertise? (So far it's the only way I've found at all).
And what do you think of the general theme of posting scenes to an unpublished book? I've heard mixed reviews on the advisability of it, but so far more positive "build your fan base" than not, and no one to tell me the difference between changing the page (not available after change) and posting it as an archiveable blog. Feedback welcome.
