I know most of us do by sharing it on facebook, twitter, bookmarking sites and all. How do you promote your work??
I comment in other blogs and on other sites. I seldom share my own links on Twitter, instead I post information, have conversations and give myself a real presence - just like a real person rather than a spambot.
I hope I'm not butting in by asking another question, but how do you find good blogs to comment on? I am horrible at promoting my work. I generally just share my Hubs with friends on Facebook.
I too have a blog (nothing special, for silly talks and for promtion). People visit to my blog and comment, in return I go to their blog and comment and follow if they interest me. Then I find someone from their blog and go to their blog and comment and like this the chain continues. Through twitter also. People with blogs, websites do place the link at their twitter account. If you don't have a twitter account, you can create one and start tweeting your hubs and other articles over there. Try to get more followers. Even after promoting your work, it takes a bit time to your traffic to grow.
I don't have a method to finding blogs to comment on. I just look at a lot of blogs and leave comments when I find someone who interests me. I don't look at the blog for popularity/ traffic first. A good blog is a good blog because they have something to say and I want to read more.
Good question. I don't really but probably should. I usually just try to interact alot and hope a percentage of folks will be curious. I also like to throw some outlandish crap out and see who bites. Humor grabs more than anything else it seems.
Are you referring to interacting on the hubpages site?
Although leaving comments or posting on the forums may have a slight effect (through internal backlinks), other hubbers, as a rule, do not click adverts.
I promote my online work with more online work, plus I occasionally refer a friend to my sites. I have blogs and I have one authority site and a number of Wordpress sites, some with my own domain names.
It can run into a lot of work, but I am online in part to earn extra income, so I write a lot of articles to feed traffic to my money sites.
I don't often write just for the fun of it, but would like to do a fun book someday.
I sneak up to hookers and tap them on the back and say, "Hey, how much for a, you know, something cool?"
What they don't realize is that, while I was tapping them on the back, I was really taping a paper on their back that says, "Buy my book, it's awesome." I have a link and a QR code to my book site on the sign too. It's sort of like that old "kick me" sign joke from grade school but much more mature and focused on capitalistic principles.
I admit sometimes it gets awkward when they start listing the menu of services and, you know, stretching fabric to give me visual samples of menu wares, but, I always throw up a terrified look and run away after that. So, I'm golden.
I think selling science fiction and fantasy to pimps, johns and other whores is a solid marketing tactic. I mean, who else on earth needs a vision of a better world, right? Plus, everyone knows pimps have lots of money to spend.
for some reason I found twitter, and facebook don't really do anything. The more I write and write people just find it through google search, or hubpages. I do write on others hubs, but I do play secondlife a lot too, where I go to a lot of open mic groups, writing groups, and just walking where ever I am, people find it on my proflie on their. But I realise not everyone is a gamer, and don't go on there. Just feel for myself there are to many opportunities meeting people on there.
The social media of Facebook and Twitter are the optimal way to promote online written work. Using hashtags (#) placed before keywords will garnish more internet traffic when using Twitter to promote work. Get in the habit of communicating online using a popular URL of an article written on hubpages. It is not considered spamming to leave the URL in the comment block of the website as long as the topic is relevant to the hubpage article.

Why is there no longer an option to share Hubs on Twitter? It looks like it's been replaced with Flipboard, which seems like a weird choice.
