I heard at a writers conferences that 10,000 was a good number. The question was how many readers need to be in your audience for a major traditional publisher to consider publishing your book. 10,000?!
About that many people attended my former church, and for my original publishing dream to come true, every person in my church would have to like my writing and follow me online. The thought left me breathless.
I started my first blog in one of James Rubart’s marketing classes, and I remember being happy that I had 12 followers after a while. I joined the Facebook and Twitter frenzy pretty late compared to friends my age, and when I reached 300 followers, I did a happy dance on the inside.
