Let’s Be Honest

18 Sep

lets be honest

Let’s be honest, I never expected to come this far with my blog. My personal blog barely gets any reads so I never expected my professional one to be any different. But, here I am today.

Let’s be honest, all 5,270 of my subscribers were once very sceptical about my blog. None of you were dead sure you would enjoy my writing and some of you have considered of leaving. But, I’m glad all of you stayed.

Let’s be honest, you guys bring my blog to life as much as I do. So thank you, for being here and supporting my endeavours. I am not the best blogger in the world, certainly not the best writer either, but you guys are the best readers out there. I know, that’s a bias statement. I’m sure other writers have awesome readers too, but I’d like to think mine are the best. Thanks for being the best!

Let’s be honest, I was just trying to be creative with this post. But, it’s not really working in my opinion. Haha!

Anyway, speaking of honesty I’ve decided to try out something new.

I’ve been on this blogosphere long enough to have stumbled across a lot of book blogs and it’s so strange how it never dawned on me to approach any of them. Maybe… I was scared of being bashed? Well, fear is out of the door today.

From this day onwards, I will be on the look out for book bloggers and those who are willing to do honest reviews in exchange for a free e-book. I’m taking this step to improve my writing through constructive criticism and as a way to scatter my name across the World Wide Web. I’m pretty sure some of you are book bloggers too, so if you’re interested, drop me an email at jeynagrace on Gmail.

The books that I’m opening for reviews are:
– Raindrops
– The Battle For Oz: Exitium (which is already free)
– All my future novels including the upcoming ones, The Prince and The Battle For Oz novel.
– The second edition of Dream World: The Lost Child, which will be out in January next year.

My first novel is not on this list, but I don’t mind you doing a comparison of my first and latest novel; I know it’s not up to par with the rest of my works so I don’t want to wave it around. I’m not ashamed of it, in fact I’m glad I wrote it, but it is rather amateurish. I’m just being honest.

Honesty is the best policy, right?

Well, that is all for this ‘thank you’ post. Thanks again for your readership and continue being the best readers out there. I’m honestly happy to have your support and I truly appreciate it. Thank you!

( P.s., I’ll be taking a break for a week, so there will be no post next week. But, I will be back with something awesome! The new project I talked about in my last ‘thank you’ post will be starting then 🙂 It’ll be fun, I promise!)

    Honesty is the best policy! Wow, after reading your post, I was really encouraged to keep going with mine. It’s not an overnight process to get so much support. But I enjoy what I do so the journey is worth it. Keep up the great work – I look forward to reading more of your posts!

      I’m glad this was encouraging. It is definitely not an overnight process but it is not impossible 🙂 Thank you, and I hope you will enjoy my future posts!

    I’ve been brain storming possibly writing a book as well. I have a completed Prologue with just a tiny bit of the first chapter done. Guess it wouldn’t hurt to throw it on the web, huh?

      Nope, it wouldn’t hurt at all! You can definitely get some good feedback by doing so. No one can plagiarize you either, because it’s only a prologue 🙂 All the best with your book!

        Did you start here as well?

          I started practicing here, but I actually finished my first novel before starting this blog. Sometimes, I would use this space to share teaser chapters of my books 🙂 I find blogs to be a great place to practice and grow in writing.

    Hey Jeyna! You just received another reader! Writers supporting other writers right? 🙂 Anyway thank you for the comment earlier, I’m pretty fresh to this whole blogging thing and getting my writing out there, so if you have any tips that would be great! By the way your site looks AWESOME, hoping to either figure out wordpress a little more so I can upgrade mine as well or find someone who could do it for me. I got my BA in Creative Writing so I’m hoping to make it in the writing world as well, but in travel haha. I’ll be looking forward to reading your work! Good luck with all this!

      Hi! Why, thank you for visiting my blog! I really appreciate it 🙂
      Tips? Hmmm, I always tell those who ask the same thing; be yourself, visit other blogs, and be consistent with posting.
      Thank you for the compliment! I did not upgrade my site actually, I just explored wordpress and made used of all the free widgets. Take your time to learn the ropes and you’ll be able to customize it to your liking.
      All the best in your dream! Thank you again and I hope you enjoy what you find here 🙂
