I haven’t been using Twitter much so I wasn’t surprised last week when Twitter stocks dropped over reports of growth problems. I didn’t like Tweeting “read my book, read my blog” and I really hated that being the only thing I read on Twitter from the authors I followed. I tried to do comments on what was going on in my life, but then life got busy.
But I went on Twitter today and saw someone tweeting about their blog post about crowd sourcing your writing. I can’t find the link right now, of course, but the gist of the thing was that this would give you money to publish and a built in audience. Huh?
Okay, I can see where, if you were sick and needed money for some expensive treatment, crowd sourcing might be okay. Alternatively, I can see it, if you invented the next great thing-a-majig. But your book?
Tell me what you think! Could you do this?
