  2. Thanks for visiting, Johanna. If I may be so bold as to give you a word of advice.

    Posting a Comment on another blog and leaving your URL is a great way to get some traffic back to you.

    I'm sure your book is excellent. However, it's best to refrain from posting a hard-sell blurb about your book. That usually gains you the kind of attention you don't want.

    If you're the author of the book, this won't help you. If you're being paid to post comments, these kind of comments usually get deleted by most bloggers.

    I'm easy though. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and leave your comment.

    Best wishes,
