THEN GATHER ‘ROUND! I was thinking to myself, something I do up to two times a day (don’t want to have an aneurysm), that it would be cool if there was a page link at the top of my blog with the homepages of other storytellers. The only criteria is that you write and post your own short stories on your blog. Simple as that.
If you think that’s a good idea, drop your homepage in the comment section and I’ll copy paste it into the page link. Feel free to add other information too, like what genre you typically write or anything else you feel might be relevant. It might help drive some traffic to your site and if all else fails will be a permanent reminder to visit your blogs 🙂
Consider this a trial to see if it takes off, and if there is enough interest to warrant having the link, I’ll make it permanent. The page tab will be called something much better than this makeshift monstrosity, ‘Talented WordPress Storytellers’, but something to that effect, something snazzier.
*Jim Noonan raises a good point. What do I consider a short story? Generally anything much less than 300 is micro fiction. Flash fiction is anything under a 1000 words (depending on who you ask). So the loose criteria is if you write over 300 word stories you ‘qualify’. There’s no upper limit but as most will testify, anything much over 2500 words and you’ll have few readers. But there’s no definitive laws or logic of WordPress.
