In order to build my reads and following on Wattpad.com, I started offering a critiquing service. It has always been successful. Because of my publications in Chicken Soup for the Soul, I chose the title of “Cup of Soup” for the service. Everyone names theirs, for some reason.
So far I’ve gained over 150 followers. It’s been very successful, except for the jerks who follow me for the critique and then unfollow me. I may change the payment to story comments, since at least they can’t remove those.
I am now approaching 750 followers. I’d like to get my following up to 800 for when I start my next project. Details of that will come soon.
