I n s e c u r e - I was certainly feeling insecure when I attached my first Blog Hop Linky to a recent post!

To update those who don't visit every day, I posted a cover art reveal over the weekend for my second book in the Protector Series.

Don't get me wrong, many people have left wonderful comments and I am thankful to everyone who has. No I am talking about the 'feeling'!  The feeling you get just before you open the web page to see if anyone has joined the link.

I decided to take the plunge and ask for help with the release in October....

And I have never felt so vulnerable in my life.  Every day I have opened the post to find a blank Blog Hop Linky and my insecurity was overwhelming. 

It really is a hard thing to do. I bet some of you will remember the first time you ventured in this direction with a Linky and have experienced the 'feeling' for yourself, others have  probably forgotten that 'feeling', (lucky them!)

Today when I opened the post I actually had two names added to the link and I don't feel so vulnerable anymore! 

A big thanks to those special two and if I have tempted you to join, here is the link.

It's early days yet and lots of people are glued to the Olympics, on vacation, involved with various blog challenges etc. But they will come through... just wait and see!

Kyra Lennon said...

Aw, I didn't see your post but I've signed up now! The best time - in my experience - to post a Linky Link for an event is on a Monday, when everyone is fresh from the weekend and ready to blog again! :D

Ciara said...

C.M. ~ I don't usually blog on weekends so I'm glad you mentioned it here. I'm off to join your link. :) I'm thinking about doing a linky for my upcoming release, but so scared to put that up on my blog. You are brave, and as it gets closer, mention it again. Off to join. :)

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks for the support Michelle. I am starting to feel better!

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks for this advice Kyra, I will keep it in mind for next time. It is a learn as you go process with each step! Thanks for signing up!

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks Ciara, it definitely is a scary process!

Damyanti said...

Signed up on your list. Need anything else that I can help with, let me know.

Tonja said...

I signed up. It's a very good day to post about it. I know exactly that feeling of vulnerability. It's like throwing a party and no one shows up.

Julie said...

Oh, I admire you for doing this! I haven't done anything like this before and I know my insecurity would be through the roof if I tried. Kudos to you for taking this step, I'm off to add my link to your list! :)

Cherie Reich said...

It's always scary to put up one of those linky lists and just wait for the first person to sign up. After that, it seems much easier. Keep mentioning it. That way if people missed it the first time, then they'll eventually know about it. :)

M.J. Fifield said...

I didn't see that post before but I am signed up now. I've never done a blog hop linky thing but I can just imagine the feeling you're talking about.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Did I miss that post????

C.M.Brown said...

Thank you so much, it is very nice of you to offer.

C.M.Brown said...

I've been there and done that before too!

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks Julie!

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks so much for the support Cherie and the advice.

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks M.J.

C.M.Brown said...

You left a very supportive comment pledging support for October and that was definitely fine Alex, don't feel guilty!

J. A. Bennett said...

If I wasn't having a baby I would totally join, but I understand that feeling. It's happened to me more than once!

Gwen Gardner said...

Awwww, let me go find that blog hop button! I'm sure the word will get out and it will be a success:)

Krista McLaughlin said...

I missed it too! I'd love to help! :)

Stephen Tremp said...

I just signed up for your Blog Hop. I'll post something in my side bar as the date approaches and make you Author of the Week. Good luck to you and He Came For Me!

Michael Pierce said...

I haven't put up a Linky yet, and I'm petrified of that, too.

Colleen Chen said...

I totally missed it the first time!!! I think you should post about it at least a couple more times because posts do get buried in blog rolls. I'm psyched to help spread the word about your beautiful book!

C.M.Brown said...

What a special moment for you, all the best with your bundle of joy to come!

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks Gwen!

C.M.Brown said...

Thank you Krista.

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks Stephen, you are the best!

C.M.Brown said...

Yes, it is a really scary experience, but I am feeling better now!

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks for the support Colleen and I will follow your great advice!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I'll help you!

C.M.Brown said...

Thank you L. greatly appreciated!
