Staying in touch with your followers
Keeping your followers up to date on your activities is a great way to build a loyal fan base. FictionPad provides you with easy ways to stay in touch with your followers.
Send a message to your followers
If you have an announcement or other information you’d like everyone who follows you (as opposed to one of your stories) to see, create a new blog post. All of your followers will see this post on their What’s New page and, if they are so configured, will receive an email notification as well.
To create a new blog post, click on the New link at the top of any page
and choose New Blog Post from the menu that appears.
Send a message to your story’s followers
When you republish a story, you’ll be prompted to add an author’s note that the story’s followers will see when they receive the notification that a story they are following has been updated.
If you want to send a note to all the followers of a story without republoishing it:
- Open the story.
- Click on the Options button at the top of the page.
- Choose Add Note from the menu that appears.
