Author Buzz UK is not just a networking site for readers and authors, it is also a blogging network. Built using WordPress we are able to offer our members a blog to build their authorial platform.

Why use an Author Buzz Blog?

For authors, blogging provides the best way to connect with fans and potential readers. By using an Author Buzz blog you gain instant access to a growing community of interested readers. Your blog updates will appear in your activity stream alerting followers when you publish an update. That means you will already have a head start over other authors who start off all alone and have to build a following from scratch.

  • Instant audience
  • Reach interested readers
  • Active tech support
  • Community support (forums)
  • Cutting edge SEO and anti-spam plugins
  • Actively maintained
  • Instant legitimacy

How to claim your blog.

We are still in the progress of adding new features to Author Buzz and our hope is to create a fully automated blog creation and setup system. However, for now, our developers will manually set up your blog to ensure that everything is working before we hand you the keys to your new platform.

All you have to do is post a request in the forums and tell us about the new blog you want to create. Then leave the rest to us.

What to do after you claim your blog?

Once you have your blog you can do whatever you think is best with it. We suggest that you post regular updates – at least one a week.

You can also:

  • Easily organise and display your portfolio of books with Novelist
  • Display your progress towards your next novel
  • Create dedicated pages
  • Choose from our range of customised themes
  • Create a dedicated repository of creative writing with WriteShare
  • Schedule posts for later
  • Add additional contributors

Need help with your blog?

It happens to us all. We start something and run into a wall. Not to worry, our growing community are here to help. The fastest help comes from explaining what you are trying to do, what you expected, and what actually ended up happening. That way we have all the basic information to offer you top quality support.

Requesting new themes

Not able to find a theme that you like? Not to worry just head over to Wordress.org and identify which theme you like the look of and our developers will do their best to get that theme added to our library.

If you want to purchase a premium theme there are a couple of technical issues that we need to take into account. Talk to us first and we will try to make that happen for you.
