Writerville was registered in 2006.
I built a writer support blog on Writerville and maintained it for a few years. However, it never gained any traction, and I have since deleted it.
The world of publishing has been turned on its head in the last few years.
In some ways, it has never been easier to become a published author. With print on demand, you don’t have to buy 5,000 copies of your own book and then hope you can sell them. You can publish to Kindle and get paid if your work sells.
Of course, there is a lot of competition too. Getting your work noticed and attracting buyers is hard.
Success these days requires more than being a talented writer.
You to market your work. That is a skill set which is not common with writers.
I bought Writerville.com thinking it was a good name for a community of writers to share tips & support each other.
I built a nice website and wrote what I thought were some good articles, but it never gained traction and I moved on to other things.
