"Where's My New Episode?"

by Anne Flournoy


1.12.13 The project that feels like my life's work, The Louise Log, has been in production for over five years. There are thirty-four episodes online and we have a growing number of enthusiastic fans.

But alas, in the bigger scheme of things, we are virtually under the radar. Until last fall I was operating under the delusion that if you 'make good work and put it out there' that 'the cream would rise'.  

Generous friends and collaborators tried to guide and encourage me to focus on getting the word out.  But being 1) very hard-headed and 2) more interested in producing episodes than on learning marketing, until last October, almost nothing had been done to promote this series.  

To rectify the situation, the uploads are on hiatus for a little while longer while I'm immersed in figuring out how to get The Louise Log in front of its audience. The focus seems to be paying off with hundreds of new fans and even requests for interviews and meetings.

A longer post, written in the throes of my revelation of this necessary shift, details what you can do if you want to help.  Thanks for reading.  Thanks for watching and for anything else you do to help us to spread the word.
