From Zero to 15’000 – Some Thoughts on Building Community…


= Love

A wonderful post about Community from James Radcliffe, talking from the heart and soul just like his beautiful music! I wanted to share this because I can relate with it and because it is very motivational and inspiring!

Have a great Sunday!

One of the most frequent things I get asked is: ‘How did you build your following?’.

It’s a fair question.  A few years ago I started as everybody does, with pretty much zero support and 5 followers (2 of which were my mother who had signed up twice to make sure she didn’t miss anything).

Today I am a 100% audience-supported artist; I have a blog that is read in 170+ countries by a community of over 15’000 subscribers, and a Twitter following that is sitting somewhere around 66k.

How did this happen?

  3. Nice one on the reblog > excellent! What it’s shown me is exactly where I’m at right now. I started my blog years ago but WP is blocked here in China. Although I had a VPN it was always being hit by the Great Firewall so getting used to blogging was really difficult. After that I went back to the UK but found nothing of real interest to blog about so it went kinda flat. Hey presto now I’m back in China I discovered a miraculous VPN site which loads up the moment I start up my computer.So far it seems unbreakable > touch wood. Its also meant that I can really start to enjoy what blogging is all about. Cheers for sharing this Caroline as I’d never have seen it otherwise. Inspirational!

How is to live your life in China? Big difference from UK 😉 I am also out my native country I am from Italy now in USA from 13 years.

      • Hiya Carolina > Well for one thing there are no bills and therefore no stress so that’s a big plus for a start. Actually I went back to the UK for 2 years but was overwhelmed with the cost of living so here I am back in a world where you can bliss out at any moment. Sounds like you’ve been away from Italy for roughly the same amount of time. How’s the States compare?
