Prompt #8 – Quora

Checking out Quora

It’s day 8 of the Author Blog Challenge. Today’s prompt is:

Are you using Quora? If you aren’t familiar with it, Quora enables users to ask questions and receive answers from those who allegedly know something about the topic. This is a phenomenal way to demonstrate your expertise – and even if you’re a novelist, you have an area of expertise – perhaps it’s simply “publishing your novel.” Unfortunately, it seems you’re required to have an account before you can dig around – UNLESS you know a person’s profile link. Here are two you can check out:

Yes – I just put myself on par with Seth Godin! Here’s your challenge: What’s the one question you would like to find an expert to answer? And conversely, what’s the one question you would feel most comfortable/confident answering? If you’re on Quora, please be sure to give us your link

To be honest, I hadn’t heard about Quora before this prompt, so I checked it out. If you want to follow me, you can find me here.

So far, it looks a bit like the questions in LinkedIn, however it looks like there are a lot more topics. I have followed topics to do with writing and publishing as well as adding information about where I’ve lived and what I know about. Filling this in has been a lot of fun, although the schools I’ve attended aren’t in the list.

Because of the timing of this post, I haven’t looked around as much as I would like, however I’m planning to look around a bit more. I’m also looking forward to reading about the experiences of others and getting some tips on using this resource.

  1. I hadn’t hard of it either. I created a profile and followed you:) I have to take time over the weekend to check out the site more.

  2. I had never heard of it before this prompt either. Now following you, and I commented on one of your answers. Only time will tell how much I’ll actually end up using this, but it’s got me intrigued for now.

  3. I gave you a follow 🙂 I’ll be poking around Quora over the weekend. I’m interested to see what all it has to offer, too! WRITE ON!

  5. I hadn’t heard about it, really don’t think I have the time. Catching up on reading blogs is hard enough!
