Let me encourage you to send your stories out. Of course, you can publish your stories on your own blog but anyone can do that. Self-publication is easy. It’s only when someone else puts in the time to read your story and to publish it on his or her site can you begin to think that the story has more than personal sentimental value. Plus, you get a link back to your own site that will bring you more traffic.
I’ve been fortunate to have several of my stories published by other online publishers. Unfortuately, only two are still up and running and going strong. They’re both good ones. Just go to Word Riot www.wordriot.org and Word Catalyst Magazine www.wordcatalystmagazine.com and punch in my name, Guy Hogan, into their search boxes. I had one story accepted by Word Riot and several accepted by Word Catalyst Magazine.
Publishing your own stories is a great feeling, I know, but knowing someone else wants to publish your stories is an even better feeling.
I’m sure you know that the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette has a Call For Submissions tab at the top of the page, too.
