Thanks again for having me as your guest at the oh-so-cozy Barnes & Noble cafe. Sharing the snowy evening in your company talking about writing and marketing and publishing – three of my favorite topics! As promised, I’ve collected links to some of the resources and references that came up during our free-form chat. I hope you make time to explore some (if not all!) of these great web destinations.
I’ll be in touch soon via email to offer some suggestions for how we might continue a more focused and tactical conversation about blogging, but – for now – enjoy a little online wandering and feel free to reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- The fabulous Justine Musk
- Peter Bowerman (aka The Well-fed Writer) – freelance writer coach and so much more
- Larry Brooks’ Storyfix – everything you didn’t know you needed to know about story structure
- Cloud Coach – starting with the great step-by-step instructions for launching a WordPress blog lickety-split
