All about Blogging and Online Media—Tips for Memoir Writers
I know that most of you have heard teleseminars and webinars about building your platform. Some of you are excited about that idea and others of you groan at the mere thought. A million ideas go through your mind, and then you are so tired, you lay down to take a nap.
Don’t despair! There is a simple solution that can be very down home and not stressful: start your own blog.
The reason your own blog is a good idea is that it belongs to you—and it’s in your voice. When you write a memoir, one of the biggest and most powerful assets you have is your voice—your ideas, writing style, and your message. You can start putting your message—your themes—out into the world this week by learning to write short blog posts and convey your voice and your passion.
Learn more about this with our upcoming NAMW member teleseminar presenter Stephanie Chandler.
She’s going to talk about how to reach a bigger audience and what to do with feeling overwhelmed. Join us as we discuss how to leverage blogging—both your own and others—along with some simple social media tactics that can help drive traffic to your website and build your fan base. This session will teach you all the basics so that you can build a bigger platform without spending a ton of time (really!).
