Happy Monday to all you readers!
I’m continuing the Monday Motivation series and have some great articles for you to read. They’re all brilliant! Take a break, grab a snack, and put everything on hold while you take a few minutes to read each one.
1. How to Sell Loads of Books by Russell Blake, Suspense Writer
This post is exactly what every aspiring and active writer needs to read. Even if you’re traditionally published, there’s so much to learn from it. Russell Blake shares his personal experience in regards to independently publishing his books. He doesn’t beat around the bush and is very honest. Though it’s a longer reader than most blog posts, it’s worth your time. I think I need to read it again myself. I’ve already sent it to all my clients and writer friends.
2. Top 10 WordPress Plugins That You Need To Be Using In 2014 by Jeff Bullas
I love Jeff Bullas’s blog! This is yet another great post on his site, written by Mr. Bullas himself. Since I do all my own IT and design my websites and blogs by myself, I am always on the lookout for advice about everything techy–specifically advice that will make my life easier and my lack of tech skills almost unnoticeable. Read this post to learn more about WordPress plugins that will help your WordPress site or blog get to the next level.
3. 25 Ways to Marketing Your Business for Free by Marlee Ward
Though I’d prefer the title to read: 25 Ways to [Market] Your Business for [Nearly] Free, I’m not going to be overly picky. The author admits up front that some of the methods she writes about are not necessarily “free,” especially in regards to spending time on said methods. And we all know that time=money. However, the tips and examples she gives in the post are very creative, cost-effective, and just plain do-able. Read the article to get some ideas as you tweak your marketing/PR plan for this quarter.
I hope you find these articles as useful as I. Keep pressing on towards those goals and you’ll see them accomplished! And go ahead–treat yourself to that 3rd cup of coffee this afternoon. It’s Monday, so why not?
