Friday Round-Up - #10

My friend, Eva, who also attended the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference, emailed me with exciting news. She won the contest for best published poem. Her poem and articles from other authors can be viewed at

In my travels yesterday, I found a great article on building blog traffic at The post is dated August 13, 2008. Whether you're a newbie blogger or a veteran, you'll find something valuable.

I have a blogging tip of my own. Before the conference, I updated my business card and included my blog address. Whenever anyone shows the slightest interest in my writing, I give them my card and invite them to visit my blog.

On Tuesday, I posted a contest for Tekeme Studios and Mary E. DeMuth. There are 3 ways to win awesome prizes, which include a free website or blog design.

Congratulations to George and Ashley Weis, of Tekeme, on the birth of their baby boy. Check out Ashley's blog for cute pictures and information.

Hey, my facebook account's been wonky, and I've been out of town without email for a week. Thanks for all your comments! I'm glad your mom enjoyed the books.

Hi Mary -

Thanks for stopping by. I'm also running the contest for you and Tekeme Studios. I know readers will be blessed not only by the great prizes, but by your words of wisdom.

I am enjoying your blog. Mostly glanced at it, but I will be back to read more.

The URL for Eva's poem doesn't work. I thought you'd like to know and I'd love to read her poem.

Thank you for sharing about Terry Whalen's blog on attracting more readers to a blog. I shared with you via e-mail about wanting more visitors to mine. I bookmarked Terry's blog, as well.

Hi Laina -

Welcome to my blog, and thanks for your comment.

I'll have to check out that link. Maybe I copied it wrong.
