Friday Round-Up - #53

Blogging fills a need for both the blogger and the blogee. The blogger gets to express whatever is on their mind, while the blogee draws from their experience and knowledge. Unless we can bring the two together, blogging is like shouting in the wind.

I came across a post by my buddy, Kathryn Lang, over at Successful Freelance Writer, on bringing traffic to your blog. She found an interesting quote, and gave some tips on how to implement an idea.

Terry Whalin, well known for his Book Proposals That Sell, blogged on 5/31 about how every email counts. I don't have a direct link to this post, but I have given the blog link. If you scroll down, he also has some practical suggestions on sizing your book for economical mailing.

I'm thankful for all the wonderful blogging friends I've made since the inception of Christian Writer/Reader Connection. Let's build on those relationships and reach out to others.

Have a blessed weekend!

Ooh, can't wait to check out those tips. Thanks!
I know "talking" to other bloggers has filled my socialization need.

I just got back from a 10 mile canoe trip with my family and have a TON of posts to read! Those look like great links, Susan! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sherrinda -

A ten-mile canoe trip? You must be exhausted, but I guess a true blogger doesn't let anything stop them from their appointed rounds. :)

Great to see you. It looks like you've got a jump on the weekend.

Blessings,
Susan

Kathryn Lang said...

Hey Susan - thanks for stopping by. I've been having some very positive results with building my blog sites so I hope some of the tips are helpful for others as well.

Hi Kathryn -

I appreciate blogs that help me learn the ropes. Does Wordpress have a Follower feature like Blogger? It's quite helpful, not only for building a following, but also for keeping track of the blogs you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Terri -

You said you never got to be a cheerleader. Wrong. You cheer us on every day. :)

Blessings,
Susan
