Reblog: To Traditionally Publish or Self-Publish by Karen Cioffi

Repost: “To Traditionally Publish or Self-Publish” by Karen Cioffi

Whether to publish traditionally or self-publish is the question I get most from my ghosting clients. Most new to the writing arena don’t understand what’s involved with either path. This article will helpfully shed some light on the topic.

Here’s a link to the rest of Karen Cioffi’s article with great advice and resources:

Which Social Media Meets Your Needs?

Which Social Media Meets Your Needs? by Joan Y. Edwards

There are many social media brands. It is difficult for one person to use all of them successfully. I use Facebook and Twitter most, followed by Alignable, Linked-In, Instagram, and GoodReads.

Choose the one that’s comfortable for you. Choose the one that meets your social needs and your business advertising needs.

Alignable – You can connect with people who live in your community or far away. Message people to set up a coffee meeting and learn more about sharing your services and find out more about others services in your neighborhood. People in your network may share your messages about your business.

Facebook – Set up a page on Facebook and advertise your books and blogs. You can also pay for Facebook ads.
