It’s that time again. Our monthly meeting of the Insecure Writer’s Group. In past posts I’ve shared some of my insecurities, today I thought I’d share with you some blogs that will help you to remove part of the insecurities (and hurdles) almost every writer faces. I think it’s important to not only share our fears and worries, but also to share the places that have helped us to remove some of those fears and these blogs are two that I’ve found to be the most helpful and I hope you will too.
SEO and Blogging Tips
Matt, the IT Sherpa from Guerrilla Wordfare, posts weekly SEO and Blogging tips and how to get the most out of Facebook and Twitter. Why are these things important to writers? Because it’s the quickest, easiest, and most importantly, cheapest way for writers to get their books into the hands of readers. If people don’t know you exist, then they’ll never know how great your book is. Matt gives helpful tips and tricks on ways to gain more traffic to your site and how to increase your fanbase.
