Ending Your Blog With a Question?

There's a blog I follow that ends each post with a question. At first, I enjoyed just reading the question. But as I keep following, I realized how much fun it is to think about the question and post a response. And if I don't have enough time to respond, I at least think about the question.The writer of the blog is a fellow mom-blogger, Lauren.

Who's Your Audience? Blogging Tips

Posted on March 30, 2014 at 6:21pm 0 Comments

You've probably heard it before: Know your audience.

You might think it's obvious. Your readers are moms, bloggers, or fill-in-the-blank. How much more do you need to know about them?

One way to think of blogging is picturing it like a book…

Online Writing Classes and Critique

Posted on March 23, 2014 at 2:04pm 0 Comments

Thinking of improving your writing with an online class or critique services?

Within the past year, I've enrolled in two separate classes and recently used a critique service. Two of the three services were well worth the cost. The other, was not.

Posted on March 17, 2014 at 1:27pm 0 Comments

Having trouble creating tension between your characters? I am. Thankfully, Linda Crotta-Brennan, a friend of mine who also happens to be an awarding winning author, suggested I read Frog and Toad are Friends, by Arnold Lobel, as an example.
