This Congressman says not everyone needs to use the Internet. Do you agree?

Episode 2 Season 2: Shouldn’t I be Blogging? #Blogging #Podcast

In this Episode:

We talk about why Blogging is important and how you can get started and what it takes to get people to actually follow and read your blog. We are joined by our Special Guest: Amaryllis Turman, who is the blogger-in-chief of The Opinionated Woman’s Musings, a reviews and musings website whose following is building quickly. She talks about how she got started, what platforms she used along the way and what works for her to get her following and to keep growing it. She talks about how she builds relationships with her followers and readers as well as connecting with Authors and publishing companies that help drive readers to her site. And unlike yours truly, she is very consistent in her postings and she talks about how she keeps her schedule. And what about a “blog tour” to get more traction to your blog?

We also talk about writing, creativity, and how much creative juices are our daily allowance. And finally tales of a voracious reader.  What kind of books do you read?

Editor’s Note: Chuck was off on his own adventures so sadly he wasn’t on there.
