My friend Karen is offering a 5 day live video course called The Art of Building a Blogging Career* starting September 15. The course includes 5 one hour-long sessions, a live chat, a Q&A session. This is such a great deal! Karen is one of my favorite bloggers, she’s a TV host by profession and is SO funny and good at what she does. If you have considered blogging as a profession, this course will contain all the information you need at a fabulous price.

  1. Thanks for the link, Myquillyn!

  2. I’m trying to visualize your book as an ebook. What say you?

    • I think it’s better in real life — but I think ALL books are better in real life–I don’t even own an ereader so you know, I can’t really comment. But I think ebooks are better than NO books!!

  3. As a teenager of the 70’s and a tutor of young children of today, the article comparing the two made me laugh so hard…oh my!

  4. Jessica Roush says

    Ooooooh my goodness!!! I can’t believe I won!! :D this seriously makes my whole weekend. Will I be getting a separate email, or how do I get you my info? :)

  5. Jessica Roush says

    Nevermind, just saw the email in my spam folder. Thank you!! :)

  6. Fourty seven holds is nothing. Ottawa Public Library is currently sitting at 121 holds on 19 copies!

  7. It took me months to get your book through my library too. I will be buying it for the kindle absolutely!!

  8. Love that stone fireplace!

  9. I know I’m probably not the only one to say…but that sofa is divine!! The whole room, really…divine!
