WANA – We Are Not Alone
WANA Blogging Class of October 2011 celebrates year one!
In October and November 2011 I took Kristen Lamb’s Blogging for Author Brand class.
She’s not only knowledgeable about social media, search engine optimization, effective topics to blog about, and managing our time so we can focus on writing our books, but she’s funny as heck.
I learned to hang loose, be my zany self, and have fun with blogging.
My blog gets more traffic since I took this class, but that’s not all. I also made new and long-lasting friendships. Our class has stayed in touch and morphed into a team that shares knowledge on writing, marketing, technical problems, and any other concerns we have.
When one of us is going through a rough patch, we turn into a pep squad and offer our support.
