Tips for indie authors

Found two great sites for indie authors. One on reasons to blog and another on how to blog.

When I first started out, I didn’t know the difference between a blog and a website. I didn’t think I’d need to know the difference because I was a writer. Why would I ever keep a blog?

Molly Greene has a great answer to that question. I’m not going to repeat what she says (she says it way better than I ever could). Just click here and you’ll see what I mean.

Now, getting a blog is all good and dandy but if you have a blog, you want traffic and that only comes if your blog is both engaging and worthwhile to the reader. Karen Lotter has these five amazing tips. I had no idea how important it is to use good titles and headlines. Google doesn’t ‘get’ puns and sarcasm and so they won’t lead your post to your intended audience.

I’ve also posted these sites on my Resources page along with those others already there. Have a read!
