What I Learned from My 2018 Reader Survey

My very-first-ever reader survey ended last week, and I’m so thankful to each and every one of you who participated! Conducting a reader survey was a new idea to me, though definitely one of those “why didn’t I think of this before” type of new ideas. Here’s what I learned from listening to you: Though …

How to Get People to Actually Read Your Blog

Okay, I’ll admit that title is probably a bit misleading. Because I’m not going to tell you some magic formula that will make readers flock to your next blog post. I’m just going to tell you what I learned today because I think it’s pretty awesome. Pretty awesome in that “Duh, why didn’t I think …

Published!

Oh, what a wonderful word that is! I’ve spent this week up to my eyeballs getting everything ready to have my book published.  The soon-to-be-10yo is gone to camp, and all this attention to detail has served to distract me from missing him unbearably. The book is ready to go now (and thankfully, Wonder Boy …
