Professional Blogging For Dummies

As you know, for the past six months, I’ve been writing Professional Blogging For Dummies (affiliate link). Due out at the end of July, the book has been a big part of my life for the last year. Over the weekend, I noticed that Amazon had added the cover art to the pre-order listing, so I created an affiliate badge. It’s  over there –>  in the far right sidebar 🙂

Throughout the book, I use real examples to illustrate the points. Some interviews became case studies, other information was used as background, but everyone’s contribution was important. Even though I recognize everyone in the acknowledgements, I wanted to do it here as well.

Susan, as one who just finished writing a book, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I hope NOT writing a book feels as wonderful to you as it does to me lately. 🙂

Can’t wait to see the fruits of your labors, and as a Dummies fan, I’m thrilled to be included. xoxo

Seeing one’s pre-order page on Amazon is akin to getting an ultrasound– it’s a peek at the new edition you are expecting to be delivered in the coming months! Mazel to the tov,! Congrats!

YAY!!!!! You’ve been working SO hard — I’m so excited that it’s almost here. And, of course, it was my honor to be included in any way in this fab project! Will you autograph my copy? 😉
