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
Toby Bloomberg says
Very excited for you .. I know it will be fantastic! Thanks for the kind digital nod.
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!
Joanne Bamberger aka PunditMom says
