I want to wish all my readers a happy and prosperous new year!
What are your blogging goals for this year? My main goal is to blog consistently at On Blogging Well and to finish the free video course I started. I only made the first two modules of this four-part course, and for that I apologize. I hope to complete the other modules soon.
The next segment of our series on Market Research will deal with analyzing your competition. This is a process I plan to do using some instructional videos, and it will likely take 2-3 posts. However, sinus allergies have left me literally without a voice the past several days, so this series will be put on hold for at least another day or two.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but in the meantime, I invite you to take a sneak peak at my new project, Marketing Solutions for Writers, where you’ll get lots of great info about marketing your writing. From pitches to promotions, this site will soon have everything you need. Please stop by and give the site a warm web welcome.
I want to thank those who have sent me emails saying they missed this blog. For those of you who are new here, welcome! I took a few months off due to some family health issues, but all is well now, and I hope to blog here again with some regularity.
I’ve also been contemplating the future of this blog. Its purpose was to teach those who were new or perhaps intermediate bloggers how to blog better. I feel like we’ve exhausted most of the “how to get started” topics and it’s time to move past that. For those who still want to learn the fundamentals of blogging, please browse through the archives as there is a LOT of information there. And, as always, feel free to ask questions in the comments section if you’re unsure of a technique or process.
