As the saying goes, “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.”

 

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the “Reblog” button but I prefer the “Press This” button.

Or what about a Blogspot post? I use the title with a link to the post.

Why? Because I’m a control freak. I like to know what my post will look like once it’s published. Plus I like to control when my post hits the web.

Here’s one of my little videos to explain the process.

So what do you think? 

Will this help you share more blog posts, or not?

Do you want to make a video?

Well, you’re in luck.

Read how you too can make a video.

Don’t let fear hold you back.

A while back, I made my first video for YouTube. In this video I shared the two programs I use for my videos. Everyone was so kind regarding the endeavor by this newbie.

Easy and simple are my motto. 

But for those of you who would like to learn a lot more about making your own videos, check out the following post, and video, by Marlene Hielema.

I think you will find it very informative and helpful.

Do you know which software to use?

Okay, you’ve written a book.

Now you need to get it print ready.

Are you struggling to find the right software to design your book?

This article came at a great time for me. I’ve been struggling with trying to figure this out.

I use Scrivener for some projects, and Microsoft Word for others.

One of the things I’m beginning to finally understand, there’s no one size fits all. Especially when it comes to writing.

I like Canva for artwork, and I’ve been trying out a few others. But all have limitations.

Do you have a favorite program?

We can all benefit from others experiences and I so appreciate your feedback.

I hope you find this article, by , as informative as I did.

Are you choosing the right word?

A picture paints a thousand words, but the right words can paint an amazing picture.

In this article, Mr. Kickman explains how important it is to choose the right words to set a scene.

Sometimes I’m too succinct, too quick and too sparse leaving out too many details.

Maybe it’s from writing too many Flash stories. I’m not sure, but I do know how much I enjoy a story when the words pull me into their world.

Read the article at SouthWest Writers and let me know what you think.
