Download "7 Ways to Make Your Blogging Sizzle"

Just a quick note: here’s the PDF of the talk which I gave this morning at KDU Penang in conjunction with their Literary Day. Yes, this is the second year that I’ve been invited to give a talk on blogging.
(By the way, I enjoy taking part in these activities. It gives me a chance to do something which I normally don’t do – public speaking! Did you know that the fear of public speaking is the #1 fear of most people? The way to overcome this fear is to just do it. Fear or no fear, sometimes you must get out of your own comfort zone and do something different.)

  2. How was Jana’s talk? (And no, I’ve not read through the notes…yet.) I did pop into Borders just now just to see if you were coincidentally sitting on one of the sofas but you were probably at home propping your feet up at 10 o clock at night.

  3. Hi KookyMonsta: We live and learn. Hey, I am still learning too. There’s so much more that I need to learn to become a better blogger and of course, a better writer! We can share notes! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Hi d: Jana was fabulous! She had lots of energy, had the audience eating right out of her hand. That woman is a powerhouse. Which reminds me, I have to email her the photos we took this morning. Borders? Hmm, too much of work to be done – but next week maybe I’ll be there. Crossing fingers.
