On +Joel Friedlander's  blog today you will find a post that I wrote on the topic of podcasting.

I talk about the rise in podcasting and podcast listeners, share my journey into podcasting, discuss  the steps authors need to take to launch their own podcast, and suggest podcasting topics for writers.

I would love to hear your feedback!

 Lately, I've really been enjoying the posts by +CoSchedule

 I first learned about this application by reading  +Adam Connell 's  blog. Since then,   I have become quite a fan of this application.

 In this new post,  +CoSchedule  explains in detail how bloggers can create more professional looking images and graphics. This is information I need and  will definitely put to use. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

If you've been wondering whether your website is up to snuff, this is a great opportunity to have an expert review it – for free.

+Paula Gregorowicz handles my website and I highly recommend her.
 
Have you ever wondered what you could do better on your #website?  I am holding a free website review open house on 3/31. I'll be reviewing up to 5 websites live on the call (normally $297+) - all you need to do is register here: http://eepurl.com/bfKz1T

Then let me know you want to be one of the sites reviewed. 

Easy-breezy and you will walk away with actionable steps whether your site is reviewed or you attend and learn from others.

 We all know about the popularity of eBooks,  but what about audiobooks? I was surprised by some of the statistics in this post. I'd love to know what you think.

I've been going to Dolce Vita and seeing Kimberly for just over a year. She is the best hairstylist I've ever had. She understands color and knows how best to match hair color with a person's complexion and style. Kimberly is also a master at cutting and styling and initially spent quite a bit of time with me helping me to learn how to get the "salon look" when I'm at home. This is a full-service salon, a really nice feature. The aesthetician there is masterful at waxing eyebrows, which I've only been doing for a year. I really like being able to make one appointment for all my beauty-related needs. The entire staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable so even if you don't see Kimberly, you'll still have a great experience.
