Last week I read a post by +Dan Blank on shame and it got me thinking.

Coincidentally, that week I'd been watching quite a number of TED Talks by Brené Brown on shame, empathy and vulnerability.

So I thought I would take a brave and unusual step and share the sense of shame I've been feeling in my professional life of late.

Sometimes, especially as Indie authors, we need to go against the grain, against what all the experts tell us to do and just relent, step back, and take a breath.

I explain how I'm doing that now in my newest post. Let me know what you think.

If there are days when you just can’t find the time to write, take another online webinar, or read one more post, don’t. It’s a radical idea in today’s world for author entrepreneurs.

I wrote a new post for +Joel Friedlander's blog and this one compares a number of social media dashboards available to authors.

Some are free, some carry a fee, some post to Pinterest and others include nearly all social media networks.

Some of the social schedulers mentioned here include +SocialOomph +Hootsuite +Buffer +Pluggio +Tailwind and others.

If you're looking for a new dashboard or just wondering what else is out there, check out this summary.

I wrote a post for +Penny Sansevieri's blog today on how to manage your social media in 15 minutes a day.

Isn’t that a lovely idea? You’re probably wondering, “It that realistic?”

Keep reading because I’m going to show you how to manage your social media in a way that it won’t dominate your marketing efforts or send you into the vortex of social media time suck.

In my view, this is disappointing news for Indie Authors about the availability of sales data for ebooks

There's the basic shared content tweet, the shared tweet with commentary, the retweet with community, the stat or fact tweet, and may others.

To see all 12 templates and explanations, check out the entire post.
Not sure what to tweet? Here are some templated Twitter "formulas" to get you started.

In this post for +Copyblogger, +Demian Farnworth says, "Unfortunately, when everyone has a voice, no one has a voice. It’s a strange way to find yourself in obscurity."

That's why we have to work so hard to stand out from the rest when we write our blog posts and other content.

Check out Demian's tips in this new post from Copyblogger.

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.
