Excellent article on how to grow your Google + audience.
 
How to Grow Your Audience On Google Plus

Google plus is currently the 2nd biggest social network in the world. It’s not rocket science to see that you should be apart of what is going on here, but many people and brands are not sure where to get started. I am often asked questions that I answered in this article I did .... Including things like...

* How to get started... like seriously what is Step 1
* How often should I be Posting...
* Why post about things not DIRECTLY related to my business... 
* SEO benefits...
and many more...

Hope you enjoy my top 10 tips for growing your brand and community here on GooglePlus... and feel free to share with friends, family or non believers. :) Especially on other social networks.. I think we as a community need to start getting some of these tips "out there" more. I'll be working on it a lot in the next little bit. :)

Great advice for authors from Publicity Hound Joan Stewart.
 
One of the things I like about Joan Stewart is her tremendous bag of tips for authors. Whether you're trying to get publicity for your book, set up a blog tour, or make contact with journalists, she has you covered.

That's one of the reasons I invited her to contribute to my blog, and today I'm happy to publish her article on things even smart authors miss out on, and how to solve them. Check it out:
