If you’re anything like me, when you first started out blogging, you had no idea what you were getting into. “I’ll just do a page about book reviews,” I thought. “It’ll be easy!”. But anyone who has been doing this for more than 5 minutes knows it’s not easy, and there is a deceptively steep learning curve involved. I’ve only been at this caper for about 8 months, and as much as I have already learned, I know there is way more still to learn.
However, over the last 8 months I have learned a lot. And now I’d like to share what I’ve learned so far with my subscribers. This is my way of saying thank you for following my blog.
So, for all of you who have decided to subscribe to Barbara’s Booknalysis, I would like to invite you to visit my new resource pages. They are password protected, but I’ll be sharing the password with all of my subscribers.
For those of you who have chosen to follow by email, you will be getting an email from me shortly with the password and website details.
For those of you who are fellow WordPress users, the process is a little different. WordPress doesn’t share your email address when one WordPress user follows the blog of another, so I don’t have your email information to be able to send you the password. For this reason, if you would like to have access to my resources, I will need to get you to provide me with your email address directly. You can do this by filling in the form on this page. (And if you want me to delete your email address once I’ve sent the access info, just note it in the comments on the form and I’m happy to do so.)
Here’s what you can look forward to finding:
- Book review template for keeping track of your reviews (see image)
- Book tracker for keeping on top of when your reviews are due
- Blogtionary of common blogging terms
- Websites where you can access free images and software
- Resources for self-publishing authors
- Blogger and author support groups
- Book promo companies, where you can sign up for book tours / cover reveals / book sales etc
- And more!
This is very much a work in progress, but I wanted to share what I already have with you without further delay. Then over the next few weeks, I will be continuously adding to each of these categories until all of the information I have gathered is posted (and I have a lot!).
But this will also be an ongoing project for me, so don’t only visit once – I plan to keep adding to it all each time I learn something new, or find some new tool or trick that I think can benefit you all.
And I’m open to suggestions. Do you have an idea of something you would like to see included? Let me know! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you all take the time to have a look, as I believe there is something here for everyone. I’ve had a lot of fun preparing it all and I hope you enjoy it too.
