Join the Discussion

Discussion holds the power to enlighten and inform. Of course, it needs to be a two-way conversation where listening happens as often as talking…and from both sides. In our crazy “You Can Do it All” world, it can be difficult to maintain the focus needed to accomplish any task well. That’s one of the things …

You Said Video Would Gain Exposure

Facebook algorithms favor video. Oh, and groups. So, to get the best organic exposure on facebook, post videos in your groups. Sure. Whatever you say. Who said it? People who know all about making your brand stand out. Professionals who are PAID to make videos that bring in customers. But I’m an author. I’m not …

Writing in a New Direction

Sometimes directions are clear: “Turn left at the next stop light.” Other times, the directions can be convoluted: “Take the next right. Keep left.” (My GPS often says this, in fact. Amazingly unhelpful.) In 2013, I started in a new direction. I quit my job with the school district to pursue a writing career full-time. …
