A Year of Blog Prodding Pays Off. Thanks, AskMePC Coach!

I was visiting my Cyberspace Coach Linda Lee’s website http://askmepc-webdesign.com/ and came across photos of her at WordCamp 2009 San Francisco with buddy Rebecca Martin of Dear Jane http://www.dearjane.info/ and Matthew Mullenweg who is the founding developer of WordPress. On the “About Matthew Mullenweg” page http://ma.tt/about/ Matt says: “WordPress, the blogging software that runs much of this site and millions of other sites around the world. The website says WordPress is ‘a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform’ but more importantly WordPress is a part of who I am. Like eating, breathing, music, I can’t not work on WordPress. The project touches a lot of people, something I’ve recently begun to appreciate. I consider myself very lucky to be able to work on something I love so much.”
Today is his birthday. Happy Birthday, Matt! Thanks for developing such a useful program http://wordpress.com–especially for my clients, my colleagues, and me–writers who need a place to build our platforms (our names/fan base) while we write our books.

Back to Linda Lee http://askmepc-webdesign.com/. Special cheers to Linda Lee who “prodded” me to blog over 2 years ago. It wasn’t until November 2008 when her advice finally sunk in; I guess yours truly needed to hear something 7 times over a year. That same month Martha Alderson asked me to comment https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=31672110&postID=6520769433476476003 and share my expertise about building a platform/promoting novels; then Nina Amir  http://writenonfictioninnovember.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/how-to-make-your-manuscript-compelling/ asked me to be a guest-blogger on “How to Make Your Manuscript Compelling” and so I wrote “How to Look at Your Manuscript with an Editor’s Lens”

Nowadays, I look forward to blogging–sharing my observations

with writers who want to build their names and have fun doing it.  Thanks, Coach Linda!
