There are so many interesting pieces of information, which are generally overlooked not only by those who start a blog but also by those who have started and think about how to expand their visibility. The only small minus is that is focused only on Wordpress, but this is just a very small minus as that advice can be applied to most of the platforms.

Perhaps the easiest part of writing an author blog post is the actual writing. We're writers, after all. But (judging purely from my own experience), we're not always sure of WHY we're writing or what to do with it when the copy is finished. This course fills in all the gaps, leading you through the various phases of blogging, asking and answering all those questions hovering around the process as well as confronting its technological demands. If you already have some experience of blogging, it'll fill in gaps you maybe weren't aware of and certainly help you to polish your product and make it more relevant and specific to the outcomes you have in mind. If you're at all tentative and uncertain about blogging, it's an essential read. If you consider you're an expert, it will confirm your confidence (or perhaps surprise you with its insights). Whatever your level, it's an instructive and inspiring read.

The course helped me recognize the purpose for a blog - Thank you for the clear information

I was pleasantly surprised when I signed up for this little course. It was in bite size pieces that you could easily come back to and finish later. I have already done some blogging using WordPress.com but this course highlighted things I had not thought to use and gave me some brilliant ideas to try out. Key things I am taking away from this are 'Titles' ~ Hook with curiosity, keep posts useful and relevant, with short paragraphs. Make the blog an extention of your books to provide value for your readers. But most of all, the first thing I will be doing is to create a content calendar. This will ensure I plan better what I will post and when. I shall start fresh and begin small with one post per week. Very highly recommended Happy Blogging https://roseenglishukauthor.wordpress.com/

The guidelines he and his team offer are useful for the novice blogger as well as for the more advanced bloggers. Mr. O'Bryan and his team do an outstanding job of providing much more than just an author promotion service platform. BooksGoSocial has built a marketing foundation build on a genuine interest and dedication to helping writers and authors. I wish to personally thank Mr. O'Bryan and his team because I sense their passion and motivation in helping writers achieve recognition as authors. BooksGoSocial are people who really care. I wish you continued success and happiness with your business and writing as an author. Best wishes, Steve Leasock

The master class in blogging for authors provided clear instruction, examples, and recommendations that are essential for authors who are establishing their place in the blogosphere! It provided simple information for beginners and advanced information for those of us who have begun to blog but need to raise the bar on our blogging effectiveness. I would highly recommend this course. It is separated into short segments that provide essential information. Thanks Laurence O'Bryan for continuing to support your fellow authors!

A great course for beginners

O'Bryan discussed several basic concepts in blogging. Now I need the discipline to get started! Thank you much.

Having no idea what blogging actually involved, I was grateful to find this helpful, well constructed course. It answered all my questions, and gently nudged me toward my own Wordpress.com blog. The layout and delivery of this course has been worth every penny and the fact that you can complete the course in your own time, was particularly helpful to me.

This course gave me the information I needed to be able to sort out my website and plenty of great ideas for my blog. Excellent thanks.

I'm new to blogging and discovered that I am already making some mistakes but this course provided me with the necessary tools to move in the right direction.

Very helpful. I was resistant to this idea. You convinced me of it's value.
