Give Your Business a Gift

Hi all! So far this year I’ve given my business a couple of gifts. A new tablet because the old one no longer has sound. Not sure why, but my brother-in-law is benefiting from this tragedy with a tablet he can use as a back up or to take apart and tinker with to see how they work. Personally, I’m hoping for the latter. He’s always fixed our computers, and it would be great if he could figure out how to do the same with the newer technology.

I also bought The Renegade Writer OMNIBUS: Best of the Renegade Writer Blog 2006 to 2016 by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell.

Buying gifts for my business makes me feel good because I know I’m buying things that will help my writing career in the coming year.

I’d like to offer up information on my eBooks, that would help you along your writing career. I know you’ll take many good ideas from them and that you will be able to put those ideas to good use in furthering your own writing career.

Published! Organize Your Space and Stuff

Organize Your Space and StuffWow! It has been such a crazy, busy year so far. And it is only February 7th. Now, with four stories published and this book, I’m feeling incredibly accomplished. All the work that kept me up late nights last year is paying off in the form of these five eBooks published to Amazon.

As you may have noticed, many articles disappeared from this blog over the weekend. Why? Because they were updated and then placed into this eBook.

They were old and not completely up to date. But I had readers who kept emailing me regarding some of the articles I felt needed to be let go. They had questions; wanted more help in applying methods.

So I decided to write an eBook.

I needed to elaborate on some things in the articles, and let people know about what was still working for me and what wasn’t.

So many changes have been made since the early days of this blog.

This eBook:

  • Edits and expands on each article taken from the blog.
  • Provides an update, letting people know what has changed over the years, and giving even more tips for each article.
  • Provides action steps for you to follow, if you choose, to create a business that is organized and runs smoothly.
  • Gives you a bonus section with creative projects for your enjoyment. Some for fun, others that will put a new twist on some aspect of your business.

Organize Your Space and Stuff took months to complete, and will be a real treat for you. I know you’ll enjoy the read, and take plenty away from it that will help you with your business.

Is Organize Your Space and Stuff only for freelance writers?

Many other home and small business owners would get a lot out of this eBook.

Is the eBook available for KindleUnlimited?

Yes, it is free to read for anyone subscribing to the service.

How much will I have to pay if I want to buy the eBook?

The eBook is going for $9.99. With edited articles, updates, action steps, and a bonus section, the price is reasonable. There are 103 pages in the eBook.

What you can do now:

  1. Get Organize Your Space and Stuff today, and create a business you’ll be proud of. While your there, follow me on my author page. And, please leave a review if you enjoy the book.
  2. Subscribe to this blog to stay updated on other publications, as well as to learn more about the Freelance Life. Use the form in the sidebar or click on a follow button.

  6. Check out my Portfolio on Contently to see all the different things I write: Fiction, Lifestyle articles, and more.
  7. Contribute to my page on Facebook.
  8. Share my stuff on Twitter.

Generally, just help a girl out 🙂 Let me know what you do, and link to your stuff in the comments, and I’d love to #sharetheluv by pointing people toward your stuff as well, and read what you have to offer.

As always, feel free to email me at shannonlbuck@gmail.com if you prefer. I enjoy reading reader emails, and always reply.

5 Ways to Grow Your Blog

 

Growing your blog is easy, and really does not have to take large blocks of time. If you already have your ideas set to paper, in the form of titles and/or notes, you can get started right away.

 

How do you start?

 

By setting aside 30 minutes a day to work on your blog. In this time, you should be able to write a quality blog post, proof it for grammar, spelling and punctuation, and do at least one other quick task related to the blog.

 

So start now, and grow your blog.

 

  1. Invite other bloggers to write an article for you. Be sure they blog about things in your industry, and will link to their post on your blog.
  2. Add links in the side bar to articles (in the same industry) you have written for others.
  3. Use Bottlenose to look for trending topics in your area of expertise.
  4. Add a description and link to your sidebar, featuring a free or paid eBook, workshop or special report that you have created. Write a blog post about this same product, also linking to where your reader can find the product, and be sure to link to the post on all your social/networking profiles.
  5. Link to your main blog page from all your social and bookmarking profiles.

 

Extra: Whenever you come up with an idea for your blog, but cannot get to it right away, write the idea down. Use this list as your 30 minutes of daily blogging checklist. You will always have something to do. The list might contain topic or title ideas, sidebar addition ideas, networking ideas and more.

 

Happy blogging!

What do You Write?

 

This question might mean different things to different people. For instance, some may answer fiction, while other will answer non fiction. Some of you may even answer poetry.

 

The question also begs answers such as eBooks, eCourses and Special Reports. Scripts is another fine answer.

 

There are a wide variety of formats each person can write in.

 

Take advantage.

 

Write what you want.

 

I write many things. For this blog alone, I write:

 

  • Blog Posts
  • eBooks
  • eCourses
  • Special Reports
  • A Challenge
  • Tip Sheets
  • Writing Prompts
  • Worksheets

 

I also write eCookBooks and short stories, and am editing my first book of short stories. On top of all this, I am working on writing my second and third books of short stories. On top of all this, I also write two newsletters, have other blogs and write guest posts for other blogs.

 

I keep fairly busy.

 

What do you write?

 

What do you want to write?

 

What is your plan for getting it all done?

Year 4 Non Fiction Goals

My non fiction goals for Year 4 are mostly concentrated around this blog. I have important eBooks, mini Ebooks, eCourses and Special Reports that I want to provide all of you, besides the ones that you can already find in the sidebar.

I am very excited to get these written and published, so I can share them with you.

I would also like to get some audio and video workshops up and running for you here on the blog, but can’t really do this without internet access here at home. There is no wireless here, and I do not have a phone line for dial up. I am looking into a couple options, and hoping for the best. Wish me luck!

Of course, I want to publish a few more cookbooks for the Frugal Recipes blog, and create an eBook for the Living the Low-Income Life blog if I have time. These two blogs are very important to me. I would also like to incorporate audio and video aspects on these blogs as well.

And, I will be adding a lot of content to my channels on Examiner.com: Bangor Single Moms, Bangor Easy Meals and Bangor Frugal living. I also have a food column that I want to get going again, and two newsletters.

Pretty lofty goals, I know 😉

  • May Starts Year 4 (howtolivethefreelancelife.wordpress.com)



Year 3 Wrap Up

Wow. This past year brought many accomplishments. I am pretty pleased by this. I worked hard, even though I have had to work around not having home internet, and around working a ‘day job’. The list is a good one 🙂

  • I created new blogs.

  • I expanded on and updated existing blogs.

  • I finished my first book of short stories.

  • I published quite a few short stories online.

  • I started my second and third books of short stories, as well as a few nonfiction ones.

  • I have come up with a list, and descriptions, for quite a few new short stories.

  • I have come up with a few story lines for novels, and am getting the outlines done.

  • I have learned new marketing and promotion skills, though I still have a long way to go with this.

  • I have researched traditional/online book publishing.

  • I am still writing blog posts for Frugal Recipes: Spending Less to Eat Healthy and Living the Low-Income Life, Keeping in contact with fans, and trying to help as many people as I can both on the blogs and through email.

  • I have fans 🙂

  • I acquired a couple more channels to write for on Examiner.com, bringing me to three: Bangor Single Mom, Bangor Easy Cooking and Bangor Frugal Living. All of which are useful to those outside the Bangor area, as well as within.

  • Etc., Etc.

My income from writing has gone down some due to two factors:

  1. Having the day job. During mid spring to the beginning of winter, this job takes up a whole lot of time. However, winter and early spring brings me a little extra time off.

  2. No at-home access to the internet. I have to work around the hours of two different libraries.

As for freelance writing… I am keeping up with this, but I also want to concentrate on fiction writing. I love writing stories.

And photography… still taking photos 🙂 and planning to share some of them with you all this year.

All-in-all, I am pleased with my progress over the past year. Are you pleased with yours?

April 2012 E-Book Challenge: Continue Writing

And the third week of the 4 Week Write Your Own E-Book Challenge begins…

Are your ready for yet another productive week?

Remember: Productivity is key.

Here we are, at the top of the third week of the Write Your Own E-Book Challenge. Are you happy with your progress last week? Did you accomplish all you wanted to? If so, good for you! You are on track with this challenge and doing well.

If not, why? Even if you only got half of what you wanted done, you still made progress. Challenge yourself to do more this week 🙂

This week is really just a continuation of last week. It is time to finish up the actual writing. Do not worry about anything else. Do not read over what you have done already. Do not edit. Just continue to write.

At this point, evaluate where you are:

If you still have a lot to finish, you may need to allow yourself more writing

time.

If you are further ahead than you had planned, you may be able to spend less

time writing this week.

Do you need more time for research? Be sure to account for this in your

scheduling for the week.

Continue writing this week, with the ultimate goal of finishing the manuscript by Sunday. Work diligently. Keep plucking away every chance you get, and you will finish. Why? Because you already have everything planned out. You organized everything during the first week so you would already know what you wanted to writing.

NOTE: While it is tempting to edit a manuscript as soon as you are finished the writing process, refrain from doing so until next week. It is good to have a little time away from a manuscript. This makes the editing process go better.

ACTION STEPS:

  1. Schedule your writing time for the week.

  2. Do not forget to calculate in time for research as well, if needed.

  3. When the manuscript is done. Put it away until next week.

Happy Writing!

Ebook Photography

Every so often I am able to get out and snap some photographs of nature scenes near where I live. I love nature photography and would like to use some of the photographs that I am taking in my eBooks of short stories, such as Tales from the Mountain and Tales from the Woods. I am not by any means a professional photographer, but I sometimes get some pretty good shots.

I am hoping to publish the eBooks through Amazon, so I am going to have to look into their formatting policies to see if using the photos will be possible. If not, maybe I can find another place that will allow me to use them.

I still need a cover photo.
