A lot of writers, bloggers, and authors, tell me that it's very hard to keep up with all that is happening online today. And it's no wonder. There are mountains of information to plow through. And how do you know who to listen to?
That is the reason I wrote "Online Writing for Profit and Purpose". This book takes all the important basic elements a writer needs to get going with their online writing.

On Writing for Purpose
But "Online Writing for Profit and Purpose" is more than presenting tips for better online writing and blogging. It's also a guide to beginning to understand your purpose as a writer. When you understand your purpose as a writer and you combine it with solid online writing, then you have a foundation for lasting success.

She has a great sense of humor as well and had me cracking up in a lot of places in the book. Some of the things she covers is writing for blogs, freelancing, search engine optimization, and searching Google like a pro. I want to talk about SEO for a second. If you've ever had to configure an SEO plug-in, it feels more like scratching nails over a bulletin board. When you read her tips (on competitive words, etc.) you want to go out and try them yourself. Much of the book is like that. But read it first before you leave it as there is so much more to learn. It will be there when you want to revisit it, and you WILL want to revisit it, believe me as I have many times.
Back to writing. She explains what keeping it real really means and goes down to emotions all of us feel but none of us think to share with others. THAT'S keeping it real. She also points out writers who have succeeded and why. So you can learn from her and other writers as well. Her book is like a well thought out letter to a friend-from an expert in the field. In a way, she actually taught me how to treat Google like a three year old. You'll understand why when you read this book. Google to me is no longer this scary search engine giant but a little kid that will do what I ask if I ask it the correct way. She explains to you just how to do that. I love kids, but do you know any toddler that will do what you want when you ask them nicely? I don't-well, except for Google. Good little Google. Thanks, Karen. You made learning FUN!! She also sends you to great resources for freelancers (yeah) and more thoughtful information for those who are using the web that are handicapped. She covers more than what I can cover in this review. Even if you don't consider yourself a writer but would like to improve your actions online, this book is for you as well. Enjoy!!
Online Writing for Profit and Purpose is like having an experienced writer sit down with you and over a long cup of coffee, talking about your writing issues. The book moved back and forth between writing psychology and specific writing tips like better use of grammar to tagging your blog post to improve your SEO readership.
It was an easy read; it was a relaxed read. The tips were not revolutionary. Rather, there were small reminders of things we often overlook in the process of being busy with our writing.
It was a good investment of time and dollars. I felt refreshed when I was done with the read.
Making money writing is really a different proposition than it was a few years ago. "all" a writer had to do was write the book and engage a publisher. Now you still have to write a book, a guide, a manual, a white paper and then market it. Not sure which was an easier proposition.
I am looking forward to other books that are deep dives in this "Tips and Bits" series. Love the concept and the first book in what looks to be a very promising series. So much content...I mean really...who offers 66 tips "66 Titilatting Tips for Successful Writing" instead of the usual 10!
