Every writer today needs an effective website as part of a complete marketing plan.
Take charge of your online presence and
create an effective website this year. Anyone can do it, but is it a
good idea to start a blog, or to create profiles on the various social
networking sites? I discuss this and more in article covering my
experience in niche writing: Managing
Your Online Presence - How I Ended Up Being Featured on USA Today.
I had a great time at the 2010 Tallahassee
Writers' Association's conference.
Thanks to Donna and the committees for putting on a great event with
wide range of speakers and workshops. I'm always amazed that so
many writers don't have websites or ones that are ill-conceived.
It's time to really take charge of your online presence with a good (It
doesn't have to be great.) website that reflects your personality, your
books and is attractive to your audience--those who would be interested
in your books. You also must be able to edit it with a WYSIWYG
(What you see is what you get) editor that doesn't overwhelm you.
I also talked about my book,
"Sustainable Gardening for Florida"
at the book festival at Saturday. Both Barnes & Noble and
University Press of Florida, which had sales tables there, sold out of
my book. This book deal was initiated because of my online presence.
Learn to manage yours.
Web maven since 1994.
idea: Create a FaceBook page for your writing career separate from
your personal page where you might share photos of your family. Post only
items that will solidify your "brand" as a writer. You can then
load the app that will post your Facebook posts directly to your Twitter
feed. Just remember that every photo and every link should have the first
140 characters make sense. It's your headline.

Great ideas for your web presence.
One size does not
fit all writers. I used to help people design their websites, but
there are so many easy-to-use website generators available now and since
I've become a Florida Garden writer, I no longer do this.
