Change is a Good Thing

I've been mentioning Kristen Lamb quite often the last week or so and there's a good reason.  First, she's giving away critiques to folks who comment at her blog, link to her blog and mention her book, We Are Not Alone - The Writer's Guide to Social Media.   While I have to admit I really want that critique but that's not the only reason I've been mentioning Kristen so much. 

The main reason I keep sending you to her blog is that she knows a couple things about social media.  Well, lots more than a couple actually but you get the idea. :-)  For example, her Twitter Tuesday series.  If you're on Twitter or just considering Twitter, check these posts out. 

Today, she started a new series on blogging.  Right off the bat, she hit the proverbial nail on its head.  I've already made one change she suggested and will be making others as we go along. 

So, now I'm going to send y'all over to her blog again.   

Also, don't forget to check out the BreakOut Prompts from Donald Maass on Twitter.  If you don't have an account, you'll have to sign up, then follow him @DonMaass.

*Pulling up a stump*
Hello! I found your blog via the A-Z Challenge list. Your title really grabbed me.

I am always looking for ways to improve my blogging. I have only been doing it for about two months. Thanks for the link.

Like I said earlier, the title of your blog caught my attention and in an effort to find new blogs to read for the challenge I issued myself an assignment to find 5 new blogs with fun creative titles and invite them to share the story behind their titles. I'd love you to visit my blog and tell the story of your title - Pocketful of Playdough However, this is not an attempt to drum up traffic for my blog, so if you'd like to tell me the story in reply to this comment, I'd love that too. Or to further promote the challenge, you could do a post about your title and pick 5 new blogs with fun titles to follow (I'm not telling you what to do!). Or you can call me crazy and forget the whole thing! Either way, I like your title and your subject matter is interesting to me, so I'm a new follower.
