Organizing- Organized

Another book review..  And I haven’t really read this one either.

DD1 had this in the van, so I picked it up thinking, “Hmm, I can always use more organizing tips.  I’ll check it out.”  

slob, humor, book

It’s purple! Of course I was drawn to it!!

Not that you ever use the ones you already know, or anything…

Well, {head toss- not as effective with such short hair} learning is always good for me, whether I put it into practice or not.

Yeah, okay.

 

(Another old post- probably at least a year old…     And no, I never finished reading the book.      Just thumbed thru it looking for any purple pages.          Disgraceful, I know, I know!!         Please don’t tell the teacher’s union, they’ll take away my teaching certificate!!             Oh wait, I let that expire in 2012….         In that case, tell away!!)

Rave Review

As I’ve mentioned before;  Janice is the author of the wildly successful e-book;   slob, humor, BBFFJ's book

And why is she so successful, you may ask??      Because she follows her own expert advice!!

 

So, of course since she’s my BBFFJ, I eagerly offered to read it, and give a review.      (I’m no dummy!    I’d be first to find out her secrets!!)

This is the review Marsha referenced, in her article, :How Do I Know Which Blogs Give the Best Advice?”         Marsha has posted her own review of Janice’s book here.

 

PurpleSlobinRecovery Reviews “An Insider’s Guide to Building a Successful Blog: Tips and Tricks from the Creator of Mostly Blogging.”

            Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce premier blogging expert, and my BestBloggingFriendForever, Janice Wald!     Janice, or BBFFJ, as I call her, is a teacher, with a huge heart for helping others reach their full potential.    Not only her students, but everyone in the whole blogosphere!!     And that’s exactly what her new e-book accomplishes!

This e-book is a veritable treasure trove of tried and true wisdom.    Once you’re finished reading this book, you too will know how to build a successful blog, guaranteed!!     (Unless you it read it in your sleep, then the guarantee is null and void.)

In her list of 71 Tested Tips to Help you Blog Better”, she solicited quotes from 71 of her readers.    Even me!!    And I’m as far from an expert, as you can get!    (I didn’t even know what SEO was, until BBFFJ taught me!  )     

 #48. “Comment on others’ blogs.”      And as you might expect, she was the one who taught me that, as well!

This e-book will introduce you to outstanding blogs, and bloggers that are very influential in the field.    Networking is of supreme importance, and you will acquire that skill set.

Seriously, BBFFJ’s e-book is the encyclopedia Britannica for Blogging!      (Oops, I think I just gave away my age there!)     She includes all the wealth of knowledge needed to do exactly as the title says.

Need to know WHERE to promote your blog??     Look no further!    Don’t know WHEN, or HOW to promote your blog?    Never fear!      Janice is here!    (With the answers to ALL your questions.    No, she won’t tell you where Jimmy Hoffa is; it has to be Blogging related!)

This book is a compilation of her posts teaching the ins and outs of blogging.   

  • Knowing when to start a blog.
  • Finding your niche.
  • Finding your voice.
  • How to make, and use excellent graphics.
  • How to post superior content.
  • How to build a blogging community.

And so many other things, you’ll have to read the book to find out!!

You’ll even learn the paramount skill for bloggers:  How to blog, and STILL find time to sleep!!

Under “Examples of Blog Brands”, my BBFFJ once again features lil, ole ME!  {And no, I’m not paying her off!  😉 }

“Melinda Mitchell has a self-deprecating online presence. Her persona is funny, creative, and highly critical of herself. She calls her blog Purple Slob in Recovery, and that is her online presence—she is a purple slob. Bear in mind I am not calling Melinda a slob. This is her online name for herself. Her self-deprecating persona continues into her posts. A typical post, “Library Loser,” explains how she loses library books. Her avatar is that of a woman wearing purple, looking distressed.

slob, humor, Purple Slob- me!

She carries this “purple” theme across her social media. Her Facebook name is Purplelinda. Another creative maneuver that makes Melinda a stand-out blogger is her use of alliteration in her headlines. “Dying Dishes” is another one of her posts detailing the filth that covers her dishes. The post asks where dishes that dirty go to die.”

Oh, ok, I forgot for a second there that I was reviewing my BBFFJ’s book.  Enough about me!!     Back to the book!!

Another vital topic is; “87 Free Blogging Tools.”       Everything in the book is pure gold, so have your highlighter at the ready!!

“Currently, there are over 1 billion websites online. In order to make yours stand out and achieve visibility, you need an action plan.”      If your action plan does NOT include devouring this book, you’ll be sorry!      GET IT TODAY!!

 

 

Can you tell I love slob, humor, happy! ?        Oh fer Pete’s sake!      WE know you love yourself!       This is about JANICE, not you!!       Not that anybody would know that, with all the references to yourself you crammed into Janice’s review!

Oh, right!     Janice!  

slob, humor, Janice Wald

I love Janice, and Janice loves me!       Now go buy her book, and she’ll love you too!
