Let’s Promote Our Books, Write Some Letters and Indulge in our Hobbies

3 Jan

You know I’m overly-scholastic, right? I found out that January is Book Blitz Month, Business & Reference Books Month, Letter Writing Month and Hobby Month.

All of them are self-explanatory except Book Blitz. According to Boston University’s site, “National Book Blitz Month, which was created by a public relations executive to encourage authors to promote their own books, focuses attention on improving the relationships between authors and the media in order to create a best-selling book.”

Following are ways I’m going to honor these observances:

  1. Book Blitz: Promote my ABCs of Blogging: Blogging Basics from A to Z and ABCs of Live Blogging: Quick Tips for Live Blogging Success. I’m going to really work on those media relationships.ABCs of Blogging eBook CoverThe ABCs of Live Blogging e-book
  2. Business and Reference Books Month: I am going to indulge in The Handbook of Executive Communications, edited by John Louis DiGaetani. This book was an accidental blessing that I found at Harold Washington Library.
  3. Letter Writing: I am going to handwrite at least 2 letters this month. (Hopefully the recipients can read it.)
  4. Hobby Month: I have been wanting scrapbook for months, but my business is a priority. This is the perfect opportunity to break out with my paper and scissors while letting my imagination and creativity flow.

Those are my plans for these observances. How will you participate?

    Hey Marcie,

    Thanks for the motivation. I plan to spend more time enhancing my writing skills, to submit some poetry items that I have filed away, and to start crocheting again. Crocheting is a relaxing, so during the process, I can think of more things to write about. In fact, I recently crocheted a pair of roller skate covers; I will finally write a pattern for the covers, and send it to a crochet magazine. Wow!! I’ll be busy this month.

      Gloria, thank you for sharing your plans for this month. I would love to see your roller skate covers. If you decide to sell more, you have a spot on my roller skating site at http://www.realskatestories.com.
