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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Letter Writing: I am going to handwrite at least 2 letters this month. (Hopefully the recipients can read it.)
- 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?
