How to Market a Book with a Blog


I have a BLOG . . . yet I know NOTHING . . . ZIP . . . NADA . . . ZERO about BLOGGING. Why do these young Computer Geniuses come up with all these ‘werid’ words – – – ‘Twitte-=Tweets’, ‘Blog – Blogger’?
Thanks to CHRIS McMullen, CHRIS GRAHAM, The Story Reading Ape and RON of RONOVAN WRITES and LIT WORLD INTERVIEWS . . . I am learning . . . did I mention I am a slow learner?
