Okay, my friends. I am really excited about this new series on Blogging, Blog Tours, and Publicity. (and for those of you who are not excited, please don’t worry. I will be posting about other topics while this series is running!)
I had a wonderful response from my interviews and have lots of information to share with you. I’ll be posting this series over the next four weeks. On spaghettipie, I’ll post some general information, summaries of what I learned through the interviews, and resources I have found. On my blog tour blog, I’ll post the actual interviews I conducted with bloggers, publicists, alliance directors and marketing experts. Here’s a basic overview of the series. I am still waiting on a few more responses, so I’ll update the list of interviews you can read as I receive them.
Week 1: Blogging
On spaghettipie, we’ll talk about the history of blogging, why people blog, and the cost of blogging.
Week 2: Blogging and Marketing
On spaghettipie, our topics will include blogging as a part of your marketing strategy and the big mistakes writers make when blogging for promotion.
Week 3: Publicity
Here on spaghettipie, we’ll discuss blog tours, their goals, metrics, and success.
At Blog Tour Spot, you can read interviews with Kelly Blewett (Waterbrook Press) and Liz Johnson (Multnomah Books), and Kathy Carlton Willis of Kathy Carlton Willis Communications.
Week 4: Alliances
On spaghettipie, we’ll talk about what blog alliances are, how they work, and their success.
So, I’m interested to know from you – what do you hope to learn from this series?
