Overview

Are You There Blog? It's Me, Writer? by Kristen Lamb

Social media has changed everything about the way we communicate, yet sometimes it can all feel so overwhelming. Where do you start? Maybe you want to blog, but where do you begin? What do you say? How do you get anyone to care about what you have to say? "Are You There, Blog? It's Me, Writer" is a compilation of social media expert Kristen Lamb's best social media blogs and lessons, and some additional material only found here. This book is designed to be a laugh-out-loud journey to the heart of social media.

Many of us know we need a social media platform, but what exactly does that mean? Most of us would rather have brain surgery with a KFC spork than learn about computers and social marketing. Fortunately, "Are You There, Blog? It's Me, Writer" is not your average social marketing book. This book will strip away all those fears and teach you how to make the most of Twitter, Facebook, and blogging and give you all you need to build a worldwide platform based on relationship and community. Kristen will show you how to manage time, be more productive, and maximize the top social media tools. The best part is you'll be having so much fun, you will forget you're supposed to be learning.

"It's a new world out there for authors--a new paradigm of marketing, communication, and interaction--called social media. It's the new digital Wild West. And while we're all trying to reinvent the wheel, Kristen Lamb's informative and illuminating book, ARE YOU THERE, BLOG? IT'S ME, WRITER is a brilliant roadmap through this new frontier. It literally changed my view of social media, my role in it, and my responsibility to my readers. If you're an aspiring or established author, this is a must-read for all."
--James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Doomsday Key

Nationally Best-Selling Author James Scott Bell Are You There, Blog? It's Me, Writer is packed with practical, humorous advice on how to do -- and just as important, how NOT to do -- social media. Writers of every stripe will benefit from this timely and fun to read resource.

Kristen Lamb's book Are You There Blog? It's Me, Writer it all about blogging, branding, and author promotion. Kristen's writing style is fun and goes down easy, and it's fair to say I devoured the book. Kristen makes the excellent point that all of your blogging/writing/publishing efforts should focus and enhance your Author Brand, because you are not selling books, you are selling you. The Unique You. And your brand needs to grow with you as a writer, because you're going to write more than one book, right? She has amazingly wonderful tips about how to profile your target audience, and tag your blogs to create your author brand, and craft your blog in a way that serves your readers. If you're a writer who blogs, you need to read this book!

I loved this book! I was terrified of blogging, but Kristen Lamb is so awesome at presenting digestible information in a way that keeps you laughing that pretty soon, you feel like she's sitting at your computer with you, personally guiding you through every step. And there's never a dull moment in the book. It takes real talent and personality to write a book about blogging that doesn't read like a toaster warranty, but Kristen makes it fun and possible. I highly recommend this book to all writers, bloggers and anyone who just needs a laugh today.

I read this book in one sitting. It was that enjoyable and easy to 'get'. Kristen's advice about blogging/social networking is so easy to apply. If you're new to blogging you might, at first, balk at some of her suggestions but be forewarned - she's prepared for every excuse you can think of and clearly explains the how's and how-not's of blogging by addressing the most obvious concerns. Another bonus is that "Are You There Blog, It's Me Writer" is not just for writers. I noted pages to read to my photographer husband because I know there's so much wisdom in there for him as well as for me. Next on my list is Kristen Lamb's "We Are Not Alone".
