Blog Post Promotion: The Ultimate Guide 2nd Edition is Out

In February, I wrote the first edition of Blog Post Promotion: The Ultimate Guide. Since then, a lot has changed. Google+ entered the scene, Facebook brought out the Timeline profile (or is in process at least), CommentLuv radically changed their system, and I’ve simply learned a lot more about promotion and measuring your results.

So today, I have released the 2nd Edition to the Blog Post Promotion Guide. If you haven’t already ordered a copy, be sure to buy it now at the 2nd Edition introductory price of $25 USD – a little over 30% off the regular price!

If you have already ordered a copy of the first edition, simply use the contact form to send me your name, email address, and Paypal email address used to let me know you’d like get a copy of the 2nd Edition at no additional cost.

This week’s top photo came from Sedona. Another celebration of beautiful fall colors illuminated on a sunny morning.

Tilt-Shift Timelapse

I love timelapses, and I love tilt-shift, so this was a combination I couldn’t pass up.

    Hi Kristi,
    Good and worth reading articles as usual, you have a good nose to find real gold articles for the weekend. I also read and commented your article in Blogengage.com

    Yay, I love Fetching Friday. There is so much to go through. I especially liked the The Non-Designer’s Guide to WordPress Blog Design.

    I haven’t been around much lately, but I always love your Friday mashup . . . there’s typically a few great posts from the week that I missed, and always a new site to learn about. Thanks as always for continuing to do what you do!

    Hi Kristi,

    some great information. I particularly enjoyed the article by Derek Halpern about the impact that font choice has. I would never have thought that the perception of the reader can be changed so significantly by using fancy versus simple fonts.

      I usually just go for easy to read, but I have heard some pretty intense studies saying that certain fonts work better depending if your goal is information absorption or conversions.

    Hi Kristi,

    Thanks for featuring my 17 Habits of Highly Effective Bloggers here:) I really appreciate that. There are a lot of balls to keep in the air but you do it well and make it look easy too.

    Loved reading about your revisit to BlogWorld and seeing the pics. I was sad not to make it this year but may be next! It would be great to see you again.
