laura, you are going to charge for this like Chris Brogan?
Nope. This was just a one-time thing. I know a lot of people struggle with this, so I thought I’d share some ideas I’ve jotted down that might help. I do, however, develop blog strategies for people and businesses. But, that is a custom approach.
I think Chris’ blog topics product is a really great option for people who want and need some ongoing fuel for their blog, but don’t have the money to spend on personalized consulting.
GREAT post, Laura. Really helped me break through some recent major writer’s block.
Excellent! So glad to hear it, Sarah.
