Pic of the Week… And a GIVEAWAY!

My Blogging book, in print!
My Blogging book, in print!

I’m about halfway through the summer semester of my blogging class, Blogging for Beginners (through LSU Leisure Courses), and I received a shipment of my “textbooks.”

This book, “Blogging For Beginners: 51 Blogging Tips,” is a compilation of the tips I offer on my class blog, Blogging for Beginners. I know, I get really creative with these names.

While I put this book together last year, it’s the first year I started making the book a requirement for the class. Not to toot my own horn, but I think it offers lots of great information for beginners, and even though most of my class is dedicated to living online, I think we still live in a world that likes something to hold onto (literally).

So, I ordered 15 copies for my students, and this was the first time I got to see them in print. I must say, it was a cool feeling. They look beautiful!

If you have a Kindle (or the Kindle App for iPad), you can purchase a digital version of the book here, or get the pretty printed version here.

Or, if you’re still reading… you can *WIN* a free copy! That’s right, it’s my first giveaway! To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post, telling me what you’ll use the blog tips for: writing a new blog? Perfecting your current one?

I’ll randomly select a winner (using Random.org) Wednesday (June 18) night at 9pm, central time, so get your comments in before then! I’ll post the winner on the blog Thursday, June 19 — so let’s do this thing!

Happy commenting!

    I need inspiration for my blogger’s block. It’s almost a year since I’ve written a post and I would love-cherish the book. I’ve read many of your posts and each one resonates with me as honest. Thank you!

    I would use the book to learn more about blogging. I started blogging once……… and just didn’t get it going. Sad but true! And I’m a big Holly Phillips supporter! 🙂

    Wow, thank you all so much for reading & entering. The winner has been chosen and will be posted on tomorrow’s blog! Since this went so well, I’m going to host ANOTHER giveaway on the blog next week (different prize), so be on the lookout! Thanks again for stopping by!
