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 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!
