The awesomeness of Kristen Lamb’s book: Are You There Blog? It’s Me Writer

   There is absolutely nothing like learning from someone who makes you laugh (I think this is why my students love me so much- yeah I said it). The great expert teacher I am referring to now is none other than KristenLamb author of a book that I know will change by blogging life, Are You There Blog? It’s Me Writer.

        The book is obviously about blogging, but there’s more to it. While reading it I was relieved to learn that I was doing some things  right on my blog, and learned about some changes that have to be made in order to make it better. The woman breaks down the term ‘branding’ and makes it something that is totally achievable.
       Who do I recommend this book to?
        1. Everyone (but that’s a bit broad isn’t it?)
        2. Any writer who has a blog and wants it to do exponentially better than it is doing now       
        3. Anyone who thinks they may want to be an author one day
        4. Non authors who like to blog
     I have read one other book about blogging and it left me with more questions than answers. Honestly, I was hesitant to read Kristen’s book, but after reading her fantastic posts on her blog I decided to give it a try, and I am so glad I did. No matter how many great things I say about this book, there is no way I can ever do it justice, it is just that good. Kristen’s writing inspires, teaches and makes you laugh.
      Read this book and check out her blog. I’m off to buy her other book We are Not Alone: The Writer's Guide to Social Media (Writing)

   By the way, if you didn’t know. I am Nana Prah and I am a writer.
