Hey Sally, welcome to Always Write! I’m so thrilled that you agreed to talk to us this morning. Well, it’s morning for us in California, but evening for you in Ireland.
You are one impressive blogger. I think what boggles my mind the most is that you publish a post almost every day. You have huge numbers of people that contribute, a huge fan base. You are on social media consistently as well. And you’ve only been blogging four years.
I just can’t figure out how you do all that and write and publish so many books. You say you are a workaholic, but my husband thinks I am, too, and I don’t have 11 books or 30,000 followers on my blog to show for it either. That’s why I’m interviewing YOU!
- As you think back to your beginning days of blogging, talk about one or two of the memorable life-changing experiences that came about because you started blogging.
- You feature a tremendous number of people on your blog. How do you find people to feature?
- What discourages you about blogging or writing? And what do you do about it?
- You’ve published 11 books and have a new one in the works. You’ve posted series of blog posts on writing books. There’s so much to do besides writing the book. What are some of the most important tasks on which authors should focus their attention?
- Can you walk us through how to be wrong?
- What one person or resource helped you the most as a new blogger?
FOUR FREE OFFERS and CLOSE
I have a unique gift for you TODAY only! This interview with Sally inspired me. So I want to give you Sally’s written answers as well as my template outline.
1. Are you one of Sally’s fans, too? It’s great to get to know her better. Sally wrote down her answers before we ever talked. AND there are some bonus questions, too! But you have to ask for them, by clicking the special link.
Since this is my very first Always Write podcast, I spent a lot of time on the opening and closing of the session. But I’m giving them to you. My hope is that it will make it easier for you to do a podcast or an interview if you have a template.
Please let me know how you like it.
But that’s not all!
2. Has something exciting happened to you because of blogging? Open your eyes. Amazing opportunities are all around you. Telling about them makes great blog posts. I want to help you share your story with the world. Everyone’s experience is unique and inspiring. Email me about one amazing opportunity that you got from blogging at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll share it on Always Write and promote it through all my promotional channels to give your blog a boost. If you’ve already written about it, send me a link to your post.
3. ATTENTION AUTHORS! For indy authors, I have a triple bonus. Just for signing up for my newsletter and blog today, if you send me an e-copy of your book, I’ll either post the blurb in my new A+ Library, inspired by Sally’s Cafe, or I’ll write a review, or both. It does take me a while to read books and review them. I post reviews on Thursdays, but I try to share other author’s reviews two weeks a month and write original reviews for the rest of the month.
4. This is sneaky. I saved the best for last! Sally is including the most generous offer ever! She wrote a book called Media Training, a quick reference manual for anyone who needs to deliver their message via “the Media”: TV, Radio or Print. So If you’ve written a book and need to get the message out there, you need this book. I’m getting one for sure. But here’s the deal. She’s giving away 10 signed copies of them to the first 10 new people who sign up for my blog Always Write and the newsletter. They are different. I promise I won’t inundate you with tons of unwanted emails, and if you don’t like it, you can unsubscribe and still get the free book. Isn’t that so cool?
I promise I won’t inundate you with tons of unwanted emails, I email only when I have something important I think you might enjoy. If you don’t like it, you can unsubscribe and still get the free book.
Isn’t that so cool of Sally? An amazing blogging opportunity that just visited your door!
