Even though you may be an an experienced blogger, there is always room for improvement. No one is perfect, but reaching new personal heights as a blogger is easily accomplished by using the checklist of tips offered in  my guest post on Dear Blogger.

You can also read an excerpt from the ebook in this post. It includes additional tips that are not in my ebook, 20 Blog Post Must-Haves, too, since I wanted to give people an idea of my expertise as a blogger. Plus, not everyone can afford to spend $5 in today’s rough economy.

If you are one of the few people who can, and want to improve your blogging skills, you can also choose to get all 20 Blog Post Must-Haves – designed to help you improve your blog posts! The price? A $4.99 cup of coffee (with muffin or doughnut – whatever you prefer).  I wanted to keep it affordable, even though it is easily worth $20.  FREE! Simply sign up to my newsletter.

I wish that I had this ebook available to me. Now it is! I use this checklist every time I create a blog post! It is indispensable to me, and I know you will feel the same way about it that I do. A recently published article about adding tags to your posts was just published, too, and if it had been published last week, it would have made it into my book!

It really is a good book. It received many RTs (retweets) on Twitter – and connected me with a few more influential people.

Some of the wonderful people who helped me get the word out are:

Danny Iny from FirePole Marketing who now has a new website design.
