Post Your Links Here To Promote Yourself and Your Blog!

Last Updated on: March 25th, 2019

Welcome, everyone! I’d like to invite you to post your links to your blogs by doing so in the comment section of this post! I’d also like you to post your Twitter handle, too! (If you are on Twitter, that is!) You might gain some new followers if you do! (I’ve been meeting a lot of new and interesting people lately, and am growing my followers bit by bit! I’m getting good at tweeting properly, relevantly, and usefully, too!)

Here is my old Twitter pic/screenshot:

In a few sentences, tell us:

  • what your blog is about
  • what you offer others on your website
  • your Twitter handle

There are two things you should know, too, before leaving me a comment…

The first thing you should know is that I’m hoping to engage people a little further out here in the blogosphere, and create my own little group of awesome bloggers that can interact with one another, who will also become part of the discussions that may happen in future blog posts!

Note that you can choose your level of participation, too. Jump in and participate when you feel like it, with no pressure from anyone, and sit back and observe when you want to, too!

I know that many of you would like more engagement with others, and this is your opportunity to meet someone new, who just might have more knowledge and experience than you, or who might happen to be a really interesting person who you’d like to connect with.

I know that I am looking forward to meeting some new and awesome people! 🙂


The second thing that you should know is that, in exchange for this free promotion and introduction service to each other, I am requesting that you grab my free ebook to join my mailing list! That way, we can stay in touch, get to know one another, and, most importantly, you can learn from me through my blog posts!

I generally only post once a week, usually on Mondays.

If you just want to promote yourself, and then never read anything I write in the future, that’s totally up to you. I’d also like you to share this with others on your other social networks. I’d really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word, so that I can get to know your “friends,” too!

My Blogs

Laying It Out There is my personal/author site. On it, I share recipes, true stories about my life, some of my poetry, book reviews, and information about self-publishing.

The Blind Writer is another site that is mine. The Blind Writer offers bloggers and writers direction in moving their writing forward, improving their writing and productivity, and improving their vocabulary.

I can’t wait to introduce all of you awesome people to one another this way! 🙂

Let the meeting and promotion of awesome people take place! I’ll start! This is a digital business card for Lorraine Reguly.

    Thanks in advance Lorraine!

    My blog link is and it’s titled Life and stuff.

    I’ve been blogging for almost three months now. I write to inspire and motivate others plus my dog Buffy writes about doggy issues. I try to make his posts more humorous to keep a balance. I have a Twitter account but no one from there reads my posts. Maybe i still need to learn the art of tweeting lol. I prefer readers following me on Google plus. They can click Google plus follow link on my site. Will definitely follow you.

    Thanks for having this site! I JUST started blogging like 48 hours ago. It’s gonna be mostly politics, so not really fun stuff but important.

  6. Lindsey Prince says

    I’m not entirely sure if this is the kind of blogging advertising you do, but I would appreciate the help! My name is Lindsey Prince, and me and my husband recently got married last week. We have been placed in a very difficult situation recently. I have been unable to work, due to my health problems. I am anemic and have kidney failure. I have been able to keep these issues in check for the most part, but they have all started getting worse because I cannot afford proper care or food right now. I recently moved to South Carolina to marry my husband, and we were planning on getting our own place and I was going to join the Air Force. I was able to work a part-time job at a local cafe as a server/hostess. My husband works construction with SLOAN. The schedule worked out well for us at first, because I was able to drop him off at 6:30am, then go into work during the day and pick him up at night. Our truck that we’ve been making payments on broke down on us, and is going to cost us upwards of 1,400 to fix that. I have been unable to work because I no longer have a way to get to work. He is able to make it to his job still because a coworker of his has graciously been giving him rides to and from. The flooding we had here recently put him out of work for a couple weeks at all, digging our financial situation deeper. We are having to stay with friends and pay a steep rent, plus utilities, along with all the other payments we are trying to make. We are in a rut, and can’t seem to catch a break. With all we’re having to cover already, we haven’t been able to keep anything aside for the truck or my medical needs. This is not at all how we envisioned the beginning of our marriage to go. We need help for the truck, an apartment, and some for my medical care. We would be eternally grateful to any help we can get. Thank you so much.

  7. Reece Ward says

    My girlfriend just made this blog because she has a real passion for the things she want to tell. She means the world to me and wants to make blogging something serious. Shes nearly 17 and I can guarantee she’d love if you checked out her brand new blog. Bearing in mind shes new to blogging.

  8. Lorraine,
    Thanks for the opportunity to get the word out about my blog.

    I’m an award-winning illustrator of many things and I just recently started a blog about my art called Carefree Artist ( It’s whimsical, random, funny, silly, sometimes serious, and above all original. And, while it does have links to my books and etc., it is free of third-party advertisements.

    You can also find me at as well as on Facebook ( and Pinterest (

    Thanks again and best of luck with your blog and career!

I also know alot about the disease so am usually able to answer peoples questions about it

    Help and viewers will be much appreciated.

    I had my blog for quite some time, years in fact. I blog on and off, and write topics that I thought I would like to share with my readers, such as movie reviews, personal opinions or just YouTube videos that were inspiring and interesting. It is a pleasure to get to know of you through your detailed Liebster Award Official Rules Post, Lorraine. I was always curious of the awards that the bloggers (that I follow) were nominated.

    The name of my blog is “Bits and Pieces by TheIntelligentMan”. I created an online presence that had to spill its guts in an intellectual manner after “He” had seen enough. I have spent some time observing and thinking about a lot of things that bother me. Bits and pieces serves as a platform to express myself, to a wide audience, on the issues that people hardly attend to. At first I thought no one would take it seriously since quite a number of people would rather view an image than read an entire article. However, I came at it (expression public issues/concerns) from a different angle. The articles are basically a monologue from a helpless logical “man” with very strong opinions that encourage you to think outside the box. Some of them are humorous but still not lacking the main intention, to engage you in a thoughtful conversation. These articles make up the bits and piece of our everyday life that we all have taken for granted at one point or another. I found an intelligent way to make reading “cool” again and all the pieces come with positives that can be added to life. Follow me @TheIntelligentM

  23. says

    OK. everyone I just started a blog for fun. It is very basic right now but I am improving the site as I learn more about coding. I plan I posting about anything I find cool, interesting or innovative. The current theme seems to be engines and cars as that is my field of work. However I am planning on doing posts about cool eco/smart home products and gadgets. Please share since I am just starting out I really need to bump up my viewers.

    Hi Lorraine,

    Thanks for this, it’s a very cool kick-it-forward networking initiative, awesome!

    I am a latina mom who is working on getting my eco-friendly open mic cafe up and running. A few short months ago, I added a Blog section to my site and MY OH MY am I addicted to blogging! I wish I had more time for it, as of now, I post only once a week.

    The blog is informative, intelligent and covers culture, arts, travel, Puerto Rico, green living and sustainable living. I would love to start doing some product reviews (will see how I can get this started). Blogging is a learning curve for me, trying to get noticed so thanks for this. Here is the link to my blog, would love to get feedback:

    BTW, read some of your poetry, very captivating material 🙂 I also have a Poets Corner on my site where poets can share some of their work (no subscription needed).

    Also, would LOVE to get nominated for the Liebster Award if anyone feels we are worthy (hint, hint, nudge, nudge)!

    Kind Regards.

      Anum, after a quick glance at your blog, I am wondering why you are posting a picture separately in another post from the text. You should be including the picture in the same post as the text!

  32. kate Strouts says

    Hello Lorraine

    I realise I am very late to post on here – but lets give it a try! I am just learning about blogging – 2 posts so far, no idea if anyone has read them (how do I know that?) I am just posting on my google+ account. How do I tell people where to find my blog? Wow there is so much I don’t know! My blog is about gardening. I work in a garden centre and I muse on the questions that we get a lot – and answer them.

    • says

      Kate, you should be able to tell how many people are reading your posts by looking at your stats.

      To get read, you need to promote your blog on social media sites.

      There is tons to blogging… too much to say here… but one thing to do is to comment on others’ gardening blogs, so that others will see your comments and visit your blog.

  33. Aeterna says

  35. Hi Lorraine,

    My name is Lisa Walters and I have a blog called Damsel in a Dress. I am a twenty five year old living in Newfoundland, Canada. I started writing my blog last December while I was off work on sick leave. I have been going through some rather major health problems in the last few years and the doctors keep switching my diagnosis pretty much every other week. I write with a humourous air about what it is like to be young with a debilitating disease, and especially what it is like to have health problems without knowing what exactly is happening to you. I have always turned to online support while facing health obstacles but in the last year or so I have found it very difficult because when you go undiagnosed but you do have a disease it is hard to know which corner to turn to for that help. That’s why I started my blog – to let other people in situations like mine know that they are not alone and that there are many others out there who live daily in that limbo between illness and diagnosis. My blog of course has posts not related to my health, as no one is made up of just their disease alone!

    Thanks for the opportunity to share my blog with you and your followers!

  36. Sam Adeyinka says

    Hey madam Lorraine, it’s nice to be on this promote page. It’s been a while I wanted to do this and this is I think the best time to.

    Not too waste much time.

    So my name is Sam Adeyinka, and I’m a writer, a thespian,an interviewer, and a blogger/contributor on so many other blogs, which my three blogs – Blogging Whiz(, Pro Motivator, and Techy Tyrants happens to be a part of.

    Guess myself and are you are already following on Twitter but for the sake of those that are not yet following, here’s my Twitter Handle: @samuelkermis or

    I blog about many different things, from my personal experiences to my experiences as a writer, to my latest discoveries. I sometimes interview authors or experts in their field, help others, and am honest and caring.

    I am on different social media sites, and love interacting with other great minds. I write motivational literature, and my first book will be live anytime soon.

    I am outgoing, friendly and have been through a lot. This post on my other blog might just give you a glimpse: January 1st | A Day Never To Be Forgotten!

    If you’ve been reading my blog, you’d know my blog posts are interesting, informative, and unexpected, since you’ll never know what I’m going to blog about next! I like to keep things interesting! Variety is the spice of life, you know!

    One of the quotes I live by is “Dare to be different in a world trying to make you everybody else!” I’ve since realized that men who make the difference are those who dared to be unique and not try to be just like everyone else. And if I have achieved anything in life, it would be solely because I dared to be different and leaned first-hand on the experiences of those that has gone ahead of me.

    Thanks for this distinguished opportunity to promote myself. 🙂 And I copied you blatantly and have just created something like this too on my blog. I will appreciate a comment ma’am. 😀 (Guess I have this same drive just has you)


    • says

      Hi Sam! I don’t mind that you are offering the same thing to others on your blog. I think it’s great that you want to help promote others, too! 🙂

      Good luck with your book and your many blogs! 😀

      I know it’s a lot of work, but it’s rewarding, don’t you think?

    Hi Lorraine and thanks so much for this opportunity.
    I am a 59 yr young guy from Pgh Pa who’s been in the carpentry, home remodeling industry for over 40 years. I got my 1st computer 4 yrs ago and started dabbling with the internet, but knowing nothing I didn’t get very far.
    6 months ago I lost my job and decided to give it another go since I know a little more now than I did 4 years ago.
    Since I know a great deal about carpentry and home remodeling, I decided to start a blog called Fix up This House.
    Some of my posts are informational and motivational and others provide instructions for how to fix some common household problems.
    A few months ago I started getting ideas for a few articles concerning worry. This is also something I am very familiar with since I was an excessive worrier for many years. I couldn’t put it on my site so I started a Blogger blog called worry free today.
    I deeply appreciate people like yourself and Ashley who are so willing to share. There are a lot of vultures out there willing to take your money.
    Thanks again

      I SOOO hear you, David. Thanks for sharing all that with us! I think it’s wonderful what you’ve done – and thank you for the compliment, too. Yes, Ashley (aka Mad Lemmings) is a great guy who’s got a big heart and brains, to boot! 🙂

  46. Thank a lot for this opportunity to make mention of my blog, Lorraine.

    The Franchise King Blog is the longest-running blog in franchising.

    I started it in 2006, and it’s become very popular among people that are interested in learning more about owning a franchise business.

    It’s also read by media folks, reporters etc.

    One more thing: franchise industry professionals are subscribed to it although some of them don’t like what I have to say.


    Here’s the link-

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      You are welcome, Joel. I’m happy to do it and it’s my way of giving back to the community that has helped me in the past year. “Paying it forward” is a concept more people should act on, in my opinion. The world would be a better place if more people helped one another.

    I’m a single mother & a disabled veteran from the 1st Gulf War. We lost my sons father in 2005, also a Navy Veteran. I blog about a non profit business I started recently to help other veterans in need. I create a brand new cupcake each day, explain the inspiration& post a picture.

    I struggle daily with pain and some PTSD. But baking for me is therapeutic, and giving back to my fellow veterans, well there are no words to express my emotions.

    I hope you’ll all follow my blog and check out my website for my current cupcakes, we accept donations and I ship anywhere in the contiguous 48 states. I offer vegan, gluten free & sugar substitute options and special orders. Everything us homemade from scratch, including any decorations & I try and use local ingredients found at the Farmers Market & local small businesses.

    I can’t wait to meet everyone & make new blogging friends!

    I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving & I am sending you all many blessings!!

    My site is mostly to inform Turkish speakers on various public health issues. One may also find other topics such as book reviews, travel, social media, technology, volunteer work, my own write-ups, etc. mostly in Turkish. Check out my site >>

    I am a new blogger, and just started my blog this week (last week of October, 2013). The name of my blog is: Garlic Celery Carrots: Adventures in Urban Farming. I’m documenting the efforts of my husband and I as we learn more about sustainable agriculture, and expand our garden. We live in central Indiana in the US. Here’s a link:

    Hello, I am @thewanderinpoet currently on Twitter. I am all the nom de plume’s listed on Andy Kaufman’s Kavalkade Krew actually.

    Yes, there is a crew, 18 of us. I just handle the Social Media. The rest are members at City Data Forum, and don’t like the racism, hate speech etc they see expressed on that Forum despite their Terms of Service.

    I do more than just report on that stuff though, I make a nuisance of myself on Twitter, and write poetry, hopefully funny stuff, and give whatever lessons I have learned on Twitter on my new series, Letters to Conrad.

    I have a master list of WordPress bloggers on Twitter, which are Twitter Followers only. If you’d like to be added, follow me, and I will add you to the list.

    I also have a list of WordPress bloggers who are on twitter, but don’t follow me. If they eventually follow me, I add them to the Followers list. If they don’t follow me, I will eventually unfollow them due to Twitter’s ratio rule.

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      So nice of you to post your links! I’m actually following you already – both of your accounts (the one listed here and the one that is linked to from your blog)!

      Please add me to your lists! Thanks! 😀 Since you’re a Twitter junkie and an avid reader, you’d probably like to enter a giveaway – check out my most recent post and learn how you can use Twitter to enter MULTIPLE times to win a copy of Nightmares! You can also check for the hashtag #NightmaresBookGiveaway to find out more! Whatever’s easier! 😉 You decide!

      I hope others get to know you, too! Many people subscribe to the follow up comments, so they will receive notification that you posted your links here. But I guess you already know that… 😀

      Nice to see you here!

  52. says

    Hello Lorraine! I just commented on Donna’s interview and giveaway post and am now here! What a lovely lady you sound like and what a very generous, lovely way to build community with other bloggers. I really do thank you for this opportunity. I don’t have a Twitter account yet but perhaps I need to look into this. I do have a Google Plus account, but not sure if this is the right link or not! I’ve literally only just started this account so not sure if I’ve even done it right!

    I started blogging in January as a way to document my new writing journey but is isn’t a ‘niche’ blog. Like you, I do write some poetry, but I was really nervous about sharing it at first! I have dabbled in poetry all my life (although I’ve never studied it) and I never dared let it see the light of day!

    My blog, A View From My Summerhouse, is where I share my stories from my past and weave them into the present. Through a series of circumstances over a period of many years – got divorced after a 22 year marriage, moved back to the UK from California after living there for 17 years (I’m British, my ex is American and my children were born in America, apart from my eldest son who was born in the UK but was 3 when we left), lived as a single mum to three children before remarrying 7 years ago, re-entered the workforce and retrained as a legal secretary in probate and conveyancing in my mid forties, then lost my job at the same time as my daugther’s diagnosis with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of 18, 2 years ago – I came to writing full time, phew!!

    All my life I have wanted to write. When I was faced with this situation and in becoming my daughter’s full time carer as well as just plain ‘mum’ I made some major changes in my life. With my husband’s full support I decided to use the time at home to at long last pursue my writing career.

    I had already signed up to a creative writing course with The Writer’s Bureau because I had no clue how to prepare and submit manuscripts to editors. Much to my ongoing amazement, I have now had two articles published in Prima magazine and Your Cat magazine, as well as a short story, also in Prima, and I recently won a flash fiction competition on another blog! I still can’t believe it!

    I have also had a book burning deep within me most of my life. It is a memoir from a three year period in my young life when I was married to an American GI who died of leukeamia when he was 21. I know I have to tell his story but it is not an easy story to tell.

    Blogging has given me a community that I never thought existed, having met so many wonderful, talented, generous and such kind people from all over the world. I’ve made some amazing new friends. The support that we can give each other in this sometimes lonely writer’s world is invaluable, and once again Lorraine, I thank you so much. I really look forward to following your blog 🙂

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Sherri, it is so nice to meet you! I have already checked out your blog, and left you a few comments! I love your writing style and voice. You’ve been through so much; I feel close to you already. You’re very open and honest – much like myself. I feel the start of a friendship!

      When you are ready to, you WILL tell your/his story, BTW. The toughest stories to tell are often the most important ones. 😉 Hang in there!

      Writing has certainly been a great outlet for you, as has blogging. I can relate!

      I’m soooo looking forward to seeing more of you! Thanks for stopping by – and for re-blogging Donna’s post.

      I’m so excited about the GIVEAWAY!

        • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

    I love this idea! It’s so nice to help connect everyone together! Thanks for inviting me to post. I blog mainly about young adult books and my life as a teenage reader. Paperbacks may be going extinct, but I still have a whole zoo full of them on my bookshelf! I’m still a novice when it comes to blogging, so my posts are still scattered.

      So happy you stopped by, Erin! I love your energy and warmth, and your bookmark fetish! LOL (Yes, I read your post!)

  60. Hi Lorraine,
    What a great site! I actually stumbled on it by following another blog on WLC. I’m new to the blogging world so I try to visit a lot of different ones. I am also an author but I blog about a little of everything. I am an avid reader and dog lover that enjoys laughing almost as much as breathing. I don’t think I’d survive without doing both…often! I belong to several writing forums and groups but am not familiar with any that’s main focus is on blogging. I’d love to get some that you find helpful and fun. I have signed up for your newsletter and am following you on Twitter. My Twitter name is mk_clinton so you’ll know who I am when I show up unannounced. My blog/website is please stop by for a visit.

    Hi Lorraine. Thank you for this opportunity! I have to say I am learning a lot from the few posts I’ve read on your blog already (the Liebster Award..and now I learned where the “Like” and “Follow” buttons are).

    I am a new blogger with the current goal of staying anonymous while blogging random stuff. My primary blog is Improv Artz (, where you can learn about DIY projects and random creations that I have come across. For example, I needed a belt hanger, so I made one from coat hangers and posted what I did to make it. I also stumbled across an interesting food event where a company created country’s flags out of food and shared them…more ideas for decorating food?

    I am also one of the contributors to a writing/comic blog (, which really is just random! We don’t really have a theme going yet, but maybe we will at some point. Suggestions are welcome~

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      You are welcome. Exposing our blogs to more people is needed when you’re a new blogger. I’m happy to help, which is why I wrote this post! 🙂


  64. Hi Lorraine,

    What an interesting idea. I have been blogging sporadically on other topics for a few years, but I just launched a new blog to discuss my life with an ADHD husband and two ADHD children. I’m hoping to reach out to, connect with, and maybe help others living with ADHD. The blog is part therapy, part information and part entertainment.

    I’m a thirty-something part time professional living in the United States. I have two kids, ages seven and eight, a cat and a dog. I love gardening, animals and nature. I look forward to reading your posts.

    Thank you!

    My name is Ramisa and I am an ordinary girl. I also like writing. But my blog mainly consists of things I want to say, words I’d like for the world to hear, and truly focusing on the important parts of life. Other than that, I also offer free resources for writers, students, graphic designers, etc (I love promoting helpful products!) And I also blog about beautiful things: music, art, literature, etc.
    Hope you stop by! ♥

    Having had the opportunity of chatting with Lorraine last week, I can attest to her being a wealth of information on writing and successfully navigating the bewildering maze of how to’s for beginners to both the blogging and writing communities. Do yourself the favor for finding her, you’ll be so glad you did!

    On a personal note, thank you so much Lorraine, for both your patience with me and the power/net issues. I still very much want to finish our conversation and hope you feel the same. 🙂

      Yes, Arleen, I think that helping each other out, even when you *aren’t* really *that* interested in reading what the other person has to say, sometimes but you do just to support them! 🙂

      I try to get to everyone each week, but sometimes miss…as we all do. I generally reciprocate comments, though, and that usually keeps us going back and forth with one another!

      I like that we have connected, too! 🙂 Oh, and thanks for the birthday wishes! I’m looking forward to tonight!

    Great way to promote your blog and other’s blogs! My blog started out as a personal finance blog; it’s still based on that but now has evolved into a “pursue your passion” type blog where the main goal is to take control of your money so you can do what you want in life!

    Hi Lorraine
    Thank you for inviting me here. I see that I’m going to come back time and again to peruse all of these blogs! What a great idea. Thank you for this opportunity to connect with others.

    I have several blogs because I am a bonafide “passion pluralite,” as it appears many others here are as well. It would most likely be more effective to pick just one or two and be consistent with them, however, that’s not how I am built.

    I am an artist/illustrator/graphic designer first. On my art blog I share how I’ve done art pieces, about what brings me joy, techniques for achieving effects, and this year the efforts of my “image-a-day” project: . Even though I have not posted as many images as the name of the project implies, I have worked on creating them most every day. I’ve been playing with combining my photography, paintings, drawings and graphic skills in Photoshop to create new designs for a new line of cards and prints on Serenity-Cards site – blog:

    I am also a writer and a poet. My most prolific blog is . I’ve been writing a short inspirational poem for my husband most every workday since we got married, and we’ve been posting them since 2009, I think. Part of that blog is a section called Friends of the Daily Napkin. I invite any of you poet’s that would like to share your uplifting poems ( and link to your poetry blog) to check it out. I do monitor and make sure that the poems are appropriate for general audiences, so I will have to moderate your submission, but I would love to help spread your poetry. I’ve not had a lot of people submit, but our site has had over 30K hits and I would love to expand on that.

    Please check out my blogs, or tweet me: I look forward to more connection.

    I am a former Marketing & Sales Executive, now the Publisher and Executive Director for Finding Our Way Now LLC, researching, producing and creating all the content, illustrations and images for the company and website.

    I am by nature a storyteller & teacher. My work now allows me the opportunity to share the stories I used to teach lessons I learned in life and in the workplace through my podcasts and written short stories. All this has rekindled my passion for drawing which I use in my stories and podcasts. I love to cook, so it was natural that I would share all the fun & easy recipes I develop or find. I am lucky enough to live in the wine country. Partnering with multiple marketing and PR firms has allowed me the opportunity to share information about the various wines I find. Last but not least is my ever-popular art page where I demonstrate how I create my drawings.

    What makes this all the more interesting is I am dyslexic. So the act of writing for me is a serious challenge. It often takes me four times longer to create an article then it does for others without this disability. I have never been one to shy away from a challenge and work hard to overcome my dyslectic eye to deliver a quality & entertaining product.

    All of that said I look forward to you joining in on the conversion on 🙂

    Hi Lorraine,
    Great Idea for a post and I love to promote myself. Your blog is great, by the way and your bio is phenomenal.
    Everyone, My name is Robert C Price and I’m an aspring writer. I still have the 9-5 job for now, but I know soon I’ll do my own thing, so it’s only a matter of time. I am the keeper of a blog called From A Clogged Mind ( There, I write poems, short stories and musings that come from this clogged mind of mine. Please stop by and take a look and tweet me @RobertCPrice. I’m on Facebook @ Have a great day everyone.

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Thanks, Ana! You’re a legend in the blogosphere, and I’m guessing that’s why you didn’t want to “promote” yourself on my *little* blog? LOL

      Feel free to reply with specific links you’d like to draw some of us *newbies who’ve never heard of you* to! 🙂

    Hi Lorraine!

    Thank you for the opportunity for us bloggers to get a chance to network and grow! We all appreciate it.

    My blog, This College Dropout ( is mainly a book blog which chronicles the reading, writing, advice, and resources learned from an almost-graduated college dropout who ended up a freelance marketing assistant with a primary specialty in working with indie/self-published authors. (That’s why you will probably see a lot of indie books on the site!)

    Continued success…
    Charles Franklin
    PS You have come a long way since we have first communicated, Lorraine! I’m so proud of you and wish you the best!

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Charles, you make me blush…

      Thanks for the compliment!

      It brings me pleasure to connect people with one another! Human interaction in times of such technological domination is essential if we are to flourish… don’tcha think?

    Hi Lorraine,

    Thanks very much for the offer, but I won’t take you up on it as I object to having to join a list to take part, sorry.

    I have subscribed to your RSS feed so I can keep up to date with your new posts but joining “another” list is not something I’d do to leave a comment.

    Thanks for adding a link to my “promote yourself” post, please feel free to come over and do so. You don’t have to join my list to do that 😉

    All the same, I wish you the best of luck Lorraine 🙂


    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Thanks, Barry.

      I’m learning by experimentation. I’m still somewhat of a newbie blogger!

      But…I’m trying. You have to give me credit for that! 🙂

  84. Steve Myring @molchesterltd says

    Hi Lorraine, great blog! My business and blog is all about servicing web based companies around the world with SEO and online marketing needs, peopke think that if they spend ‘000s on a website that they will get new customers, thats not the case as that expensive website might not show up in organic search results in Google. Thats where we come in, we optimise each site so that they move up the rankings and start to see visitors arrive at their site through natural search.

  85. Glynis Jolly says

    My introduction probably won’t be as long as most but here goes…
    As you can see, my name is Glynis. In reality, I’m a housewife. With this said though, I am also an aspiring writer. I’ve had several blogs in the past 8 years. I’m guessing that the number is 8 but I could be wrong. Only 2 of them have had a definite niche. One was all about blogging. The other one was centered around personal growth. Although my current blog’s tag line is “my attempts to start writing seriously”, it’s content can go in many different directions.

    After these 8+ years of blogging, my advice to new bloggers is NOT to spend money on your own domain. The hassles that go with it will prevent you from what you want to do, blog. Having a sub-domain instead may be more beneficial anyway because of the instant access to other bloggers.

    P.S. Thank you for this opportunity, Lorraine.

  87. Hi Loraine, glad to be here and share in your lofty idea. Purplerays is about spiritual enlightenment and self-improvement. It digs deep into the meaning and essence of life, without prejudice, bias or I-know-it-all attitude.
    The guiding philosophy is: Truth is like gold, it will still be gold whether in the hand of the Pope, the Dalai Lama or any other religious leader.
    For this earthlife I bear the names Udo Jonathan Ndah. But, Purplerays is not about me so, my personality is almost completely overshadowed by the concept of the blog. The blog is given a life of its own!

    Hi Lorraine,

    I am pleased to meet you!

    Thanks for this great offer and the opportunity to read your blogs as an added bonus!

    I love to be succinct with my writing with only pertinent points revealed so here goes.

    My name is Christine, I live in Australia and am the creator of the Zen School for Creative People. I have had my own arts practice for many years and am still studying at tertiary level. My school talks about Zen philosophy with regard to making artwork, gives quotes,and step-by-step “how to” tutorials on painting and drawing.

    I have an e book in progress, write blogs, articles and do workshops here in Australia.

    My philosophy is about breaking rules, striving for impulsiveness, vigor, flexibility and confidence in your artwork.

    Thank you for helping others! I am really looking forward to reading your interesting posts.
    My URL is I do not have a twitter handle but am on Facebook and Instagram.

  89. Hi Lorraine, I subscribed to your blog not long ago. I think I found you on LinkedIn, but I could be wrong.

    A little about me, well I’ve been married for 43 years. We have three grown daughters, who have blessed us with eight grandchildren. I also love animals. I have four inside cats (the oldest is now seventeen) and two dogs. All my pets are rescue animals and they are now my babies.

    I began writing seriously in 2008. I’m now a published author. My first book, “Nightmares”, was published in May 2013 by MuseItUp Publishing, a small press in Canada. The book is a young adult paranormal/mystery novel. I just completed the second book of what I hope will become a series and it is now with my editor.

    I do have a blog and I write about various stuff, some personal, things on writing, bits of my book or what I’m working on. I don’t post as often as I should. I’m hoping that will change too, when I retire in a couple of years or sooner if my book sells a million copies. 🙂

      Hey, Donna Jean! (Or is it Donna? Or does it matter?) Thanks for becoming a part of my online “family”! It’s great having you here! 🙂

      • Thanks Lorraine and thank you for inviting me. You can call me Donna or Donna Jean. I’ll answer to both. All my social media areas and my book are under Donna Jean McDunn. I like to keep things simple and consistent just in case someone wants to find me.

        • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

          Ok, DJ it is, then. Just kidding, Donna Jean!;)

          I’ve answered to “Hey, you” on more than one occasion…but, then again, we all have, at some point, haven’t we? LOL

          Welcome, Donna Jean!

          I answer to Lorraine, but have used Lorraine Marie on several occasions. I’ve decided to stick with Lorraine. It’s just easier. For now, anyway!

  90. CeeLee says

    Hi there Lorraine,

    I’m Christine Lee but you can call me CeeLee
    (easier to yell when mad, so say reliable sources).
    I’ll repeat Deevra’s thank you, as it’s a really nice thing you’re doing
    and much appreciated. 🙂

    My blog is Swim In The Adult Pool at: http://
    Despite what the name might suggest, LOL it’s not what you think!
    It’s a blog geared towards life with adult ADHD and all of the fun that entails.

    Parenting, relationships, snafus, you name it. Life isn’t easy with adult ADHD,
    I attempt to tell the lighter side of it. Because at the end of the day we all have problems.
    And we all need a giggle or two, even if it’s at my expense and usually, it is 😉

    My life is under the firm rule of Murphy’s Law and my mind is the stand up comic.
    Volatile combo and packs quite the punch to the unwary.
    Operating under the theory of anything that can happen, and generally does, it’s never dull at my house. Not living in the boonies and dwelling uneasily among rednecks. I’m acclimating slowly though. Snakes, spiders and creepy crawlies though, I draw the line at.

    Dealing with a rip roaring case of ADHD, a redneck other half with a fondness for yelling “Yeah!” for as of yet, unknown reasons and a son who goes by Duckling, yeah it’s always interesting.That’s one kid determined to give me white hair before I want it, possibly through Nerf gun fire.

    It was because of Duck actually, that I started blogging in the first place. I wanted to show him that you can succeed at what you love, despite life’s oppositions. I wanted him to see and understand why trying is so important and what fun it can be in doing just that.
    He needed a hero, but I apparently suck at that so instead, I am his inspiration for laughter. Eh…can’t win them all I suppose.

    But writing, I’ve done that my entire life. I know the thrill of getting what’s inside your head out and making it just right, so others can share in it. I know how not writing is as easy for me to accomplish as not breathing. I know that I’m doing what I love. I just want to see how far it can take my dream of getting published. So far, just like the magic 8 ball might say,
    “That remains to be seen.”

    I’m good with adventure, so I’m still pecking and dodging Nerf gun bullets. The mean ones with suction cup end that are licked by a Duck prior. 🙂

    Thank you again for the chance for me to babble a bit.

    M twitter is at:
    But you usually can find me at the adult pool. 🙂


    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Hi, CeeLee! It’s great to meet you! You’ll fit right in with the rest of us! Welcome!
      Oh, and I just sent you a tweet. Also, I think you’ll benefit from @Maxhansen’s twitter guidebook, too. Check him out, go to his blog and grab it for free! He’s super-smart and shares his knowledge freely!

      • CeeLee says

        Thank you so much for the add and the help.
        As a total noob, I’ll take all the resources I can get! 🙂

        I just followed Max on Twitter and will be finding that guidebook ASAP. With Twitter I can-well…LOL
        See above! 😉

        • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

          Sure thing, CeeLee! Anytime you have questions, I’ll try my best to help you! (If you are super-stuck, and I can help, that is!) 😀

            • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

              Me, too! There are some really good great people around here! If you’re not on LinkedIn, you should be, and join the Bloggers Helping Bloggers Group. You’ll meet tons of fabulous peeps!

              • CeeLee says

                That was something I was debating.
                I wasn’t sure whether that was something
                I could do with any results (tech challenged)
                but I’m willing to try 🙂

                You have really made my day brighter,
                It’s hard to find what you’re looking for
                when you don’t quite know what it is
                that you’re looking for in the first place. 🙂

                Yeah, say that 3 times fast 😉

                • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

                  It’s not that hard. I did it, and I’m the most non-techie person I know!

                  Happy to have made your day. Now mine has been made. 🙂

  91. Hi Lorraine,

    I was just on Barry Well’s post where he was “ranting” about comments and I followed your link over here. After looking for your most recent post, I discovered this. This is so nice of you to let us get some free promotion. We’ve been connected online for a while now but I hadn’t signed up for your updates. So, mission accomplished.

    I blog about WordPress, SEO, Social Media and any other interesting tips that I believe can benefit business owners and entrepreneurs to build their brand and promote their business online.

    My blog is and my Twitter handle is @KeepUpWeb. I’m also active on LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook and several other social networking sites.

    I have two favorite sayings when it comes to networking online. One is “We can all learn from each other” and the second is “Everything you do is either a relationship builder or a relationship destroyer”.

    Thanks for the opportunity. I hope to meet some new people here!

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      Yes, I read Barry’s comments rant, and am grateful that I have chosen to moderate my comments, too! In fact, this blog has its own “Commenting” page (as I am sure you’ve noticed).

      Another saying I’d like to add is one that indie author Melissa Bowersock is famous for, which is “Co-operation, not competition!” I think that this attitude is one of the best, especially in the blogging and writing worlds! We should be here to support one another, and band together, regardless of our differences. 🙂

  92. says

    Thank you for this opportunity, Lorraine.
    A little about me: I’m a wife, mother, and grandmother, but you can read all about that on my wordpress web page. Although I have been writing and journaling for over 40 years, I recently decided to pursue writing as a career. I started my Blog in December 2012.
    My blog is very eclectic. I write some of my own musings, follow several memes, dabble a little in poetry, have an ‘Aromatherapy’ section, book reviews, and short stories. I’m currently working on two novels, but you want find them on my webpage, just yet. You can have some fun figuring out which short stories I am turning into novels.
    Besides reading and writing, I love to garden, play with my dogs and cats, and, of course, being a grandma.
    I look forward to learning and sharing with all of you.

    You can find me on most social media sites.

    Hi Lorraine,

    Thank you for the open invitation; such a kind idea. I just discovered your blog last week, so please don’t think me presumptuous for participating. Besides, I always enjoy meeting fellow writers and discovering other blogs.

    My name is Erica Hayes and I’m a professional copywriter based in Seattle, Washington. After years as a cubicle-dwelling copywriter, I went freelance in June 2012. However, as I went freelance after being laid off, I didn’t have the right tools and knowledge to make it work right out of the gate and I’m back in a cube. On the bright side, it’s the best cube I’ve ever had. 🙂 When this is over, I’ll be back (and better prepared) for full-time freelancing.

    I’m quite the bibliophile and read, on average, 3-4 books at a time. A couple of weekends ago, I walked out of Powell’s Books (one of America’s largest new and used bookstores) with 22 new reads. It took me less than an hour to pick them all out. A new record!

    Other happy addictions include chocolate and rubber duckies, of which I currently have 27.

    My blog, RubberDuckyCopywriter, focuses on dealing with the emotional ups and downs of being a creative professional in general and a writer specifically. With the occasional sprinkle of useful information and booknerdness. (Hey, writers need to read, too.)

    I usually post once every 12-14 days and try to keep it to when I have something useful to say because I don’t want to be one of those bloggers who flood people’s inbox and WordPress readers with useless information. A trickle will do. 🙂

    Twitter: @JustDuckyWriter

    Note: Twitter is experiencing technical difficulties at the moment but when it’s back up and running, I promise to come back and help spread your word. Again, thank you for the open invitation.

    • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

      It’s great to meet you (again), Erica! Looking forward to interacting with you further! I think you’ll like the other commenters here; we’re a fabulous bunch! The more the merrier, too! Welcome! 🙂

      • Lorraine Marie Reguly says

        Deevra… um… shouldn’t that be a tweet to Erica??? LOL

        Glad to see connections are being made! YAY!!! 🙂

  94. Deevra Norling says

    First of all Lorraine – this is a wonderful and generous idea! Thank you for giving people a chance to introduce themselves and meet other bloggers! 🙂

    Right, so a wee bit about me-self! I live in Cape Town, South Africa and in 2012 quit my job as a brand manager to pursue a career in writing. I only got going on it in April this year (so that’s only about 5 months). It has been a huge learning curve and I continue to learn something new every day. The freelance road is not easy – it takes a lot of work and hustle. But I do enjoy working for myself and not answering to a boss!

    I have an adventurous spirit and love travelling, exploring new places, trying new foods and meeting different types of people. The world fascinates me!

    I am also a huge animal lover and am the owner of a VERY spoilt grey tabby cat called Magic! Animals is my other passion and I do want to find a way to get more involved with that as well. For now though I’ve been concentrating on getting the writing side of things up and running.

    Apart from that I love winter, reading, music, spending quality time with friends and have an unabated addition to chocolate!

    I look forward to meeting new people here, making great connections and sharing ideas, suggestions, etc. and helping others.

    My blog at the moment is focused more on my experiences along this freelance road and hopefully that helps other writers along the way. Please do subscribe and keep in touch. I don’t have a weekly schedule of blog posts at the moment – I write when I have the time and when I feel I have something useful to write about. So you will not be bombarded with too many emails. 😉
    Twitter: @deevranorling

    I am also on Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook (although my FB account is really just for friends and socialising).

    Take care everyone! 🙂
