Non-smarmy platform building for writers and bloggers
Do you enjoy the creative stuff like writing or blogging but hate hearing about promotion and “building a platform”?
Kirstin Oliphant of the Create If Writing blog and podcast hears you loud and clear.
Her goal, as she states on her website is to “help writers, bloggers, and creatives like YOU turn readers into raving fans and learn to make a living doing what you love…without being smarmy.”
I met Kirstin at Podcast Movement this year. She was sitting off by herself working at her computer when I caught up with her.
I seem to have a good sense about people and I can usually spot the thought leaders and achievers.
It turns out, she was presenting at the event this year.
After I got home, I checked out her podcast and website. I found a wealth of information for people who want to make a living doing what they love without having to sell out to the man.
Does that describe you? I’ll bet it describes many of us.
You really need to check out the Create If Writing website. She’s got some great resources to help you build your email list, grow your blog, write and publish your book, and – writer nerd alert – she loves the Oxford comma.
Even if you don’t see yourself as the creative type, you owe it to yourself to go to her website – createifwriting.com, sign up for her emails, and start learning how to build that platform… without being smarmy.
Do you have your own platform? Tell me about it.
