Sharing is Caring: A Mash-up Moment

Welcome to my first weekly mash-up.  Hope some of these resonate for you as they have for me. 

Writing Wisdom

Do Writers Need Presentation Skills?  Jenny Hansen not only provides the answer (yes!), but also gives us some tips and tricks for success. 

Author Kate Wood shares some nuggets of wisdom she gained while participating in a Bob Meyer workshop and the “ah ha” about Fear and Change that resulted for her.

In How Do You React When Strangers Read Your Work?, Jami Gold talks about the dilemma writers face when gaining a new audience.  

Moving forward on Works in Progress is important for writers and in 6 Ways to Supercharge Your Writing, we learn some great tips for making goals while still enjoying the joy of writing.

Social Media Magic

Have you been feeling the pressure to join  Google +?  Are you freaking out over having to adopt yet another social media platform?  Then slow down, breathe and read what Kristen Lamb, author of “We Are Not Alone–The Writer’s Guide to Social Media,” has to say in G+ Circles – Good Idea for Writers or High School Revisited?

As a newbie to Twitter, Julie Isaac’s The Top 10 Tips (+2) for Making the  Most of #FollowFriday on  Twitter helped both explain the purpose of #FF to me and give best practices.

Fun Finds

I am a semi-reformed reality TV addict.  I say semi-reformed because while I’ll watch most new offerings at least once, I won’t return–except for the performance shows.  The latest show I fell in love with was The Voice, which celebrated talented singers for their singing versus pimped backstories and drama.  Here is the recent performance of “Time After Time” by winner Javier Colon while on the show’s tour.  I love the pure emotion in his voice.

    Wow, Barbara! Thanks for including me in your first mash-up. That’s special.

    I had not seen all these posts so I’m just gonna get link happy for the next 20 mins. 🙂

  5. Hey Barbara,
    So what does that mean that you only return for the performance shows? (Obviously I don’t watch reality television!)
    Bridgette

    • Hi Bridgette! I’ll get you hooked on some reality TV soon enough! I can’t stay away from the shows with some performing element like American Idol, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Got Talent. Whoa…that’s a lot of shows. :-0 I’ve let go of keeping up with some others such as Big Brother and Survivor.
