I am an avid Twitter user -- left to my own devices, I would tweet all day. I like to connect with many other people, mostly moms, who are interested in the same topics: natural birth, breastfeeding, attachment parenting, green and frugal living, homeopathy, and using social media. I also love to provide my followers (2550+) with valuable retweets they might benefit from.
I think social media is amazing in that it allows anyone with a message to get it out to many people — without it costing much. If you like my blog, consider connecting with me via Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. I always like to hear and learn from like-minded people :)

Be The Media is one of those book you want all of your family and friends to know about – I can’t stop talking about the impact is has had on how I think about my ability to make a living with what I love — writing and editing. I know so many talented people who are struggling to make ends meet, I want them to all profit from reading this eye-opening book.

He backs up all of his extensive information with contributions and testimonials from leading media authorities and celebrities. Start leveraging today’s new methods of distribution to connect with your audience directly and keep more of your royalties and rights! (read more
