I’m completing my Virtual Blog Tour (organized by Nikki Leigh) on June 30th. The tour is promoting my newest book Whale Hunting Women, and I have been hosted by more than 25 bloggers, podcasters, radio interviewers and book reviewers.
I have met extraordinary women and men on this tour, all of whom have been gracious and generous in sharing their forums with me. This week I wanted to introduce four more of the women bloggers that I’ve met along the way.
Are you seeking Higher Ground? You’ll find Rebecca Benston at 2 Higher Ground . What a marvelous and inspirational site! Rebecca writes about her “Five S’s: self-esteem, self-defense, self-sufficiency, self-actualization and self-awareness.” Each month she features a woman who is reaching higher ground and draws attention to successful women who are contributors to an upcoming book. Rebecca maintains an amazon.com bookstore, reviews inspirational and motivational books for women, and has a timeline of influential women on her website.
Do you like Books and Authors? Joyce Anthony maintains that site for you: Books and Authors. Joyce often devotes three or four days to exploring a single book and its author. She will describe the book, review it, and conduct interviews with the author. Her blog is a great source of up-to-date information on new releases. Most recently she reviewed Nikki Leigh’s newest, Book Promo 201.
And even more books and authors? Visit MaAnna Stephenson’s Just the FAQs blog http://justthefactsblog.blogspot.com. MaAnna is a consummate interviewer presenting authors in blog and podcast formats. Her own series of books offers JTF advice on web marketing—what she calls “books for non-geeks.” You’ll find lots of advice about writing, illustrating, promoting, and developing your small business.
How about building your referral network? A blogger who’s my friend offline as well as online is Hazel Walker, who runs the Business Networking Institute (BNI) and The Referral Institute in Indianapolis. Hazel’s blog is all about how to build your business through building a network of referral partners, people who know your business, who know exactly what you are looking for, and who actively promote your business on your behalf. Of course, you do the same for them. Hazel’s work takes networking to a whole new level!
It’s my privilege to introduce these women. Their blogs will inspire you, motivate you, lead you to great resources, and help you grow your business.
