Winners and a Plan

file0001024202589Wow! What an exciting and fun time I had last week. It was so neat to see all the responses on the survey, and such a blessing to read all the comments on the posts, especially the ones on the sweepstakes post. You guys are awesome!

So after going over the results from the survey, I’ve determined a few things . . .

You guys are overwhelmingly women . . . but there are still a couple of men floating about. I like to think I can appeal to both genders if you’re looking for tips on everything from writing to marketing.

The majority of the people who responded are in my age group! This is nice because I know that we can relate to life stuff on a similar level.

Most of you are pre-published or self-published. This tells me that I am branding myself the way I intended and attracting my target audience. Look out because I have a lot of stuff coming up in the next few months to help you all get to the next level!

It looks like you all are interested in the tips on writing/editing and marketing, not so much on the goals, organization, and life stuff. While I don’t think I’m going to cut those out completely, since I do think they are important, I’ll try to keep them down to once a month.

Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to get the first shot at these as they come out this summer/fall.

As for my Friday posts, it looks like I’ll be kicking out the Happy & Healthy posts. It didn’t seem that as many people were interested in it now as there were at the beginning of 2015. So, I’ll have two Fab 5 Friday posts with one Tea with Me and one writing update post.

Thank you all so much for your input. I appreciate your help in making this blog serve you based on your needs–and not necessarily just what I want to write.

So, without further ado, I’m excited to announce the winners of the Blog Re-Launch Sweepstakes . . .


Winner of the $50 Amazon Gift Card is . . . 

Colette Pedersen



And now . . .


The winner of the FULL COPYEDIT (by me!) is . . .





Congrats to both of these amazing ladies. E-mail me soon so we can talk details.
