Flipboard: Become An Instant Publisher

Create Your Own Line of Magazines: Publish your writing

On my freelance writing blog, I talked about creating your own magazine in minutes, if you have an iOS device.

You create your magazines on the Flipboard app. It’s free.

Why create your own magazines?

Primarily, to publish and promote your writing. It doesn’t matter what your aim is as a writer, if you want to make money doing it, you need to get in front of people who can hire you (if you want to write for others), or buy your books.

Flipboard helps you to do that. You can add anything you  like to your magazines (as long as the content is published somewhere online), and people can subscribe to your magazines.

The new Magazines feature in Flipboard is very new, it’s only been available for three weeks. In two weeks, 500,000 Magazines were created.

As you might imagine, large companies are jumping on this feature. You can too. It took me around five minutes to create this magazine.

Give it a try — show the world how creative you are. 🙂

This Week: Pinterest, Kindle Ebooks and More


If you’re a Pinterest fan, you know how addictive the site can be, but did you also know that the site can do great things for you as a writer — it can help you to stand out from the crowd.

Consider Pinterest if you’re writing a book, or if you’re looking for writing jobs. A presence on the site gives you credibility. The site’s a lot of fun too, of course.

Farewell, Blogging for Dollars

I’m currently working on a new coaching workshop, so our Blogging for Dollars program won’t be available after this weekend. Check it out, if you’re not aware of it.

Kindle Day Job Killer — highly recommended (with goodies)

I’m heavily involved with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing program, primarily for my clients in my role as a ghostwriter, although I’m working on a couple of books of my own.

Everyone who’s selling ebooks wants to sell more of them, naturally. So when a friend recommended Kindle Day Job Killer to me, I had no hesitation in taking a look. I knew that if I could pick up just one new tip, the program would repay itself many times over.

Long story short, the program’s much better than I expected, and I recommend it. More on Kindle Day Job Killer here.

It’s been a busy week, and the weekend’s here — have a great time. 🙂
