I think University of Houston has one of the best creative writing program. :). Check it out. Or you can try School of Art Institute of Chicago. They have BA for writing Emphesis. Good luck!

Is there a way I can convince her to start blogging?

My mother keeps writing stuff in her diary, and it’s become a passion now. I got to know that she harbored a secret dream of becoming a writer. I told her that she should start blogging, but she says the computer isn’t for her.

Maybe she’s just uncomfortable with putting her life online. There are many blogs where writers are hired to make articles that have nothing to do with themselves. Check that out and show her that she could be a paid writer from her own home. That’s why the computer is so cool.

Which is the best company for custom book publishing?

I want to publish a book, so I have searched on the net and I found the following:,

Do you know if those are the best or do you know which company is the one to go to publish a book? Thanks.

I suggest you look over this site. It lists a bunch of publishing scams:

My suggestion… If you really want to be successful with your book, is to take the traditional route of publishing. Get an agent, and sign on with a major publishing company. This is the safest way, and if you have an agent, he or she can give you advice on which companies are the best and try to sell your book for as much money as possible. And then when you sign on with a company, they help you with covers and marketing your book.

If you wanna take that route, first get an agent. 🙂

Improve Communication for Effective Online Branding

Whenever we talk about the elements of online branding people start listing few names like, blog, social media, search engine marketing, networking etc. Do you think that having these elements in your marketing mix will make you a super brand!

If you are a twitter user, you will often see that hundreds of people are following you for no reason. Ok, they have a reason. Many twitter marketers think that once they start following you, you will also start following them as a return. Thus, if the twitter marketer follows 1000 twitters, he or she may get 100 followers in return.  Is it a good marketing strategy for your brand? Do you really think that those 100 people following you have any reason to uphold your brand?

The same thing happens with different social bookmarking websites. To promote a brand or business, marketers often start a new account in different social media websites and start bookmarking all the pages of their website. These profiles do not normally have anything to do with their personal choices and companies often support this on the ground that this is just an official space.

As far as blogging is concerned, many companies add a blog with their corporate website. They mainly use this blog to tell about their products or services. They often claim that as it is a corporate blog, it should only talk about their products and services. Some blogs even exclude the industry from their concern list. Now, is there any difference between these blog posts and a company sponsored advertisement or press release! Recent surveys by independent sources prove that people do not believe corporate blog as far as information is concerned. They prefer personal recommendation, online newspapers and even social networks more than a corporate blog. Just to add, if you run a blog just to talk about your products and services, how are you different from a press release syndicator?

We have another very interesting thing to note here. What if you install two blogs in your website and name them “news releases” and “blog” respectively! People will expect different things from those two links. A blog post (more personal) is different from a news story (more official) and people expect different things from these two.

However, after all, you are publishing your own stories in that blog and this reduces. This is enough to deteriorate the trust factor further. If you want to make the most out of a blog, make sure that you write about your industry there to win some trust from your target market.

Blogs and social networks do not necessarily mean that you are into “web 2.0” era. In web 2.0 scenario, people are bothered about the transparency in business. It is about opening up different avenues to communicate directly with the target market. It is less about selling product – it is about developing a lasting relationship with the target market in the most cost effective way and in a one to one environment. T is about winning the trust of your target market as a reliable source.

Once you can use these basic elements in your online branding and marketing mix, you will gain the edge over your competitors.

Freelance Writing: The Most Practical and Profitable Markets

What you don’t want to be doing as a freelance writer is spending your time flogging your wares in all the wrong places. You don’t want to be fussing around putting your resume on or other types of job boards. There are very few places that post ads for freelancers on actual job boards. Actually I’ve found that post for jobs on these writing sites usually come to less than five a month.

Because we are looking at a self sustaining system for online writing income we need to get stuck straight into the proven profitable markets, which are:

1. Bidding on the auction sites
2. Selling yourself on the live advice lines and;
3. Self publishing

Consider these 3 areas to be the most recommended and reliable sources of income: by myself and other professional writers.

Auction Sites
As mentioned previously and are the main players here. They are both outsourcing forums that allow writers to post their profiles and bid on projects that are posted by buyers looking for projects that they want completed. These sites don’t specialise in just writing but all kinds of services that can be outsourced such as graphic design, website design and administrative services.

Both sites have different membership levels which will affect your bidding privileges.
Guru is the bigger of the two and has the cheaper membership rates but they also tend to pay less for jobs and their customer service isn’t as good as that at Elance.

DON’T bother with the free membership option at either site. You will only get access to the lowest paying jobs and will be competing with hundreds of others for work.

Charging For Phone Consulting is one of the largest and oldest live advice sites on the web with the money you make being directly deposited into your bank account every fortnight (or paid by cheque every month for citizens outside of the US).

They will allow you to post four free profiles per three allowed phone numbers which acts as a great business card for your online business. You can get work directly from individuals who call you on keen; they will just assign your over the phone. is a site of aggregated service providers that allows you to charge per minute for your own online chat. You can sell advice or consulting services in nay of several categories that relate to writing, of which there are a number.

Self Publishing allows you to upload content for sale on their site. It must be content that you have rights to and you can set whatever price and conditions you want on the sale. will let you upload ebooks for free and will even convert them into PDF format for you. Your customer has the option of having your book sent to them as hardcover or emailed to them in the PDF format.
