Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge – Vigor & Energy

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge this week, the prompt is Vigor and Energy, Synonyms Only.

I was invited to do a PowerPoint presentation on Thursday, September 22, 2018, to a group of writers and authors. Some members of this group have published many books without many sales. The coordinator of this group asked me to demonstrate how to create a blog as part of networking and promotion of their books.


In addition to the process of creating a blog, I included some websites from WordPress and some blogs provide blogging tips and support, networking, and promotion. These blogs have been a personal help to me. I was able to answer their questions regarding the following blogs.

There was a question and answer at the end of the presentation. Some members expressed that they were busy with their current involvement. My response was it was a matter of priority. It would be their choice whether or not to promote their books. There are local activities of book promotion. A book signing event is scheduled to be on October 2, 2018, for fifteen authors. A book promotion is scheduled in Fullerton Library later in October. Overall, many members were interested in creating a blog for networking.
