Every writer today needs an effective website as part of a complete marketing plan.

Take charge of your online presence and create an effective website this year.  Anyone can do it, but is it a good idea to start a blog, or to create profiles on the various social networking sites?  I discuss this and more in article covering my experience in niche writing: Managing Your Online Presence - How I Ended Up Being Featured on USA Today.

I had a great time at the 2010 Tallahassee Writers' Association's conference.  Thanks to Donna and the committees for putting on a great event with wide range of speakers and workshops.  I'm always amazed that so many writers don't have websites or ones that are ill-conceived.  It's time to really take charge of your online presence with a good (It doesn't have to be great.) website that reflects your personality, your books and is attractive to your audience--those who would be interested in your books.  You also must be able to edit it with a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor that doesn't overwhelm you.

I also talked about my book, "Sustainable Gardening for Florida" at the book festival at Saturday.  Both Barnes & Noble and University Press of Florida, which had sales tables there, sold out of my book. This book deal was initiated because of my online presence.  Learn to manage yours.

Great ideas for writers' websites

Here's an idea: AP has a new style guide out and one of the more interesting changes has to do with their rules for referring online resources.  Now the rule is that it's website not Web site, but it's Web page because the Web refers to the World Wide Web.  Interesting!  Here's the link to their frequently asked questions Web page: http://www.apstylebook.com/?do=ask_faq.
