My Interview on Tell Me A Story With @YouAreTheExpert

Sometime ago I asked author and radio host Annette Rochelle Aben of The Magic Happens Magazine for an interview. Let me clarify that statement, I asked her if I could interview her for LitWorldInteviews. With how busy everything gets and how I never set deadlines for a person to return answers the interview hasn’t been published yet.

Now skip to about a month ago. I contact her about what kind of authors she liked to interview for her blogtalk radio program. My goal was to begin setting up a way to connect the authors I interview with Annette and create a richer overall experience for the author and combine my interview followed by Annette’s interview to perhaps create some buzz. So mine would create a chirp, hers would create the actual buzz. She’s that dynamic a personality. And it’s not just on radio.

The message I received back was basically “I’m booking February now, when can you be on?” Of course I had no thought of my being on her program. Next thing I know I’m on the phone with her and explaining what my purpose was in contacting her and she was fine with that but still wanted to interview me.

Then on Friday, February 6th I was interviewed live. Just so you know, the questions were not known before hand and I do believe you will be able to tell there was not a script. I even turned the tables on Annette and became the interviewer for a moment. Imagine that.

I took the opportunities I could to mention the names of some of my Blog World and friends where it was appropriate and not forced.

I was able to mention the Book Cover services of Chris Graham of The Story Reading Ape’s Blog and he does Book Trailers as well, Author Jo Robinson and her great LitWorldInterviews Features on Self-Publishing, Author and Proofreader/Editor Wendy Janes and how I would purchase her services if I ever had the money and the book to spend it on, and Author PS Bartlett and our co-authoring a book that will be part of her The Blue Diamond pirate world.

I only had 30 minutes so I did what I could. I do hope you listen to the show. Here is the link for you to go to at your leisure and it is also in the left-hand sidebar.

Text to Speech: Editing Through Listening by @PSBartlett

Text to Speech isn’t just for authors of novels. Use it for your blog as well.

From nothing to a Blog Post. It happens.

I’ll be honest with you, I have no idea what I am going to write. I opened up this page with the thought of just letting words happen. The idea of writing about How I DIDN’T Watch Football on New Year’s Day came to mind. Then I thought, why? I asked myself that as I leaned back against the headboard of my bed, leg stretched out crossed at the ankles and my laptop, well, on my lap top. Not that I’ve ever heard of a lap bottom. Why would I write about no football?

I thought about writing a poem, but it felt forced. So that was a no.

I thought about a writing or blogging tip, no.

I thought about promoting a book I like a lot by a friend of many of us, no. But that being said seriously go and purchase The Blue Diamond: The Razor’s Edge by PS Bartlett. It really is excellent and no, I do not say that as a friend. My honesty comes before friendship, otherwise my recommendations mean nothing. And she has other books in the series she is working on so there are more to come.

I did create a logo for the Lit World Interviews site. I am sharing that because I enjoyed doing it and I do think it looks pretty good.

Okay so there, picmonkey.com. I was a fan of fotoflexer.com for a while. I still like some of their features. But picmonkey has become my current go to. I create all my own images of late, if at all possible. That way I don’t have to worry about credits and the like. My images, my credit, or no credit really.

I originally was against picmonkey because of the way you had to navigate, but as I mentioned in a previous article it was just a matter of getting accustomed to things. And it was very easy to grow accustomed.

There are some limitations in some font choices I would like but the ones they have are very cool and varied and you can load your own fonts. The borders are nice and the effects and textures are excellent. If you are creative you can do a lot with them.

From creating a banner, a simple blog insert or even a book cover picmonkey.com is a great place to get the hang of. And it is really simple once you just start clicking and playing around with it. I use it every day.

Oh, and when you save it, make sure to put dashes between words like this – and ronovan-writes-blogging-tipsnot like this _ because _ is ignored in searches so words run together. While this – is seen as a space.

And that’s how I created a post for today. I wrote until something of interest to me came up and I thought would be of use to you. Normally I get rid of the not possibly interesting parts but decided to leave them in today just to show you how random I am.

3 Things To Announce for My Site.

Things to Announce

ron_ballgame_blackandwhite

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This won’t take long.

First of all I am hoping that we will soon have:

Sian Pfudor, our resident Prompt Girl, Young Lady,

actually here as a member of my site. She will hopefully share her Haiku and other things as well without having to go through me first. And yes, there really is a 10 year old girl named Sian that gives me some words to use. You may ask yourself why I am doing this. Well, one thing I enjoy more than anything else is when others are encouraged to do something with their talent. This young lady has talent and who knows what she might do by just by being involved here and getting wonderful encouragement from all of you. And no, she does not look like a unicorn, but she does like purple.

 

Next I wanted to mention the new Rating I added to my articles.

Those are the little stars you see. I am not saying you need to rate my work, but I wanted to point out the change as you should do whenever you make a change on your site. I think I might regret it, but I would like to know if either my tips are helpful or if my poems are enjoyable and this is a way of letting me know without commenting for those who don’t comment and I can’t see who rates  what. (I am still a little apprehensive about it.)

 

That being said you will notice a new page for my new site at the top ‘Lit World Interviews Site!’.

That is letting you see what my other site is about and letting you know it exists in case you miss this or any other posts I mention it in.

 

That’s about it for today. I told you it wouldn’t take long.

 

Much Respect

Ronovan
