My LiveJournal friend, Susan Taylor Brown is conducting an online class in social networking. When you click on the link above, scroll down to her write-up of a class she co-taught on this subject at a recent writer conference in California. (The feedback is impressive!)

ONLINE SOCIAL NETWORKING FOR THE BUSY WRITER How to Blog, Tweet, and Friend (and Still Have Time to Write)
- Need help navigating all the online promotion possibilities on the web?
- Want to increase your web presence but unsure what to do next?
- Reluctant to add one more item to your to-do list?
- Do you have the Twitter Jitters?

Then this 4-day ONLINE introductory class to Social Media is for you. This class is conducted entirely online.We'll cover an overview of many of the current online social media platforms such as Blogs, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Amazon Connect, JacketFlap, Linkedin (and more) and how authors are using them. You’ll learn why “friend” has become a verb, how to “tweet” for research experts, and what you can do about managing your time with all this new online activity. You will set up new social media platforms and learn how to enrich the ones you do have.

Susan is the author of Hugging the Rock, a book I loved! (Read my review of her book here.)

Oh, and one more thing. If you're not a writer but you're interested in the class - it never hurts to ask!


  1. I just may do this. Sad. I work for a company that does this very thing for its clients and I can't seem to get anyone to help me.

  2. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
