Writers hear it all the time: if you want to reach new readers, you must have a strong online author platform. Publicists and successful writers agree that a blog is an essential element of any writer's social media presence. But in a world of competing outlets, this is easier said than done. How do you start a blog or even set one up? How do you attract followers? What should you even write about, anyway? Rebecca Emrich's blog, Living a Life of Writing, has been live for seven years. Through trial and error, she's learned how to produce compelling content, gaining a strong community of regular followers and contributors that include fellow successful blogger and coauthor, Paul Nieder. A Writer's Guide to Creative Blogging provides a slew of practical and easy-to-understand tips, from a glossary of basic terms to promotional advice, for those interested in making their blogging debut. If you love to write but aren't sure how to share your words with the world, this is the book with which to start. Your readers, and your Klout score, will thank you for it!
Luke Weil gives readers an up-close look at the strategies he has used to generate such immense success as a blogger. After starting off with just a small blog and no clear monetization strategy, Weil's blog became such a sensation that he was able to make a career out of the platform he created merely as a hobby. Even though his initial success came almost entirely by accident, Weil has since created a host of other wildly successful blogs while consulting countless others on how to generate significant streams of revenue through blogging.
Travel often inspires the creation of narratives about journeys and destinations, more so with the increasing availability of online platforms, applications for smartphones and tablets, and various other social media technologies. This book examines travel blogs and their associated social media as a form of self-presentation that negotiates the tensions between discourses of travel and tourism. As such, it addresses how contemporary travellers use online platforms to communicate their experiences of journeys and destinations, and how the traveller/tourist dichotomy finds expression in these narratives. Addressing the need for more in-depth analysis through a study of blogs, this exploration of networked narratives of an individual's travel experience considers personal motivations, self-promotion, and self-presentation as key factors in the creation of both personal and commercial travel blogs. As this text applies concepts such as self-presentation and heteroglossia, it will be of interest to both students and scholars of tourism, new media, sociology, cultural studies, and discourse studies.
Sharkovsky's Theorem, Li and Yorke's "period three implies chaos" result, and the (3x+1) conjecture are beautiful and deep results that demonstrate the rich periodic character of first-order, nonlinear difference equations. To date, however, we still know surprisingly little about higher-order nonlinear difference equations.
