This is something I have never done on my podcast—an interview. However, this opportunity was too good to pass up.
Recently, I had the chance to sit down with Gary Vaynerchuk, author of the new bestseller, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook.
This is one one of the best social media books I have read in a long time. In fact, I had a hard time getting through it, because I kept stopping to implement Gary’s step-by-step recommendations.
I am in the process of creating an audio ad for my free screencast, “Launch a Self-Hosted WordPress Blog in 20 Minutes or Less.” I plan to run this in my podcast and possibly some radio ads.
I want to include some short audio testimonies from real users in the ad itself.
If you used my screencast to setup your own WordPress blog, I want to hear from you. This is a chance for you to promote your blog to my audience.
Several months ago, I hosted a teleseminar with Jeff Goins. If you don’t know, Jeff is a full-time author, blogger, and speaker. I wanted to re-post it here as a way of introducing you to his Tribe Writers course (more about that in a minute).
We had some technical challenges in the call when we were both suddenly dropped by Skype—twice!—but we kept forging ahead. Regardless, Jeff shared some powerful content for anyone who is serious about building an online platform.

I want to make my blog better and more relevant to your needs and interests. To do that, I need to know more about YOU. As a result, I have created my 2013 Reader Survey.
Would you please take a few minutes to fill out the survey? By doing so, you will ultimately be helping yourself. Why? Because you will be helping me make my content even more interesting and relevant to you.
Twitter is a great tool for extending your influence. You can engage your “tribe” in real time, offering leadership and assistance in a way that would have been impossible just a few years ago.
However, Twitter is not without its challenges. I have made just about every mistake you can make. But assuming you want to grow your influence and increase your follower count (and I realize not everyone does), here are eight mistakes to avoid:
When I started blogging, using my platform to make money was the furthest thing from my mind. Back then, I just wanted to share my ideas and connect with others.
Now that I’ve build an entire business around my platform, that may be hard to believe. But, I just didn’t know what was possible, and I definitely didn’t know how to get started.
