I went to the site Blogs by Heather to prepare for writing this post, well, 20 minutes later, I’m back to start writing. Heather obviously knows about blogs and how to engage readers! Blogs by Heather is a one-stop shop for all things related to blogs. There are fantastic posts with advice on how to create, design, and maintain a successful blog, as well as many free tutorials on blogging. But I’m getting ahead myself again, here’s more about Heather.

About Heather:
“I have Master’s Degree in Computer Information Systems and started my computer consulting business in 1995 (Premier Computer Solutions LLC). I have trained clients on Microsoft Office, as well as Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark and other graphic design applications, in addition to developing databases (using Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle), programming in Visual Basic, and creating websites (using ColdFusion, HTML, and JavaScript).”
Heather started out working a “day job” and developing her blog business in the evenings. As of Jan, 2011, she has resigned her job and dedicated herself to her blog and newsletter business, Blogs by Heather, full time.

Blogs by Heather is offering three different prizes during Build A Beautiful Blog Week and there are three different posts on which you can enter:

1. Creative Blogging (featured on this post, see below for details)

2. Beginning Google Blogger (Starts May 30th)

3. A Complete Blog Makeover (Click here to enter)

Enter here to win the book, Creative Blogging from Blogs by Heather. In short, it is “all about blogging” and covers topics from starting a new blog, thinking of a name, brainstorming about what to write about, and good writing tips. Following that: blog layout and organization; working with images and video (getting them from your camera/video recorder to your computer and to your blog); creating a blog; changing its design; setting up a custom domain; creating a blog store with PayPal buttons; and socializing with Facebook and Twitter. Also included is how to drive traffic to your blog, and where to find additional help. This prize is loaded and has instruction for Windows and Mac, for Blogger, TypePad, and WordPress users.

    I need help knowing how to organize with tags, categories, and even scheduling posts. I was plugging along ok until I start accumulating posts! Now I feel like I’m working in a scrap heap! Thanks for the opportunity!
