Working as an online community manager for small businesses and with brands such as GMC and Disneyland, Becca Ludlum has grown her platform through hard work, dedication, and following the Golden Rule. Her lifestyle blog, My Crazy Good Life, is where you can find tips about mobile technology, blogging, and social media as well as parenting tweens and teens.
Becca also contributes to iPhone Life magazine and iPhoneLife.com as a tech writer, which satisfies her geek side.
Becca has been blogging since 2009 and now mentors beginning bloggers in her spare time. She lives in the Arizona desert with her husband and two boys, and can’t imagine life getting any better. Everything But the Posts is Becca’s first published book.
Endorsed by New York Times Bestselling Author Jon Acuff and Top Blogger Kim Demmon of Today’s Creative Blog, Everything But the Posts is a resource for new and veteran bloggers alike.
Every day new blogs are started. People sign up for accounts, they begin posting their ideas and stories, and then… well, they get stuck. They need more readers and better ways to share content. They need to find a network of other bloggers they can bounce ideas off of.
Based on her years of experience as a mentor to new bloggers, Becca Ludlum looks over your shoulder and answers the questions you haven’t asked yet. She gives you tips about setting up your blog, connecting with others in the blogging community, and making a few dollars in the process–Becca’s giving you everything but the posts. By the end of the book, you’ll be ready to use the templates she provides to pitch brands for reviews or conference sponsorships and even create your own media kit to present with your pitch.
