Description: How often do you start to read a blog and stop because it’s too long or you can't stay focused? Internet reading differs from relaxing in your recliner to enjoy a good novel. Online readers either want a mega dose of information or inspiration in bite-sized morsels. Whether you're a stay-at-home mom, a ministry worker, or a writing professional, the fast-paced, Internet mentality makes writing online tough. It doesn't matter if you write an article or chapter for publication or a blog post, Tiffany talks about how to:
- grab your readers’ attention from the start and keep it until the last sentence
- make every word count
- write for maximum effectiveness to touch your readers' hearts
- connect with others to build community
Tiffany also reveals how your writing/blogging voice inspires your tribe, developing a strong foundation for your writing, speaking, ministry, or marketing platform.
