Going Beyond Blogging

If you are looking to assess the skills you’ve acquired by blogging over the last year or more, then Deb Ng’s e-book might have the inspiration and ideas you need to change from being just a blogger to becoming a published author, community manager or more.

Blogging teaches a variety of talents that can be used outside of just blogging, and Deb lives that every day as the Community Manager for BlogTalkRadio.
