WEEKEND ROUNDUP: 4th of July, 2016

by Dr Margaret Aranda


"You Should Write a Book!"  Have you 'Googled' yourself lately? Do it soon, as you're about to grow! Note #of impressions, #of images, and #of pages you occupy. Then you see what you need for content! Let's watch us all grow! For example and inspiration, I have "About 423,000 results (0.60 seconds);" and occupy about 10 pages. (Hey, for the last ten years, I've been bed-ridden from two Traumatic Brain Injuries, don't be jealous. None of us would have chosen this life.) 

But I twisted my 'negatives' and forced them into 'positives.' If I can do it, you can do it! If you're out of your socket just reading this, and ready to pop your own balloon and give up on writing, it's only because all the information here is time-tested and worn. This probably represents 3 years of current knowledge on internet marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to get it 'up' on Google, and more. So come back and read it again in a month. I bet that even seasoned authors may learn one pearl of wisdom here ... and isn't that a great thing? So be patient with yourself, and come back to this often. It's the tip of the iceberg, my friends...all for you to go from creativity to marketing to creativity again....the Circle of an Author!

If you have a book(s), I'll start doing Author Interviews on my blog for each person, to promote you now on my Author blog;

  • _____
  • _____
  • _____
  • _____
  • _____
  • _____

  • Authors wanting, wishing! grateful! to be Interviewed (you'll just fill in a Form ~ that's it! BAM!  The Interviewer posts it as a blog!). You don't Interview an Author without reading her/his book. So if you can't buy it online, I think we would all just send you an e-book right away; some Authors may want a Confidentiality Form signed so you don't share):

  • (If there are 6 of us, that’s 5 Google hits we each get. Give & Receive. Backlinks, side-ways links.BAM! )


  • Authors willing to embed "MY FAV AUTHOR LINKS" (as an example) on their website: 
  • Put your name on this List: @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, _________, __________, __________, __________, __________.)
  • BAM!  Each author then gets 'backlinks' from another author's or author-to-be's website/blog. More Goggle SEO.

E. "ALMOST AUTHORS:” One day, your time ToBE Interviewedwill come!

  • Get all your social media links set up to list for us, too: Here's mine, just FYI.

Twitter: (follow me at @MediBasket for starters; go to cogwheel & organize followers into Lists like 'My Favs') 

Pinterest: (Join if you haven't already; if you see my Board(s) you like, ping me and we can "co-own it" BAM! )

Facebook: (I'd recommend a Public Page if you can; it can link to your website and/or your "store")

Google+: (this is the "Mama" of them all; from here, we can do too much to mention lol)

LinkedIn: (need I say a word?)

Author Blog/Website:(consider each blog as a potential 'Chapter' in your book & watch audience analytics) DO NOT 'copy & paste' articles from one website to another - Google will give you a "negative ding." Reword it, esp. the 1st PP. 

Goodreads: (promote us Authors when/where you can, please. Start making your own "Quotes" for the record)

Amazon: (promote us Authors when/where you can, please. Even 'clicking on it once 'moves it up' on Google)

Other Book Purchase Site: (e.g., Publisher site, etc.)

Other: prn. (- "prn' = Latin for 'as needed.' I'm teaching you doctor abbreviations while we're at it.  So, do it prn, like taking morphine "prn" for pain lol, as if.) 

  • If you’re writing about Cooking, start gathering friends/Contacts who are Cooks (**and follow their followers with the most followers!**).


 Thank you all. Bear with me as I'm doing my best. I'll make mistakes along the way, but always believe the best in this Bee.         I have had two Traumatic Brain Injuries and forget things here & there, and for this I apologize. Be patient with me.

   I'm doing my best & stretching my limits. How could we ever Accomplish without Perseverance? It is our Bzz! language!

                  Thank you in advance, for your unhesitating willingness to be loving & accepting to all! 

And, no stress. If all/any of this is overwhelming to you, take baby steps. Just do what you can, no worries at all. 

The structure is only there as a frame. You provide the image, the emotion, and the sentiment in your own time.
Dr Margaret Aranda

And every time you conjure a "quote," write it on a separate document. You can import them all into Goodreads.  



Example of how you can "sign" documents/signatures/articles/blogs to increase Search Engine Optimization (SEO):
