New Section on Writer's Helper Web Site

I've finally put a section on Writer's Helper Web site about writing for the Web. I think this is the next venue for self-publishing. If this is an area that interests you, check it out here.


Writing About Writing A Web Page Contest

In keeping with my current enthusiasm for Web sites, I'm holding a writing contest about writing Web site copy. You can link to the latest writing contest from here.


Buy-One-Get-One-Free Web Site Promotion

As promised, here are the details of the Buy-One-Get-One-Free Web site special I'll be offering during the course, Writers and the Web that I'll be teaching for the Sunshine Coast School of Writing on April 23.

It's no secret that I think the Web needs writers and writers need Web sites.

The fact that you are reading this is a testimony to my own success on the Web -- After all, you did find me and sign up for this newsletter, didn't you. Although I worked hard on my site, I didn't create it alone. I'm thrilled to share with you the company I believe offers the best set of tools for a small business Web site.

Once a year, I'm allowed to hold a Buy-One-Get-One-Free Web site special for ten days so others can have an even better deal when starting out with a Web business. SPECIAL NOTE: This promotion is valid only for people I send their way. You will not see any reference to it on the corporate Web site. No one else is offering this right now. The only way to take advantage of this remarkable deal is to follow the instructions exactly.

Here are the instructions:

  1. You must buy one site during the promotion April 24-May 3,2005.
  2. You must send me the following information (asap):
    • The fact that you bought during the promotion
    • Your first name and last name
    • Your e-mail address or the order number (it will be in your "Get Ready" e-mail)
    • date of purchase
  3. If the free site is not for the purchaser, include full contact information of the person who is receiving it. (Once I have collected all the information from all who take advantage of the offer, I'll send it into SiteSelll and they will release the second site.)
  4. The second site must be registered within 6 months or it becomes inactive. (That's plenty of time to get a site up and running, but SiteSell needs some control over these sites they are holding on their books.)
Remember that you will not see this mentioned anywhere on the SiteSell site. This is truly a unique offer. Everyone else is paying full price. (Of course the full price is still a great deal, but you can't beat Buy-One-Get-One-Free.)

Although I'm offering this with writers in mind, feel free to share the second site with anyone who wants to build a business on-line. Just be sure to buy between April 24 and May 3, 2005 and follow the rules.

Advertising For A DJ Maratho

I've never done this before, but when I learned about what Darren Hartland planned to do, I decided to pass it on. Darren is a blind DJ in England who wants to raise money to send seriously ill kids on the trip of a lifetime. I learned about Darren on-line. When he asked a group of us if we could help him get his message out, I decided to pass this information on to you. Please feel free to pass it on to others.

Darren's project is an example of how a Web site promotes something world wide. After all, "Advertising is what you do when you canít go see somebody. Thatís all it is."

If this newsletter has been helpful to you, please pass it on to a friend. And if you are a friend who recieved this as a gift, you can subscribe for yourself at .
