"Thank you Cam, Michael & Brian! Your input and explanations were very helpful. I decided for now to stick with just using categories, and linking to the mystery-specific blog posts from a separate "mystery" page. Once I get to the…"

Michael Allen Williamson replied to Diane Krause's discussion More Than One Blog Page on a WordPress Site in the group My Website Workshop
"Diane, Your content sounds like it's targeted to single audience: writers. Since mystery writers are writers, there's no need for two separate blogs. Just tag and categorize your content accordingly and let the content commingle on your…"

More Than One Blog Page on a WordPress Site

Hi web geniuses, Is it possible to set up more than one blog page on a site? I'm updating/upgrading my website and while the bulk of my content will be targeted to writers of multiple genres (both fiction and nonfiction), I'm thinking of setting up some content on the site that is specifically for mystery writers. This "special" content will include blog posts, notice of events or workshops, resource recommendations just for mystery writers, etc.I know I can create a "mystery" category which…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
As a subscriber to Dan's 48Days newsletter, I received an announcement and invite when 48Days.net was first launched. I've been here ever since.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a freelance editor and also provide a broader range of self-publishing partnership services. In addition to my self-employment, I work part-time as the Project Coordinator for consultant Dan Blank of WeGrowMedia.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To build a business that will allow me to keep working and generating income as my husband and I move toward the retirement chapter of our lives -- but a business that will be flexible enough that we can have fun during this next chapter!
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Write and publish a novel.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'm a planner, a thinker, an idea person and highly conceptual. I lead by example rather than delegate or lead from the front. I tend to be a quick learner and self-starter, and am a loyal team member. I have good administrative and organizational skills and am a good "people person" even though I'm more of an introvert than extrovert. I'm also a pretty decent cook.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
I'm working hard at growing my business. I plan to publish books and resources related to my business, and I'm learning to be better at marketing. I have a list of things to try and/or get better at, and I'm steadily working my way through that list!
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I love helping new authors with the publishing process. Whether it's getting a manuscript cleaned up and ready for publishing, or navigating the publishing path.
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!

Slim Down Your Writing Part 2: Avoiding Expletives

Posted on May 23, 2012 at 7:37am 0 Comments

In an earlier post, Slim Down Your Writing, I discussed three easy ways to slim down and tighten up your writing: use fewer words, use the active voice, and control your use of adjectives and adverbs.

Today's post is Part 2 of slimming down and tightening up, and covers expletives. You're likely familiar with the more common definition of…


Getting to the Core

Posted on February 11, 2011 at 11:34am 0 Comments

A number of years ago, when hubby and I were dating and I was still a poor college student, he valiantly volunteered to make repairs to my car, which had a dead heater core. (If you’ve ever replaced a heater core, you may be chuckling at this point.) It’s a good thing he was smitten with me, because by the time he reached the heater core, his conclusion was that when the car was manufactured, the heater core was mounted into the empty frame, and the rest of the vehicle built around…


Blessed, No Matter What

Posted on January 28, 2011 at 7:21am 1 Comment

Today is my birthday -- not necessarily an exciting event, because I've now reached the ripe old age of 49 -- so, the celebratory aspect of today is not the point of my post here.


My day began about an hour ago, and now that lunches are made, hubby and the teenager are off to work and school, dogs and cats are fed, laundry is going, and the dishwasher is unloaded, I've sat down at my computer to finish my cup of coffee. I opened up my e-mail to find a beautiful assortment of…

Hi Diane,

Pei and I are on-fire excited about the release of my latest book, Finding your Voice and would love to have you join us in the festivities. 

Dan and Joanne Miller were kind enough to let us have the book release party at their place in Franklin.
Ashley and I recently booked the date and I wanted to get the invite out as quickly as possible so you could make plans to attend. Here's the scoop.

Thank you Diane - I hope you have a blessed rest of your week as well - I am looking forward to preparing to celebrate my son Matt's 26th birthday this weekend - he and his fiance will be visiting for the weekend - so that's my main focus this week!

Diane - I had to touch base with you after last night's call - I found it pretty interesting that you mentioned several times that you were not as far along as I am - I saw your post to Rob describing where you are and where you plan to go and I thought - wow she has it so together!  I honestly went into the call feeling a little intimidated by all of you!!  Funny how we perceive ourselves in relation to others isn't it?  I look forward to getting to know you better and definitely learning from you!

Diane, it is so nice to connect with you too!! I look forward to our journey in the Mastermind group...and beyond! Many blessings to you and yours!

Hi Diane, 

Always good to hear from you and thank you for sharing. 

Just curious, what are some of the "should-dos" that keep finding their way back into your thinking and quiet times? 


At 2:20pm on February 24, 2013, Joel Boggess said…

Hi Diane,

Good to hear from you. Thank you for getting back.

So please fill me in. What are you learning or discovering about yourself? 

Erin and I are incredibly excited about the release of Finding your Voice and our publishing arrangement with Sound Wisdom. We are scheduled to release on Nov 5. 

By the way, here is a link to my other Finding your Voice community. For some people it works out better since you're able to post from you phone. It's a Google community which means no long lines, no time-consuming forms to fill out, one click and you are there. Take a peek when you get a chance.

Hi Diane, 

Hope you're having a super day. 

It looks like you've been pretty active in the community. 


Here are some of the authors and experts we've had on our show. Hopefully you can find some more guidance here.
