Awesome Author Blog — The Bloggess

I  have been following The Bloggess on Twitter for a long time.  I have not yet read her book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir), but I have it on my Audible list — yes, she even has an audio version! — and I am hoping to read it before the end of the year.  When I do, I will post the review on my book review blog: Read & Tell Reviews.

As I was thinking about authors with blogs that I can share as good examples, The Bloggess came to mind.  A quick glance at her blog reminded me why I love her.  Let me count the ways:

1) First of all, her blog “pops.”  It’s bright, it’s easy to maneuver and it’s FULL of her…personality.

2) The headline reads “The Bloggess — Like Mother Teresa, Only Better”  next to a photo of Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess herself, in hair rollers holding a blow dryer.  How can you not laugh at that?

3) On the left side she has quick, easy links to her blog RSS feed, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Flickr, so readers can check her out and follower her wherever they prefer.

4) Below those quick links is an image of her book with a link to get more information about it.

Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, is a perfect example on how to use social media to connect with your audience.
