When I have a moment, I plan to add here (under publishing):

  • Using InDesign for paper publishing–how to make a novel look great on CreateSpace.
  • Moving print content from one platform to another, to keep your formatting when you publish on different platforms.
  • How to manage multiple eBook and paper formats so you don’t have to manage multiple master copies of your novel.
  • How to build a book cover with GIMP.
  • How to build a book cover with Adobe Photoshop.
  • How to do audio proofreading to catch errors you miss everywhere else.
  • Using specific tools to make your writing more productive.
  • A programmer/writer looks at software tools for story creators. What makes things easier, and what is not worth the effort?

All of those are ready to write, so if there is something on that list you’d like to see, let me know, and I’ll push it to the top of the list.

  24. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword.
