Welcome

Hey Campaigners!

Rachael Harrie's platform building campaign is on again, you can find all the details here.

I’m Jolene :) I live in New Zealand, and I’m the author of Total Blueprint for World Domination.

To my regulars:
Thank you so much for your comments and messages.You make me feel like a rockstar blogger instead of a stumbling newbie!

To new followers:
If I’m not following you back yet, send me a message or leave a comment so I can :) 
I can’t wait to check out your blog!

My first nonfiction is a life planning book for teens – creating a step-by-step blueprint to achieve a dream world! I’m currently working on two new books, and exploring the blogosphere!

See you soon!
Jolene :)

PS If you’d like to review my YA nonfiction on your blog, get in touch!

Everything is possible!

  26. First I LOVE your blog design. Stopping by from the campaign! Trying to get a head start on meeting everyone. I liked your facebook page I would follow but don't see a follow button. Is there a way to follow or just subscribe? You would think I would have figured this out by now hahaha Nice meeting you and look forward to your posts!
