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!

Pick a Pencil

You know that book you want to write? It's inside you. I promise.
It already exists - you just have to start!

Those words will become sentences. Those sentences will become paragraphs. Then chapters.
One hundred words a day? It's a book in a year.

You are the best person to write that book. (You totally are.) Pick a pencil. Open a document. Start!

Why not? What if?

Everything is possible!

Facebook Day

Like! The feel-good click :)
I did it! I started a Facebook page for my book!

For some reason Facebook freaks me out. I guess it's one thing to have people "follow" you (yay!) but the "Like" button definitely feels a lot more personal!

Do you have a Facebook page? Personal? Business?
Are you scared no one will Like you? Does it matter?

I'm still figuring my way through Facebook's settings and options. How do you use Facebook? Is it part of your platform? Any tips / tricks to share?

Keep kicking ass!
