Thanks to you guys and gals I have won a prize !
Just before Christmas I was reading one of my favourite "bloggists" (if that's not a word then it should be....:0) Bamidele Onilbalusi. the founder of the "Writers in Charge" blog.
As the name suggests, this blog is dedicated to aspiring authors and bloggers etc.
Bamidele had just turned 22 and, as a thank you to his readers, was offering free access to his products to the 22 folks who could show the most effective use of the advice that he has provided on his blog.
Now it just so happened that I had written my own short piece a little while before which pointed to an article on Bamidele's site about building a freelance writer's web-site.
And, to cut a long story short, I replied to Bamidele telling him how much I enjoyed reading his blog (which is true) and how I had shared one of his articles with the folks at WA.
And I am happy to say that I was one of the 22 folks selected for Bamidele's prize...and I am now reading my way through the e-books that I received.
My main reason for writing this blog now is not just to say "Whoopee !!". although I will admit that there is an element of that involved :0)
What I wanted to say is that - if we put outselves "out there" and let folks know we exist...things can truly happen for us all....and often in unexpected ways.....
Before I sign off I would like to send out a special "Thank you" to all the folks who supported and liked my blog "Do you want to create a freelance writer's web-site?"
I would hasten to add that I am not an affiliate of Bamidele's site....I just shared the article because I think it has a lot of valuable advice for aspiring writers....
Happy New Year everyone !!!
All the best to you all....Kevin
