This is my regular installment of “writing about writing,” in which I scan the world to find websites, books and articles to help writers. Today I write about Amy Porterfield.

I try to keep abreast of developments in social media and I have accounts in Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, in addition to this blog. That said, I’m not a “natural” when it comes to technology (my son frequently rolls his eyes at my ineptitude and constantly lectures me about the way I keep “too many programs” running on my computer, which apparently slows it down.)

That’s why I’m always grateful to find bloggers who can offer me clear, useful advice. Amy Porterfield, pictured here, is one of those bloggers. Her topic? Social media. Although she posts as infrequently as only once or twice a month, I invariably find her comments useful, encouraging and labour-saving. Thanks to her, I learned how to post a small ad (for my book 8.5 Steps to Writing Faster, Better) on my Facebook page, at no cost. (Check it out, adjacent to the number of “likes” on the bar underneath my main photo on FaceBook. My FB page is a business page so if you want to see my posts, you don’t have to become my “friend” –just click the “like” button on the page.)

Amy Porterfield: Please post more often! Your last post was April 30. Don’t keep your readers waiting!
