"Websites, Blogs, and Platform Building" by Olgy GaryThe past few months have been busy ones. I attended two excellent writers conferences, the Pikes Peak Writers Conference and the RMC-SCBWI Spring Workshop where I taught a session on, "Websites, Blogs, and Platform Building." The teaching was well received and I've been asked by our regional coordinator to schedule another session sometime this year.
