How One Writer Got a Handle on Technology

On the Make a Living Writing blog today, I’m telling the sad tale of how technology makes me cry, and how I learned the many programs writers need to know to function online today.

One lifesaver has been my membership in A-List Blogger Club, and the tech advice I get in their forums and in the course materials.

Also, I discovered prices are going up for A-List membership, so I’m doing a special offer for anyone who subscribes to A-List through me this week, before the price rise — get a free copy of my one-hour teleclass with Stanford Smith of Pushing Social — The Top 10 Reasons Your Blog Isn’t Making Money.
