Updated: Oct 8
This post is a follow-up to my September 30, 2021, blog post with information from Jane Friedman and Deborah Kalb that included blogging basics and some examples.
More detailed information about blogging is available in a free online course offered by the marketing folks at Reedsy with lots of hyperlinks to external resources. It has 10 daily lessons by professional blogger Jessica Festa, and the last two lessons focus on how to sell books from a blog. Here are the titles of the 10 lessons:
