In all of my blogging setbacks, I have been forgetting to express my pride, joy and sincere amazement regarding my involvement in the e-book Conversation Age. This e-book is a project conceived by two astounding bloggers, both of whom I have immense respect for- seriously: Drew McLellan and Gavin Heaton. Anyway, here's the gist of the project: you get 100 bloggers to write 100 chapters on the topic of conversation in the new digital/ modern word. Each blogger writes a one page (400 word) chapter and then the book is offered for sale online. Judging by the long list of writers (some of the very brightest minds in marketing/ blogging), it is going to be a stellar book... even with my contribution. Here's the kicker- the book is dedicated to the memory of Sandra Kerley, mother of our dear friend Christina Kerley (better known by all as CK) and the proceeds go to Variety The Children's Charity. This is such an amazing project- it combines the gracious act of remembering a wonderful woman and supporting our friend with a beautiful charity... and you get a great book written by some of the best experts on marketing/ blogging (and also me). It's a project that I am more than just a little proud to be a part of and more than just a little flattered to have been asked to take part in.
Anyway, keep your eyes open for more information about the book and where you can go to purchase it- I will post updates as soon as the project is completed. But for now, just check out the author list:
Roger von Oech
Tony D. Clark
Kimberly Dawn Wells
John La Grou
Dr. Graham Hill
Also, while I am here and talking about giving and sharing; please, if you can, help us continue to honor Sandra Kerley by donating to Habitat for Humanity in her name. Please follow this link to a donation site (I'm not smart enough to figure out how to have the great icon and link that all the other smart bloggers involved with this have created). This is a great way to continue the great legacy of a wonderful woman, as well as show support to our dear friend CK.
I am really looking forward to seeing this book and I hope you are too.
