I have completed Blogging 201 and now I’m doing another online workshop called WordPress Blogging 101. It might seem that I’m taking these backward but there was no pre-requisite when I signed up for 201 first. I learned so much in 201 about how to improve my site and attract more readers. I’m building a platform for the book I’m writing called, “Not My Story To Tell”, about my daughter, Justine’s life. She was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder as a teenager and rode a roller coaster life until she was tragically killed in a car accident last year at aged 29. Blogging 101 is also teaching me how to ramp up my site to attract more readers.
We were asked to rename our site and find a snappy tag line. In the Hay House Writer’s workshop (https://cathylynnbrooks.com/2015/07/14/writers-workshop/) I’m taking online, Reid Tracy gave some great advice. The tendency would be to name all media with the name of the book. He warned against this and for a very good reason. He said to name everything your name, as the author. That way as you write more books you already have the platform. If you had to start all over again with each book it would be a tremendous amount of work. So my title is my name and it’s staying Cathy Lynn Brooks. My tag line was “Author” but I’ve changed it to “Author of the book, ‘Not My Story To Tell'”.
This is where I need your help. I realize it’s not very “snappy”. Do you think it’s catchy enough or should I change it to something a little more lively? Any suggestions?
