As writers, Bryan Pedas and Brandon Meyers understand that any author—aspiring or published—needs to promote themselves, and they firmly believe that blogging and getting involved in the blogging community is one of the best tools an author can use for self-promotion. Over the course of the past two years, they have learned a great deal about the ins and outs of the process and would like to share the tips that have helped them find success in the blogosphere. Specific topics that will be covered are:
• Why it’s important to blog
• Where to blog (for computer gurus and those who struggle with computers, alike)
• How to find your niche
• How to consistently come up with topics to blog about
• How to reach out to other bloggers inside and outside of your blogging community
• Blogger etiquette
• The general dos and don’ts of blogging
Brandon and Bryan are a pair of fraternal, mostly unrelated twins. Bryan is from just outside of Denver, Colorado and has never left because of a fear of the unknown. And Brandon was once from Denver, Colorado but moved to Chicago, Illinois to pursue his lifelong dream of dodging urban gunfire.
Both brothers are writers, and between the two they've completed 46 short stories (40 from Brandon, 1 from Bryan, 5 collaborative) and seven novels, a good half of which are readable. They co-author the moderately popular blog/web-comic A Beer for the Shower. When they aren't penning collaborative novels together, you can find them throttling their livers at the local bar, posting politically incorrect web-comics, or indulging in one of life's greatest victories: a beer in the shower (separately, we assure you--get your mind out of the gutter).
