First Friday Link Party for Writers 2014Welcome to 2014 — and a great way to share your best posts and get new readers in the new year.

The First Friday link party for writers is back from a brief hiatus. I’ll be turning my blog over to you — the Make a Living Writing community of readers — once a quarter. You can link us to your best recent post, and then check out the rest of the blogs your fellow readers have shared. You never know when you’ll find a new favorite.

    Aloha Carol,

    I’m new to this, but I am excited about the things that I have learned by reading your insights on blogging. I’ve tried this once before back in 2004, but just didn’t know enough to keep going. Thank you so much for your wonderful knowledge and your willingness to share it with idiots like me.

    thank you once again, wholeheartedly, for sharing your talents and success with us.
