    Apologies for the delay in this episode of the All Indie Writers Podcast. I ran into some recording difficulties last week.

    For most of this year I've stuck with a five-posts-per-week schedule here on the All Indie Writers blog.

I've decided that it's time to change […]

    Earlier this year, Lori Widmer stopped by the All Indie Writers Podcast to guest co-host an episode on everyday marketing for freelance writers. Our chat ran long, so some segments had to be cut. That included a ten-minute segment about writing for content mills. We also touched on a simple tactic for finding better gigs and leaving mills behind -- […]

    In this week's podcast I expand upon the topic of blog revenue, which I covered in a January episode. While I touch on a variety of business model options for bloggers, the episode pays particular attention to turning your blog into a direct business model in its own right through ad-supported content and premium features. Then, I tackle a community […]
