Blog Radio: a great way to share your voice

This evening  I spent some time with JBlair Brown, an online talk radio hostess who kindly allowed me to come on her show and talk about freelance writing. I’ve always known that blogging and radio were somehow connected, and now I am seeing new possibilities for entrepreneurs who have–as they say–the gift of gab. BlogTalkRadio […]

Tech help that gets me
