Blogging on 10LRs

Each author is encouraged to write original blog posts for our site … ideally once a week or more. Consistent blogging is one of the best ways to help drive traffic, newsletter signups and book sales. Posts should, naturally, be related in some way to the topic of your book; do not include links to other businesses, platforms, blogs or email signup forms you may own. (We will include an approved author bio in each post)

Each author has been sent a username and log-in to the site (it’s the same username and login you used to log on here and view this page). Please add a new post, save as DRAFT, then click the box that says “Pending Review.” We will edit and post, then share it on our 10LRs main page. You are welcome to share it anywhere else you like, other pages you own, your own personal profile, groups you belong to, etc.

It doesn’t matter what day of the week you add posts; and you are welcome to add several at a time. .

Blog images

You are welcome to use the template in Canva to create blog post images; there is one template for each book with all branding, colors and formatting. Email Carol for a link to the template if you don’t have it. Or, create your own images with a photo, a quote, etc. (Ideal size is 1200 x 630 pixels; horizontal only.) Lately we are getting more engagement from quotes and images, rather than the template. So feel free to mix it up. Please add somewhere in the image

Examples below …

all images should be horizontal rather than vertical. For best fit use 1200 x 630 pixels. If you go higher than 630 in height, keep in mind the top and bottom will be cut off on our blog home page.
