#Book Review – #Better Blogging with Photography by Terri Webster Schrandt

I am very humbled and happy to share Author Tina Frisco’s post of her book review of my eBook, Better Blogging with Photography.

I love the fact that other bloggers share and promote each others’ works by buying, reading, reviewing and sharing. Without “blogging” I would never have considered writing and self-publishing my own book. Watch for my book reviews later this week.
