Everyone wants to publish their book. People often view an author as the quintessential expert on a particular subject. It doesn’t matter what that subject is. And having a published book can give that you.
In today’s episode, I want to walk you through my journey of using Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing, KDP as it were. I want to give you several reasons why I believe it is still the very best way to publish your book today. So, if you’ve been wanting to publish your book, now is your chance.

We all need to find the perfect solution for all our paper and writing needs. Well, look no further than one of the best programs I’ve found, Evernote. This program has helped me go nearly paperless at home and at the office.
As a writer, I am looking for ways to write faster, and more efficiently. But the problem most encounter, they can’t access their work anywhere else than their computer. Enter Evernote.
I believe God has given you something special to share with the world. That something is your words. It doesn’t matter if you’re a blogger, author or freelance writer, your words can change someone’s life.
In today’s episode, we’ll discuss how we can change the world of one person by the words we write. Also, I have some fun changes coming to the blog and we’ll dive back into the ABC’s of blogging glossary with the letter D.

When I began this adventure of blogging back in 2009, I had no idea where I wanted to go with it. I knew it would be fun, but I didn’t realize I could change people’s lives through my writing.
Last year, someone came up to me and told me they found something I had written. Now, this wasn’t something on my blog, but something I had given them in one of the bible studies I had led. Tears in her eyes, she said, “Jason, you have no idea what you wrote meant to me. I was having a rough day, and your words were just what I needed.”
Having a website is a wonderful thing, but the problem a lot of first-time guests have, they don’t enjoy the experience. In today’s episode, I tackle this idea that guests come first and that we should be giving them a quality user experience.
When we take the time to care how a guest feels on our website, we’ll make fast friends and they’ll want to come around again and again. I’ve seen so many websites where I simply click away because of a bad about page or lack of a contact page. If we want to take things to the next level, we must put that user experience first.

I am looking for your help. I know self-publishing is a large world, I’m wanting to know what you’re struggling with. I want to know your questions. I want to help you navigate this confusing world and help you get on the road to publishing your book.
This is why I’ve created a short survey for you to take. Let me know what you want, and I’ll work hard at delivering the content you need to get you on your way to publishing your book, the Publish Thy Self Way.
You may submit as many times as you want, and you can choose more than one answer. You can select a pre-written answer and type your own.
I can’t wait to hear your response so that I can begin crafting the answers you need to publish your book.
Also, feel free to use the comments to add any other thoughts or questions you may have regarding self-publishing.
As a blogger, I love when I get to look back at what I’ve accomplished in a given year. This past year, I’ve written nearly 120 blog posts. That’s a lot of writing. In fact, it’s so much that I could have written a 75,000-word book. That’s the size of a regular 350-page novel. WOW!
Now that 2016 has come and gone and 2017 is fresh and new, I wanted to take a look back at some of the best blog posts/podcasts episodes I’ve written/recorded last year.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I pray you are enjoying a wonderful and fun Christmas holiday with your loved ones and are looking forward to a brand New Year. As I did last year, I am going to take this week off between Christmas and New Years. I will resume blogging on Monday, January 2, 2017
It’s soon to be Christmas Morning! The gifts are ready to be opened. The turkey is thawing. Despite all of the festivities, don’t forget the reason we celebrate this season.
As you’re getting ready for company and singing your favorite Christmas songs, let’s not forget we celebrate because of Jesus Christ and him crucified. He came to earth over 2,000 years ago to give us life. Like we set out milk and cookies for Santa Clause, we need to prepare for Jesus’ arrival in our hearts and minds.
