A Press Release lets the world know what is new with you. Are you launching a new book, published a new article, been interviewed on a radio or TV show? You need to tell the world what you are up to so you can gain the visibility the resources will offer. Writing a Press Release is fairly easy. You need to follow the general Who, What, When, Where and How, but other than that, the dynamics are very straight forward. This is a copy of a Press Release for Create Your Own Reality, my 6th book There are several sources online where you can submit your Press Release for free or nearly free. One source is PRWeb which is what I have used for most of the time once I started releasing my books.

Recently I found PressRelease through someone who left a comment on my blog. I haven’t used it yet but I will definitely give them a try.

When you use press releases consistently you will gain more visibility, attain new clients and you never know where it might lead.

I’m sure you’ve seen the Microsoft Explorer logo. When it shows up on your browser to the left of the website name, it’s called a favicon (favorite icon).

You can add your own favicon to your blog or website very easily even if you have limited knowledge on how to work with websites or blogs.

All you need to to do is go to this website

Simply upload your picture, logo or icon and follow these directions. Then click the Generate Favicon.ico button.

Save the file to your desktop. Open your Notepad and then open the index.html file from your website. Search for the “” code and then load the code within brackets. Upload the the file to your website and after a few days (sometimes as much as a month), your very own favicon will appear on your website rather than the Explorer logo. It’s just one more way to personalize your image on your website and blog.

Now you can add a Gravitar (for your dedicated webmail service such as gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. You can even load your very own picture to the mail service.
