On Podcasting

Have you heard the news? I recently added Podcasting to my experience by joining the show r(E)vo Convo, part of the Tiny r(E)volution website.

It is exciting to me to be able to expand my freelance career by doing something similar and yet different.

As of right now I am responsible for two segments - a book review and a tiny living or space saving tip. I have to research and write these segments prior to the show.

There are some interesting things about this process. Writing and radio (or podcasting) are two different beasts. When I have "script" in front of me I find that I only use it for reference, I'm not reading word for word what it says. I suppose that is good because that is what makes it sound like I'm human and not a robot.

You can hear new episodes of r(E)vo Convo at the Tiny r(E)volution site each Thursday. Check us out at the website today! 


  1. Congrats on the podcast stuff. It's a great thing to add to your repertoire. Go you! :)

What Am I Reading on Facebook?

Facebook gets a lot of bad press these days. Many people have threatened to jump ship but the alternatives haven't proven to be sustainable. Facebook is a machine, for better or for worse, and many of us still use it to not only connect with our friends and family but also for our businesses.

I manage 16 different pages for clients or projects. It was 15 until a couple of months ago when I finally decided to bite the bullet and create a professional page for my writing work. Why did it take me so long? I really have no idea but now that I have created it my job is to keep it updated and grow my audience.

I have noticed that Facebook is becoming inundated with types of content pages. Sometimes it can be hard to keep track of them all. For instance, my business page has almost the same name as my personal Facebook timeline. Laura LaVoie and Laura M. LaVoie aren't that much different when you see it quickly scroll past, but for me that M is the distinguishing mark between persona…

Creative Content: What Should You Focus on for Your Website?

There is a lot of information about what businesses should or should not include on their websites. Having a blog is encouraged, but how do you optimize it? Keywords and tags are important, but not if they're part of an incoherent word salad.

As a writer, my goal is to create content for your business that is readable, educational, entertaining, and fits your overall personality and style. 

My earliest lesson with this was for one of my first clients after I started writing full time. I was asked to write a variety of small "vignette" type pages for a wrought iron company. I had to write a lot of them, using specific keywords. I knew if I just wrote the same basic stuff over and over again, it wouldn't attract readers back to their site. And it probably wouldn't convert them to customers.

So, I got creative. But not too creative. I got just creative enough. Here are some examples where the requirement was to work in certain keywords.
