I have found the neatest place to not only place your articles, post your press releases, and make blog posts; but also is the home of Blog Your Novel Month (or BlogYoNoMo), for those who are interested in blogging their book in a month.

The website is owned by Dino Manrique, and he has done a terrific job of setting this up (his astounding website hits are proof!).

In doing research for my book "A Complete Guide to Promoting & Selling Your Self-Published eBook," I was looking for ways to promote eBooks to add to my book, and what a gold mine I found in WriteLit. I was not only able to post an article, a press release AND blog about my book, but the information there is just downright wonderful.

They kicked off BlogYoNoMo yesterday, but if you'd like to get in on it, here are the rules:

1. The event will start on October 1, 12 AM(MN) US New York/Eastern time, that would be October 1, 12 PM(NN) in the Philippines, and will end on October 31, 12 AM(MN) US New York/Eastern, or October 31, 12 PM(NN) in the Philippines. (Check the World Time Server's time converter for your respective local times.)

2. You may blog your novel here at WriteLit.com, or on your own blog, be it a free blog or a blog set up on a paid host. You may or may not enable posting of comments. It's all up to you depending on whether you feel comfortable others saying something about your work while you are writing it. For this purpose, I’m creating a new content type here at WriteLit.com called blogyonomo-no-comment and blogyonomo-with-comment. You may also choose your default blog, of course, with its default “comments enabled” setting.

3. Before the start of the event, you will announce at WriteLit.com the URL or web address of where you are going to blog your BlogYoNoMo novel, e.g. mynovel.blogspot.com or mysite.com/myblog/mynovel, etc. If you are going to use the blogyonomo content types, just indicate your account page, e.g. writelit.com/user/myusername.

4. You may write in any language: English, Tagalog, Spanish, Tagalog, Arabic, Chinese, Cebuano, Bikol, etc.

5. At the end of the event, on October 31, you will post the URL or web address of your final blog entry at WriteLit.com. You have the option of not publishing the last chapter or final two chapters of your novel, so as not to spoil it for your readers when your great novel finally sees print, especially if you are employing a surprise ending.

6. You will display your work for at least a month. After that, you may or may not delete your "blogged novel."

I won't be participating as it's a busy month for me with the release of my promotion eBook, plus the release of my paranormal I co-authored titled "The Search for the Million Dollar Ghost" (hint...check out the ghostie website...if you dare), but it sure does sound like fun.

If you have any articles or press releases you'd like to send out, WriteLit is a really good place to do that. You can check them out at www.writelit.com.
