    Start-Up Guide for Online Writers is a treasure trove for anyone getting started on their writing journey or have been around for quite some time and finding it hard to keep pace and feel that all the information out there is simply overwhelming. I wish I had access to a one-stop shop like this one when I started. Right from the basics of setting up a website and social media accounts to writing guest posts and hosting podcasts, Kate walks you through all the necessary steps to build, establish, grow and thrive in your online writing venture. Beginner or Advanced, you can definitely find takeaways at the end of every session and challenges that you can undertake to grow your blog and online presence as a writer. I enjoyed discovering my options and learned a lot from this book which I’m positive will help me grow and build my online writing.

    A comprehensive crash course in how to get started blogging and gaining traction immediately. Writing for a personal blog or online publications looks fun, but actually doing it? It can be super challengng to know how to set up a blog, develop community, manage your time, and make time for learning. Kate has included skads of resources for technical assistance, continuing education, and article submissions. I especially love the assignments and questions for both beginners and advanced writers. Any level of Christian writer will find wise advice and encouragement in this resource. I’ll keep this in my arsenal!

    I love how easy this book is to navigate. It’s not boggled down with too much technical language. From beginner to novice, Motaung’s book is easily understood and a quick and easy reference. I really enjoyed this guide. It was a great refresher for me. Although I’ve been blogging for a couple of years. this book is tailored for me too. I found a lot of the information valuable. I also downloaded Scrivener because of this guide. It is the best app I’ve downloaded in years to help keep my writing organized. I love how the assignments are tailored for beginners and advanced writers. It is a wealth of information and I can’t recommend it enough for Christian writers at all stages in their career. You won’t be disappointed.

    A reference I will be going back to periodically, Kate’s to-the-point guide is shaved down to the bone. This is what you need to get going and you won’t be intimidated when your eyes meet the page. I have been blogging for a handful of years and wish I had this at my own beginning. Too many times advice is overstuffed and overwhelms an already overwhelmed writer. I am grateful for Kate. Her love of people and her gifts/talents are woven together.
