Hey! I made another vlog! It's a little on the long side (7 minutes!) because I ramble sometimes (though I cut a lot of the rambling out). And even though I'm wearing makeup this time it apparently wasn't enough because man those dark circles are kicking. But I think there's some good advice in there (and I added some amusing comments for those of you nice enough to actually watch the video and not surf the Internet while just listening...but frankly if you do either I think it's sweet.) Plus you get to see some of my wardrobe! So that's awesome. Anyway, here it is! (Links below are either mentioned in the video or just good general advice).
Links mentioned in the vlog:
My post on the importance of having a pitch, which includes links to other great posts (written by agents, authors, etc.)
Inexpensive business cards: www.vistaprint.com (May I suggest springing for the premium designs, otherwise you get a very non-professional logo on the back of your cards. If you sign up for their emails they will send you coupons often, including ones for free premium cards.)

Rachelle Gardner asks if you should even go to a writer's conference
Hey! WriteOnCon is FREE! And online so you can do it in your PJs and don't need business cards or need to travel :)
And since I forgot to ask in the vlog, feel free to share your tips and tricks in the comments!
