Huffington Post Foot-In-The-Door Tip

Just popping in to give you a peek at one of the tips coming in my next newsletters--because it's so important. (-: 

Tip: People have been asking me for details about how to pitch the Huffington Post for a blog and I didn't know the answer. Now my husband who is a newbie to book promotion (author of What Foreigners Need to Know About America From A To Z does the research and--can you believe?—sends me this:
To pitch an idea for a blog post to the HuffPost Blog Team please enter your name, a brief bio, your email address and your pitch.
The pitch can be a short idea, or the full text of your submission.
An editor will contact you should we decide to publish your blog post.

I suspect this is also a great first-step way to get a blog of your own with the Huff.
If you would like to subscribe before the next edition of SharingwithWriters comes out, send me an e-mail with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line.  I'm happy to do it for you. (-:
