Jennifer Newcomb Marine will facilitate the meeting on the topic of “Set-up your Blog!”

Don’t miss out on this event. It’s for anyone who has considered or wanted to Blog. This is one of the best tools for marketing your literary skills. Don’t wait until you are published. Begin to create some buzz now.

Here’s a brief snapshot about Jen:

Jen is the co-author of "No Ones's Bitch: A Ten-Step Plan for Mothers and Stepmothers" (GPP Life, 2009), which was co-written with Carol Marine, the
stepmom to her children (and her ex-husband's wife) and the co-author of
"Skirts at War: Beyond Divorced Mom/Stepmom Conflict" with Jenna
Korf. She represents the divorced mom voice on the NOTB blog, writes for The
Huffington Post and is also a public speaker.

Jen’s been featured on The Dr. Phil Show, The Washington Post, Canada's Globe and Mail, Publisher's Weekly, Library Journal, The Huffington Post, Psychology Today and numerous radio shows and interviews. She's the mother of two daughters and is the honorary aunt to her children's stepbrother. She's also an avid traveler, rock climber and rower.

Her latest novel "Skirts At War: Beyon Divorced Mom/Stepmom Conflict" is co-written with  Jenna Korf.

Many divorced moms and stepmoms feel doomed to a lifetime of power struggles when the other household is indifferent or openly hostile. Skirts at War is a reassuring and playful hands-on guide to thriving as a stepparent, remarried mom or single parent, even if the other side won't meet you halfway. Learn how to master the most common challenges vexing divorce-connected families today:
Instincts - why they're working against you and what to do instead
Support - how to sidestep well-meaning, but sabotaging advice and tune into truth-telling wisdom
Men - how fathers see our interconnected roles, in the words of a man in the middle himself
Expectations - why your "reasonable" assumptions set you up for disappointment and resentment
Self-Worth - why old issues from your past are easily triggered and how to desensitize them
Boundaries - how to transfer responsibilities to the right shoulders and stop overdoing

Divided into three user-friendly sections for quick reference: Problems, Power Tools and Making Progress, it also includes:
* over 100 comments from community members, eager to share their hard-won insights
* 20 interactive quizzes, assessments and how-tos
* 60 journal questions designed to easily move you forward
* over 100 affirming mantras to ground and center you
* a chapter by Mario Korf written directly to divorced fathers
* how to join our online community for free PDFs and exclusive material, connect with new friends reading the book and create your own private blog or journal

    Thanks so much Jen.
    It was a wonderful presentation on a very technical topic.
    But you were able to dummy it up enough for us :-)
    I took a stab a WordPress on my phone… yah, it’s a learning curve.
    Thank you for opening our eyes to the world of blogging.

      Awesome, Ruth. I'd be curious to hear about your time in Japan, since I used to live in Manila. :-)

    I'm so glad y'all enjoyed it and were inspired. And yes, hovering and staring at all the features inside your dashboard is where it's at! I'll be there next Tuesday for a follow-up and questions and in the meantime, feel free to send me an email if you're stumped. Cheers!

      This particular session was packed with general and individual information.
      I believe that we will try to put together a follow-up meeting on the topic.

    Greetings! I am still sick, and I have a doctor's appointment at 940am on Tuesday the 19th. If I'm well, I'll come, but if I'm not, have a good time without me.

  • Bryan H.

    For those of you who wish to come on Tuesday the 12th, I am very sick. But please get together without me and have a yabba-dabba-doo time!
