twitter_logo_headerTweet A Book! Do you have a kid who loves to tell stories? Try Tweeting a book! Using TweetBookz! Learn how at http://piggybackbooks

This is perfect for the child who says I hate writing and doesn’t even like to draw or for a teen.

1. Decide what you will write about. If you are going to give this as a gift. You could tell a special story about the person you are givign the book to. Is it a story about a family trip or memory. Is it completely original? Or will you retell a classic in your own words. Like the 3 Bears or Rudolf?

2. You will need to set up 3 free accounts:

  • Twitter Account for this story or your child’s name – because the title of the book will be one of three choices My Tweet Book @twittername – or @ twittername My Tweets
  • TweetCall free to sign up. Has to match twitter account. Then tweet away your story. Tweet call transcribes it on to twitter. Once your story is done in 144 character  bits – up to 200 tweets you are ready to get it published on:
  • Tweet Bookz you will have 4 cover choices to choose from. The back cover is kind of an  about the author  page with information from your profile. So make sure you customize that.Once you are ready to publish you can go through and take tweets out that you don’t want.

As I am writing this I am seeing how great this would be to do on the way home from school each day – a journal of your child’s life. Or each day you could ask questions of your child about different topics and capture their answers. Or describing a pet., favorite place, special event.

The possiblitilies are endless

Tweet Away!

December is a time of celebration, of love, of light. Often our thoughts go to what gift giving. I believe especially this year when many of us have had to cut back on our  spending that it gives us an opportunity to truly give a gift from the heart. A gift that will inspire.

I am so happy to be a part of Aspire Magazine’s Mission to Inspire because it gives me the opportunity to touch the lives of 100,000 women. If you haven’t yet claimed your free subscription to their e-zine which is full of articles to inspire by today’s thought leaders and conscious business owners.

By subscribing yourself and sharing this with others, you can give from the heart a gift of inspiration. Not only will you get the free subscription you will have access to over 50 other free gifts from the Team Inspiration partners. Click here to be inspired!

As a team inspiration partner, I have received the gift of learning how to add plugins to my website, like sg-tweet and aweber integretion . By the way you can get a free trial to A-Weber for just $1. I also learned how to actually publish an e-book and be able to house it where people can read  and download it. That is at YouPublish . To get your copy of Writing the PiggyBack Way, please subscribe to my new  list (in the sidebar) and you will get the private link to the book. It is chockful of simple ideas to make writing FUN and EASY for any child. A gift that will inspire the writer in any child. A perfect gift for friends who are parents and teachers. Please share the link to my website so they can get their copy.

In closing,  a gift from the heart can be as simple as a hand-written note to a freind, a book of stapled together printer page with pictures drawn by your child. Take the time to look to your heart and give a gift that inspires.

Happy Holidays!
