- There was a time when you needed a printing press to get your message out to a mass audience. Today just about anyone can publish their thoughts and ideas and share them with the world. All it takes is a blog. But having your own platform, even having an audience, is not the same thing as having something valuable to say. I'm Starshine Roshell, a blogger and writing coach.

Writing a compelling blog post can be trickier than it looks. But with a few simple lessons, we can turn your knowledge and passion into a regular writing practice that not only develops your voice but really builds your brand. So are you ready?
