The Book Blog Merges with Peter DeHaan’s Byline to Cover the Art of Writing and the Business of Publishing
All keyposts from The Book Blog have been successfully integrated into my writing blog, Byline.
The scope of Byline has been appropriately expanded to now cover “the art of writing and the business of book publishing.”
New content about writing and publishing is added to Byline each week. Please check out my latest posts. And while you’re there, leave your email address in the sidebar on the right to receive an email each time a new post goes live.
Thank you for reading The Book Blog. I look forward to seeing you at it’s new home.
These represent the highlights of this blog for the year. Beyond this list I have many other highlights as well. I won’t share my personal top 10 list—many of which relate to writing—but I do delight in what has transpired this year. Twelve months ago I would have never guessed what this year would have in store for me. It was a good year. I look forward to next year with much anticipation and a bit of nervous excitement as well.
For you, dear reader, your readership, comments, and encouragement motivate me to keep writing this blog to share my journey and what I’ve learned. Thank you for being part of that.

Veteran Blogger Peter DeHaan’s WordCamp Grand Rapids Presentation Is Now Accessible Online
Peter DeHaan spoke at the recent WordCamp in Grand Rapids Michigan. Peter’s topic, “12 Tips For Better WordPress Content Creation,” is now available for online viewing at WordPress.tv. Other recordings from WordCamp Grand Rapids are also being added.
WordCamps are informal, community-organized events, put on by WordPress users for WordPress users, including everyone from the casual hobbyists to core developers. “This is my second year attending WordCamp Grand Rapids; it’s such a great event,” said Peter DeHaan. “This year, I had the privilege to be able to give back to the local WordPress community. WordCamp Grand Rapids is a well-run event with a great core team of organizers. Everyone there—both speakers and attendees—were so willing to share what they know and to help one another.”
Peter DeHaan has been a magazine publisher and editor for the past fifteen years, a blogger for the past seven, and a published writer for much longer. Peter’s editing, blogging, and writing skills made him an ideal person to talk about blogging on WordPress. “I have multiple blogs and have written over 1,500 posts,” added Peter. “I think I’ve made about every mistake a blogger can make, and I hope I helped other bloggers avoid repeating my missteps.”
Grand Rapids WordCamp is an annual event put on by area WordPress enthusiasts and entrepreneurs, with each year being bigger and better than the year before. For 2014, the event expanded to three days.
