    Hi Jane,
    Great content. As a new writer I find that the way you consolidate and distribute valuable and topical information through different channels is excellent. It’s my one stop shop.

    I do have a question and wasn’t sure where to post it so here it is.

    When preparing to send out information on twitter, facebook or blog, how do you arrange and organize the content that you are looking to distribute?

    I have launched my facebook, twitter and blog accounts prior to my soft eBook launch and am constantly maintaining a list in a word doc of the things I will say in the future. I am starting to find this challenging as different channels require different content.

    Is there a preferred method to organize the madness? Especially in amongst travel and events?
