Awesome Authors: Gina Akao

Gina-Akao-photo1Gina Akao lives in Reno, Nevada. I met Gina through an online Authors Group and we found a delightful number of similar experiences and traits. Gina wrote a book that I loved reading one weekend – I couldn’t put it down. She studied law straight after school and even though her marks were high, she discovered that she hated it. Gina got so anxious about the course that her health started suffering and she had to make a tough decision.

Since then, her life has taken a different turn!

Have you been thinking about creating a blog but don’t know how to get started? Do you already have a blog and are looking for ways to streamline it? Gina has become a WordPress Wizard, and can show you how to set up your WordPress blog in six easy steps. Whether you’re an author, small business owner, or just looking to start a blog, WordPress is a powerful blogging platform that can be very handy if you know how to use it. Gina is the creator of the Found Freedom WordPress Training Series and can walk you through the blogging process every step of the way.

    This was a great interview Gina & Liesel! I do have a question. If you go with the free website as a blog, how do people know there has been an update if there is no signup available through mailchimp, etc.?

        Good question! You set up a follow widget in WordPress.com which emails your followers every time you post to your blog. You can’t segment your list like in MailChimp or Aweber, but it is similar.
