Nicole Dean’s Rock Star Blog Summer Tour

My blog will be on vacation this summer, but I won't.

Oh no, I'll be a blogging MACHINE – on other people's blogs. I'm taking inspiration from American Idol and every other band on the planet and am having a Rock Star Summer Tour, only mine will be from blog to blog.

Do I look ANYTHING like a Rock Star? Maybe Elton John…

First of all, I'd like to say how honored I am that the following blog owners invited me to come and blog to their readers in the first place. You'll see I have a nice wide variety of blogs listed below and may even be talked into doing one next year if there is enough of an interest.

So, for the next few months, I'll be like Waldo and you can find me in the following places…

  • Shel Horowitz - Ethical Marketing Expert

    Hi, Nicole–saw your note in the Internet Marketing digest. If you’d be interested in adding Principled Profit: The Good Business Blog to your blog tour, I’m sure we can work out a topic. I won’t be able to offer you any eagle poop ๐Ÿ™‚ (I remember your comment at the Willie Crawford conference). Send me a private e-mail or Tweet me w/ topic idea.

  • things to do in summer

    Brilliant idea, as a blogger who used to tour with a rock band I might have to pinch the idea and do it in the UK – if you don’t mind, that is!
