When Julie Burton went viral: Part One
Listen below to Part ONE of my interview with Julie Burton.
The voice in her head is a funny one.
Julie Burton is a mother and a writer who uses her sense of humor to relate to others about daily life. As a mother of two girls she’ll flat out tell you her job is raising strong, proud daughters. She always puts them first but that doesn’t mean she takes things too seriously!
Today on Getting Social, I visit with Julie Burton.
She is a published author, mother of girls, self-proclaimed ‘bacon-hater and all around funny gal.
We’ll discuss how she became a published author on Amazon back to the day she went viral. And how she handled the pressure of CNN & the rest of the world calling to interview her kindergartener.
She’s just released her third book, the Jen Mann NYT Best-Selling anthology series titled, “Will Work for Apples.”
You can laugh with Julie every month by reading her column in SimplyKC Magazine and for instant gratification, you can find her everyday on social media @ksujulie
Let’s listen in as we have a conversation about what it’s like to go viral, how to handle haters and how we can all relate to the inner struggles of balancing art, life and parenting in this digital age.
Julie Burton is a small town Kansas girl who obtained her Bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University with her focus on Journalism. She is a content writer for Filter Free Parents, and always named “funniest parents” on the lists compiled by Huffington Post, The Today Show, and Buzzfeed, to name a few.
How can you support artists like Julie?
Pick up Her Book
If you’re looking for a great gift for a teacher you’ll want to snag her latest book, “Will Work for Apples.” This anthology series by Jen Mann is compiled of heartwarming stories about teachers who made a real difference in the lives of the authors. They’re $18 but if you’re a teacher, Julie will give you a discount!
Follow along and engage with artists online
The easiest way to support creative professionals like Julie is to follow along on social media and engage when you see something you like. It’s fulfilling knowing you’ve inspired someone with your words or made someone laugh at your joke.
I fail a lot.
I throw pitches all the time to magazines or book anthologies, story ideas to big publishing websites.
I get rejection letters a lot.
Writing will give you a backbone real quick! I know I can write -but it stings a little every time someone doesn’t like what I wrote and tells me: fix it.Julie Burton
