Blog Writing Guide

Over at copyblogger Dean Rieck has written an excellent article called: The Ultimate Blogger Writing Guide

I don’t know that I have a favorite; I try to consistently use all eight.

I do, however, love this statement: When writing fails, it’s probably because you don’t have something to say…

Two newsletters:
Abundant Freelance Writing – a resource for freelance writers including 3x a week job postings.
