4 Writing Sites I Didn’t Know About And Am Glad I Found

Do you keep lists of websites stashed in miscellaneous files? I’ve been keeping a list here in draft posts. Here are some of them

Guerrilla Freelancing – mostly marketing tips I wouldn’t have thought of, and maybe you wouldn’t have either. But it’s not stricktly marketing. Consider Digital Detox: Do you really need social media to succeed as a freelancer? Tempting.

The Urban Muse – okay, I knew about this one but had totally forgotten it – I’ve been rediscovering it. You may want to too.

Websites For Writers brings wonderful surprises like today’s link to the 25 most beautiful libraries in the world at Flavorwire.

Help! ! I Need A Publisher! How could I resist a writing site that says, and I quote,

Nicola Morgan, the Crabbit Old Bat, is an award-winning author of around 90 books across many genres. She gives crabbitly honest advice to determined writers, here and in her books, WRITE TO BE PUBLISHED, WRITE A GREAT SYNOPSIS, and TWEET RIGHT – the Sensible Person’s Guide to Twitter.

Have you got a writing site or know of one we should know about here? Or other site that informs writers?

Susan’s site is great (Urban Muse).

I’m a fan of Peter Bowerman’s Well-Fed Writer. (http://www.wellfedwriter.com/blog/)

And All Freelance Writing is just fantastic.

Yes, thanks for asking,

I do have a Writing Site that’s mainly about Blogging and The Writer’s Lifestyle. For example recently I wrote a posts about using a Blog as a – Platform – to work from, and about Writing Book Reviews.

It’s more about Blogging (and doing Affiliate Marketing) than about actual – ‘Trading Hours for Dollars’ – type Freelance Writing, although you can also find posts about things like writing ‘Letter’s to the Editor’ and writing Filler (Articles) for Magazines and things like that.

So my site – amung other things – informs Writer’s how they can
(pre) Sell (other people’s) Products on their own Blogs
with doing Affiliate Marketing

I love Guerilla Freelancing! It was the first blog I guest posted for.

The Urban Muse is great too. One of the first blogs I started reading when I started freelancing.

Going to check out the other two!
