Too much of a good thing (like Daylight Savings Time!) can be as bad as too little. This week’s roundup features seven posts from around the web where more or less is the focus.
Why: Always be on the lookout for how you can attract new readers and visitors. Mike Allton shares how he does this; when it “costs him nothing, he gives up nothing.”
There are a lot of pros and cons about being an independent business owner, but one of the pros is that, if you try to build your business right, you (mostly) get to pick your clients. And that’s really lovely.
Weren’t able to picture it, were you? Ha!
I don’t often write about clients, but today I will. And that’s because it’s such a great blend of profit and purpose, that you should know about it. It’s especially fitting today, as International Women’s Day is tomorrow (and you remember how much fun I had working with Oxfam America on their IWD initiative a few years ago, in fact, you should check out what they’re doing this year too!).
I have long been a proponent of the power of language. From the time I wrote an essay in second grade that blew away half of the elementary school teaching staff, to what felt like thousands of rounds of high school debate, to my current job at the helm of a fast-growing stable of content writers, language has been an intimate part of my existence.
I thrive on it and would perhaps die without it. I feel so strongly about this that I wonder sometimes what I would do if I couldn’t type because I had no fingers or couldn’t speak because… well, the thought is too horrible to entertain.
Writers really can change the world. Their mastery of language puts them at the helm of one of humanity’s most powerful tools. And that position creates tangible results on a nearly daily basis.
