Gotta blog? I hope you said YES. :-)
Blogs are vital to your writing success in 2008 and beyond, for many reasons.
One of the primary reasons is to help you to make a name for yourself.
Yesterday I published the article "Sell your Writing: Get the Writing Gigs You Want" on Writing Hacker, my new site. This article is for writers trapped in freelance writing ghettos. Blog(s) will help you if you're trapped in a ghetto; not only does your blog help you to stand out from the writing crowd, it also helps you to explore new avenues for your writing, AND set higher fees for your writing.
There are many other ways you can use blogs to build your writing career. I explore some of them in Fab Freelance Writing Ezine on Wednesday. This week our feature article is: "Blogging for Beginners – Set up a Blogging Empire" - subscribe now, and you'll receive the issue in your Inbox.
The article will show you the many different types of blogs you could write, and the many different ways you can use blogs to enhance your writing career. The article will help you to look at blogging in a completely new way.
