Looking for information for writers that you can use? Here’s what I’ve found valuable this week — you may find a nugget or two here as well.
Great stuff for writers…
The problem with the web is that there’s just so much stuff.
If you’re at all like me, you save articles to read “later.” Then you delete the bookmark or saved page a week or a month later, without having read it — and feel vaguely guilty about that.
So, we’ll have some occasional posts dedicated to useful stuff for writers.
For blogging writers: syndication, and content ideas
You’ve spent a lot of time on that blog post — why not syndicate it? Here’s an excellent article on why syndication can be great for you.
Love this quote from Dharmesh Shah: “My motivation is for the content I’ve created….to reach and help as many as possible, so it doesn’t matter that much to me where people read it.”
Are you running out of ideas for your blog and social media content? Here’s a big collection of useful ideas for content in 2019: a content calendar with ideas to kickstart your thinking. From How to Get a Head Start on Your 2019 Content Strategy With an Editorial Calendar:
I thought I’d put together topics and ideas to put on our collective radar — or get us thinking of others — for each month of the year. Journalists call these “evergreen” stories. They might spark ideas for what you can write about on your blog, LinkedIn, social media accounts and more.
For self-publishing writers: a big list, and Kindle trends
With pay-for-play now the standard for beleaguered authors, Nate’s Big List of Free & Paid Book Promotion Websites is a wonderful resource.
Whatever your budget, you’re sure to find a link or two to promote your published books, as well as help you to prepare for upcoming launches.
Also, watch Alex Newton’s Facebook video on Kindle trends: “we found another three book categories for you that showed an Amazon rank improvement of more than 50% over the last twelve months.”
Watch the video (I’ve got it bookmarked to watch on Sunday) — you may just find a wonderful trending genre which inspires you to write a bestseller in 2019.
For all writers who just need to get stuff done
You may already be using some of the apps mentioned in The 25 Best Productivity Apps in 2018, but with luck, you’ll also find apps which help you to smooth your writing journey in 2019.
