5 Top Blog Posts of the Week for Writers...

Today I’m starting a new weekly post called ‘5 Top Blog Posts of the Week for Writers’. Every Thursday, I will list what I consider the five best posts for writers that I have found on my travels around the blogosphere.

Here’s this weeks:

1. How to Build Buzz Around Yourself

This is a great article about networking and how to make yourself buzz-worthy. There’s a lot of points here that will work for new writers.

2. Making Time for Travel

Tips on how to make travel-time in your life.

Apparently a large percentage of Americans do not take vacations for a variety of reasons. They worry about losing their job, losing their edge, or they don‘t get paid vacation time. This shrinking vacation syndrome is so bad that according to a New York Times article (August 10.,2006) ‘…at least one major American company, the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, has taken to shutting down its entire national operation twice a year to ensure that people stop working — for about 10 days over Christmas, and 5 days or so around the Fourth of July.’

This sounds like an article idea in the making…

3. Keep your e-query letters out the trash folder

Some great tips on sending email query letters.

4. How to find news for your blog

This post by guest blogger Tony Hung (Tony’s covering Problogger while Darren takes a vacaction) provides ways in which you can find ‘all the news that fit to print.’

And talking about news, what’s with Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell? Everytime I turn on CNN or Fox news, there they are. How can this be real news? If you ask me, its all about publicity…

5. Inkthinker 2007 Query Challenge

It speaks for itself. Check it out and take the challenge…

Thanks Yvonne. I was trying to figure out a way of storing the information for myself for future reference. This seemed like a logical place to put it. Plus I like to share. Liz
