My Writing Week – March 25, 2011

This has been a varied writing week for me. I finally completed that technical article I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. That meant doing two telephone interviews to give it some zip – and they were fun to do. Since I already knew all the technical info, I was able to concentrate on getting their feelings about the product.

I wrote a press release for another client who said “You knocked this one out of the park!”

I also continued blogging for the Taking Off Travel Blog, where we’re now publishing more newsy posts. The more feature like posts will now be appearing as guest posts on other travel sites – watch this space for updates in the next couple of weeks.

Speaking of guest posting, I had my first try at posting via MyBlogGuest this week – and got instant take up of my first post, which will be appearing in the next week or so.

Finally, I did a couple of resumes and a few bits of other writing – a good week all round.

Recent web appearances include:

  • Web Content Writers, Where Art Thou? How to Find a Writer on the Quips and Tips for Writers site
  • A mini interview on For This Lifetime
  • A listing on Nick Daws’ list of Top Ten Twitter Follows for Writers – this was last month, but it took a while to show up in my alerts
  • Get Paid to Write Online was included on My Alternative Career’s list of helpful websites for new writers – thanks, Victoria! šŸ™‚

  1. Sharon,

    I can’t believe how varied and interesting your writing life is! I imagine you’re never bored šŸ™‚

    Thanks again for writing for Quips and Tips — and for keeping those ideas coming. One of the hardest parts of pitching ideas is coming up with fresh new angles…and I think that’s why many writers give up. It’s HARD to hear “no thank you” a gazillion times in a row. But, the mark of a truly successful writer is persevering despite the pain of rejection.

    Tally ho, my friend!


    • You’re right, Laurie. Perseverance is a key part of a successful writing career, and an article idea that’s not right for one site might be perfect for another.

      And no, I’m never bored. šŸ™‚

  2. Glad to feature Get Paid to Write Online on the list-it has been a helpful resource for me over the last few months. Seems like you had a very busy week- I’m hoping that you’ll share some of your time management tips with us -I’m always interested in learning how writers balance a busy work schedule with their personal lives.
