Balancing Brand Building with Submitting to Publications P

Like many writers who started off writing their own blog, I have been slowly navigating the online world, and trying to figure out my place in it. In 2014, after blogging consistently for nearly a year, I had some success with a blog post that went viral – 5000 views in a day, which was a lot relative to my small blog! I was so excited and started thinking about how I could expand the post into a book format, since it seemed that there was a lot of interest my topic. I started with an outline and quickly had … Read More

To The Blogger Who Wants To Get Published By Another Site But Doesn't Know Where To Start P

  The good news is that you can get published. Really! When I first started submitting my writing, it was slow going because I felt like there wasn’t really a resource or a how-to manual. And I’m the type of person who likes to read the instructions twice and then re-read them. I struggled with questions like: Where should I submit my writing? Am I good enough for another site to publish my writing? Should I just keep all my good content for my personal blog? I wasn’t sure that submitting my writing was a smart move, but my personal blog only … Read More

Yes, You Can Launch a Successful Writing Career From Your Blog

  The first time I shared with a friend that I planned to create a blog, I was met with a patronizing grimace, which was then followed by a smirk which then conveyed the ultimate message: Disregard.

While there are an abundance of fantastic, informative sites which showcase brilliant writing, many are sloppy and filled with poorly remixed and uncredible information. Let’s just be honest. But, … Read More

I can only write about my personal experience and what I have gleaned from reading about the experiences of others, so your results may vary. Second, in 2015, HuffPo changed its contributor platform. I’m on the new platform, but I’ve tried to educate myself about the legacy/old platform. There are some important differences between the new platform and the legacy platform.  I’ll explain those … Read More
