Five from the WritingThoughts Archives


Sometimes it’s nice to sit back and share past material with the readers. This is one of those times.

I like to share past posts for a couple of reasons. First of all, readers may have missed the posts the first time around. Secondly, a second reading often brings a fresh perspective.

Today, I thought I’d share some of my favorite WritingThoughts posts from 2011. I think you’ll agree, there’s some really useful stuff here.

Here are some great posts that you may have missed from our archives:

  1. Can Social Media Participation Replace Your Blog?–More and more bloggers are moving their voice to social media and abandoning their own blogs. Is this a good thing? What do you think?
  2. Six Freelance Writing Myths Debunked–There’s a lot of misinformation about freelance writing. Here are six popular misconceptions.
  3. What Is the Difference Between An Article and a Blog Post?–Despite what many believe, Articles and blog posts are not the same thing.
  4. Should You Write Your Own Copy?–DIY isn’t always a good thing and it doesn’t always save money.
  5. The Freelance Writers Code of Ethics–Good ethics is vital to successful freelancing. Here are some ethical concerns of particular interest to freelance writers.

Do you have any specific writing-related topics you would like to see me cover in 2012? Share your feedback in the comments.
