If so, share your thoughts in the comments of this post. I have a plan for tasks to complete for the rest of the month, but I could combine, delete, and/or add different tasks depending on your feedback. Or I may just write up some extra blog posts to accommodate specific areas of interest. And again, thank you.
|Look at that great article on writing.|
For today's task, find a helpful article (or blog post) and share it with your social network--and by social network, I mean that you should share it on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn at a minimum. If you participate on message boards or on other social networks, share in those places as well.
Before linking to an article on fantasy baseball or celebrity news, however, make sure your article (or blog post) aligns with your author platform goals. You should have an idea of who you are and who you want to be as a writer, and your helpful article (or blog post) should line up with those values.
Need ideas for finding articles?
Here are a few lists that I use to find articles of interest for writers:
For Twitter, you may wish to use a URL shortener.
Here are five popular URL shorteners:
- http://bit.ly/. This is my favorite.
- http://goo.gl/. Google's URL shortener.
- http://owl.ly/. Hootsuite's URL shortener.
- http://deck.ly/. TweetDeck's URL shortener.
- http://su.pr/. StumbleUpon's URL shortener.
