Today I thought I’d share with you some of the places I haunt for keeping my blogs ‘well-oiled’, topical and in working order. These are websites that, in my opinion, have some of the best blogging resources and social media ideas. Here in random order are 5 of the best blogging resources, in their own words.
5 Of The Best Blogging Resources
Writer’s Digest is the one-stop shop for information, resources and writing community. Writers can connect with other writers on our forum, visit our blogs and sign up for a free weekly e-newsletter. They’ll also find weekly writing prompts, contests and competitions, conference listings, and online exclusive articles.
Since January 2006, Brian Clark’s Copyblogger has been teaching people how to create killer online content. Valuable information that attracts attention, drives traffic, and builds your business. Today, Copyblogger brings you 5-6 articles a week about what’s working right now in online content marketing. And we’re not too humble to say it’s the most popular content marketing and writing blog on the planet.
What can you expect?
It’s not (just) about SEO.
It’s not (just) about social media.
It’s not (just) about blogging or email marketing or conversion.
