Here are my posts about writing this week, along with some posts about writing from others. This week I published posts on the time between drafts, writing a book, word choice and writing advice from John Steinbeck. I also pointed readers to posts on SlideShare and blogging.

Other Posts on Writing that I Like

From Dave Paradi: SlideShare Best Practices: How to Turn Written Content Into a Winning Deck

“SlideShare was the ‘quiet giant of content marketing’ way back in 2011, even before being acquired by LinkedIn. Now? It’s one of the most influential social media platforms for businesses and big thinkers.”

Wally’s Comment: Dave is a PowerPoint expert. You may want to check out his blog, “Think Outside the Slide.”

From Ryan Estis: Is Blogging Worth It?

“I’m speaking to several hundred small business owners tonight in Cleveland. When I talk to entrepreneurs about my business and how I’ve used content marketing as a core sales strategy, one of the questions I always get is: ‘Is blogging worth it?’ Or, this version: ‘We had a blog for a couple of months. It didn’t seem to resonate with anyone, and we didn’t see any sales, so we stopped.'”
