I’m also pointing you to posts by Jeff Bullas and Michael Wade.

Posts by Others about Writing

From Jeff Bullas: The Marketing Strategy for Bloggers with No Money

“When I started as a blogger I had no spare cash to buy advertising or even for investing in a professional web design for my blog. In fact the credit card company had my number on speed dial! All I had was passion, a hunger for learning and a domain name. The cost $10…. that was it! Oh yes..I also had time. I was unemployed but my laptop hadn’t been repossessed.”

Wally’s Comment: You may not imagine your blog as a revenue source, but you sure want it to succeed. Jeff Bullas introduces you to the concept of “earned media” and offers some specific tactics to help you build recognition and traffic.

From Michael Wade: Surrounded

“Do we surround a subject or does it surround us?”

Wally’s Comment: Here’s a wonderful description of what it feels like when you’re working on a project.
