Three Best Articles for Writers and Bloggers Today

As a writer, I read constantly, even more than I write. Since my education was not about writing specifically, I have to educate myself additional subjects that will make me a better writer and marketing director of my books. In the last four years I have read and written about how to use social media, how to create blog posts that people want to read, how to write dialogue, how to write first paragraphs, and anything other how to post that captures my interest and need. I’m sure you are doing the same. Then I have to keep track of all that stuff. That’s how I use my blog.

Today I read three wonderful article published Jane Friedman on her website. I want to refer back to these again, so I’m writing about it here. The website where I found it came from a Writer’s digest email advertising creating websites. Friedman’s website gets 100,000 hits a month.

    • Someone who doesn’t teach full time! 🙂 I go maybe two or three time usually, but only once or twice a week or so spend time checking groups and posting in all the different places that I don’t post automatically. I don’t do as much when I am writing.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

Refugees welcome - Flüchtlinge willkommen I am teaching German to refugees. Ich unterrichte geflüchtete Menschen in der deutschen Sprache. I am writing this blog in English and German because my friends speak English and German. Ich schreibe auf Deutsch und Englisch, weil meine Freunde Deutsch und Englisch sprechen.
