As I’ve been working away on Tales of Larrick City (now up to 7500 words) I’ve again been taking a look at a lot of Blog’s out there. Here are 4 posts in particular that I found very interesting.
First up, a post up by Toddi Gutner on the Entrepreneur site. This post is all about your LinkedIn profile and gave me a lot to think about regards my own presence on the network. It has a lot of hints and tips about improving how you as individual can present yourself on the network, although it is primarily aimed at company profiles.
Second, another ‘how to’ post, on, well, how to Blog! It lays out in concise and practical terms just how to Blog properly and I’m already reading through it and thinking ‘yeah, I missed that step’. Very useful for putting you on the straight and narrow and making yours updates not only more relevant to what you do, but also more interesting in general. I hope to implement the suggestions in future posts.
Next, a more writing centred post by Diane Mae Robinson on the Imogen Knight Blog. It’s about how to write a good children’s story. Although only aspects of the post were relevant to what I’m doing (my stories are primarily directed toward teenager / adult level) it’s very well laid out and provides excellent advise. Well worth the read for any writer of fiction.
Finally, if you’ve had enough of ‘advise’ post’s, here’s a fantastically funny post by the legendary Conan O’Brien, who has recently become an influencer on LinkedIn. Yes, I’m scared too!
