Problogger readers, you’re a special group. Thanks for stopping by.
When a blog is growing by leaps and bounds like this one is, it’s sometimes tough to know where to start.
My very first recommendation is to subscribe to my newsletter, More Words That Begin With You so you can receive future posts by e-mail along with a host of other great stuff. Or via RSS (up above on the right.) That way you’ll never miss another post, and you’ll start getting a good feel for the blog’s rhythm.
But, there’s something else you should know about me and my blog too.
I’m a Uber-generalist. Basically, that means I have a number of different passions and talents I’ve melded into one driving force that I like to call my “Holistic Approach to Building my Personal Empire.” You can read my Uber-generalist Manifesto here to get a better idea of what I mean.
In short, this blog is about writing, because writing is my passion.
But it’s much more than that. As I discuss in more detail on my About page, I am working hard to support my family doing what I love. To that end, I’ve developed a broad-ranging skill set that includes copywriting, ghostwriting, speechwriting, public speaking, fiction, poetry and songwriting. And I’ve built my business, as I’ve built my life, on an over-arching set of guiding beliefs I call Timeless Principles.
So all of these areas are fodder for the blog.
If your interests are more focused than mine, and you’d like to just see the posts specific to each daily topic, here you go:
I also have created several free information products you may be interested in reading. The only catch is, they’re only available to newsletter subscribers at this point. But what the hey, they’re still FREE!
The Freelance Copywriter – a free e-book discussing the benefits of hiring a freelance copywriter to improve your marketing communications.
Ten Ways to Spruce Up Your Copy – A special report discussing a ten-step method for infusing passion and power into everything you write.
Instant Expert – A special report discussing how the power of publishing can bring you untold benefits as you become the expert in your field of choice.
