I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but I volunteer to do blog posts for our friends at Eastside Urban Farm & Garden Center. We believe in what they are trying to do, namely promote urban farming, and I figure helping them in this way is just a very simple way for me to give them a helping hand. In turn they give us items to “borrow” when we need them, like rabbit hutches or grow lights. It’s a nice bartering system utilizing our individual strengths.
I mention that because from that volunteer writing I received a referral for a paying blog job, so out of the blue some extra money came in…all because I did a little marketing while volunteering.
And that leads us to the point today.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
If you write for money, then this lesson has to be ingrained in your psyche. You are a business and your writing is your product. How you present your product will determine how your sales are in the future.
TIP OF THE DAY
Every piece of writing reflects on you, the writer, so make it your best product every time you sit down and write. This includes social networking, by the way. Sure, we all relax a bit on Facebook, but you also have possible future customers reading what you are writing on that site, so try not to be too lazy when there.
PROMPT OF THE DAY
A recent article of mine was about metaphors, so let’s make that the prompt today. Write a metaphor about Thanksgiving.
I’M BEHIND SO THAT WILL BE ENOUGH TODAY
I seem to always be behind. Sigh! Well, that’s good for you because that means less you have to read, right?
Have a great day of writing, my friends.
