Of all of the posts I read this week that are of interest to me as a blogger/ writer, these are the real standouts that you shouldn’t miss!
On Writing and Reading
- State of Self-Publishing. Terrific podcast from The Creative Penn.
- From Burned Out to On Fire: My Story Of Personal Success in the Writing World. Joshua Rarrick shares his freelance writing story on The Change Blog.
In Blogging and Social Media
- 15 Bloggers to Watch in 2013. Problogger does the annual roundup, the last one Darren plans on doing, of bloggers to watch this year. This one is focused mostly on Australian bloggers.
- Top 10 Writing Blogs of 2012. Another roundup, this one from Write To Done.
- Craftypod Encourages Us To Support the Online Products we Love. I was so sad to hear that Diane has to end the craftypod Podcast due to costs even though I totally understand. What I think is great, however, is that she uses her goodbye blog post about it to encourage us to pay for the things online that we like and she has some really smart things to say about the topic.
- How to Get Adobe Creative Suit Legally for Free. Lifehack software download guide.
