Writers Who Rock: Best of the Blogathon

26 May

Someone told me this is Memorial Day weekend. What? So soon?Daily blogging ending soon

This weekend also brings an end to my Blogathon 2012 Best of the Blogathon 2012 roundups. You might be glad. You might be sad.

I hope you, like me, have learned something and subscribed to a few of these outstanding blogs on your Google Reader.

Here are my choices from this week:

Hands Off Your Cell! by the Gadget Girl. This lighthearted entry offers tips on how to game-fully leave those phones at the door (literally). This seemed especially appropriate since I joined the smart phone ranks just this week.

Business Writing Elmore Leonard Style at Write Better Faster. I love practical. And practical is what you get with these wisdom gems from Jodi Torpey’s fortuitous meeting with a best-selling author.

How to Brand Content on a Budget by Sara Lancaster at No. 2 Pencil. Sara offers consistently great advice for small businesses. Branding is such a soon-to-be-overused buzz word/concept right now, don’t you want to join the bandwagon, too?

The Cheesiest Jingle and Cutest Monkey Writers Ever. Because she made me laugh so hard, Sara Lancaster made my list twice this week. But please, swallow your coffee before watching her video or it’ll be coming out of your nose.

5 Newbie Mistakes I’d Avoid if I Started Blogging Today… by Michelle Rafter. Wednesday was our If I started blogging today theme day and, of course, when experts speak, it is wise to listen. Considering Michelle is our Blogathon Mama, though she has never claimed to be the expert, she does have the chops to prove she knows what she is talking about. Worth reading, for sure.

That’s it. Have a great weekend. Let me know what you think of these in the comments below.

      Of course you did! And I am hoping you will be honored enough to be a guest poster next month?
