This has nothing to do with my work or writing but felt I should share I am now a newly sworn in American citizen! Perfect timing for me to be able to add this to my book, of course! More than anything else, it brings the husband's life here full-circle considering he has been here for ages and slowly working his way through this grand moment in time. We happen to be the first in our respective families that have moved to the US and undergone the process of applying to be citizens. Its time to celebrate!
These modules are becoming more and more difficult for me each month! This time, its about creating continuity products - things that have you making sales time and time again, be it a product or service. I am stuck on this one so I really hope the next module helps me crack this or I wont be able to move ahead on this journey! Have tons of work just about now so finding it really difficult to apply myself to this exercise. Oh well, work beckons. Meanwhile, feel free to check out more about the Year of Profit and Chris Guillebeau.

Now this is a Friday I really deserve to treat myself! Had a fabulous week looking back :
Monday I began working as the new Asst Editor for one of the websites I used to write for previously.
I have articles being spruced up for a finance website, a trade publication and a social media site. Also found my article on education was published in Newcomer Atlanta! Oh and those entertainment industry folks I wrote for previously mailed me back to do their cover story as well.
Wednesday was the last Ed2010Atlanta meet-up and Tiffini of Tastemaker was such a treat! Not only did she agree to be speaker and mix and mingle and share and encourage the attendees, she even arranged for the food and the giveaway!
And that book and travel website that I've been putting on the backburner are coming along nicely - you will know more when you should know more ;)
Oh and I will also begin writing a restaurant review section for one of the mags I currently work with so that's another fun gig to look forward to.
Treating myself to a nice dinner tonight and looking forward to next week when I will begin editing another book by my dear friend Angela.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
Ed2010 Atlanta's last speaker session for the year is today! Don't say you never knew...if you still want to make it just show up...attendance is free! RSVP here.
I love a good inspirational / motivational message every now and then and Marc and Angel hack life is a great website for just that. I am subscribed to their newsletters and every few days I will receive something meaningful and doable that simply makes my day and gives me an all time high. I have shared many posts with friends on social media and have always received a word of thanks for sharing the website. I hope you enjoy learning of this site as well, if you did not know about it already. Happy reading!
Another very useful website I turn to quite often is Hubspot. They have tons of very useful information and most of it you can just receive by signing up for their newsletters. They have everything from informational presentations to pdf docs that you can download and read later to implement for your own business. Their marketing software is something I cannot afford right now but maybe it might suit your needs. I have found some of their weekly posts helpful as also their marketing grader that I check out every few months to keep my website in check. They do have a free trial period to check out their software so make the most of it!
Sharing another fave website with you that has helped greatly with my writing, be it an article idea, or a new place to pitch or even just something motivational to focus on. Carol Tice has been in the freelance writing field forever and she shares a bunch of very useful pointers on her site. She covers everything from websites to marketing and more. Of course, not everything comes for free - she has to pay her bills too, but there is a lot you can learn on her site without having to pay for anything. Check it out and do share your thoughts. It really is practical help for hungry writers.
