2/7/14: The Writing Edge for Business Writers

  |   Better Writing Print Friendly and PDF

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to one or two pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on improving your content and more alternatives for those business buzzwords.

From ProBlogger: Content Week
“This past week, we’ve been talking about all things content – where can we get it? What inspires us? What works with our audience? What are some out-of-the-box ideas that will set us apart from the regular blogging crowd? We spoke with Chantelle Ellem, of Fat Mum Slim, who encouraged us to write what we love, and Carly Heitlinger of The College Prepster, who told us to take a topic and make it personal. We wrote a mega-list of places to go when we’re fresh out of ideas to inspire us again, and we heard from Darren on the topic.”

Wally’s Comment: This has been “Content Week” at ProBlogger. The post above includes pointers to all of the week’s post on improving your content.
