The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 2/24/17

Feb 24, 2017 | Better Writing

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 articles and blog posts that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. Some weeks there are more pointers than others.

This week I’m pointing you to pieces on how to use hashtags and how to tell when it’s time to stop revising.

From Susan Gilbert: Hashtags: How They Differ On Each Social Network

“Twitter may have been the first social sharing site to use hashtags to increase visibility — other networks like Facebook, Instagram and Google Plus have become just as important when it comes to getting your content noticed.”

Thanks to Frances Caballo for pointing me to this post.

From Jerry Jenkins: How to Know You’re Finally Finished Rewriting: When Is Enough Revision Enough?

“When is enough enough? How do you know when a sentence is the best it can be?”

Sources I Check Regularly

I find the posts and articles that I share with you on The Writing Edge in many places. But there are a few that provide insightful pieces again and again. Here they are.
