Jul 26, 2013 | 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. Here are some recent blog posts and articles that might help. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on your blogging workflow and writing good headlines.

From Syed Balkhi: How to Streamline Your WordPress Blogging Workflow
“I own and manage numerous multi-author blogs including WPBeginner, the largest free WordPress resource site. Through the years of experience, I have signifincalty streamlined my editorial workflow which allows me to focus my time on growing my business.”

From Jackson Nwachukwu: 5 Tips To Writing Irresistibly Clickable Blog Titles
“An average of 8 readers out of 10 will read a blog post title, while less than 3 out of the same 10 readers will read the rest of the article. This simple statistic shows how your post title greatly affects the entire content of your post.”

Wally’s Comment: Even if you’re not interested in “Irresistibly Clickable” titles, read this post for information about what punctuation you should never use in a headline.
