The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 7/3/14

Jul 3, 2014 | 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 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 email newsletters and blogging.

From David Carr: For Email Newsletters, a Death Greatly Exaggerated

“Email newsletters, old-school artifacts that were supposed to die with dial-up connections, are not only still around, but very much on the march.”

Wally’s Comment: David Carr is a must-read if you’re concerned about the world of media, taken in its broadest sense. In this piece he shares reasons why the death of email newsletters has been greatly exaggerated.

From John Hunter: The Benefits of Blogging

“ASQ interviewed me, and several other ASQ Influential Voices bloggers for an article published in the current issue of Quality Progress magazine: The Blog Boom.”

Wally’s Comment: There are some excellent insights in this piece, plus pointers to other interesting comments on blogging.
