The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 8/11/17

Aug 11, 2017 | Resource Lists

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. The posts are about the intertwined tasks of reading and writing. Some weeks there are more pointers than others.

This week I’m pointing you to lists of web tools and services, WordPress plug-ins, and business tools for writers.

These solutions were compared with many others and have better functionalities, are faster, more secure and are budget friendly.”

From Jane Friedman: The WordPress Plugins I Can’t Live Without

“As every WordPress site owner knows (at least those of you who self-host), plugins are one of the most wonderful and useful things about WordPress. Much of the functionality you need, someone else needs, too—which means there’s probably a plugin that provides it, without you having to hire additional help or learn how to change the WordPress code.”
