Write Wednesday, Vol. 17

Write Wednesday, Vol. 17

[su_box title=”Note from the Editor” box_color=”#e15f24″]

So, a White Wednesday on a Friday?

I know, I know. We were late in delivering the post for this week. Our bad 🙂

However, there is a deeper reason that explains our lack of attention for this series, which just dawned on me early this week.

The purpose of Write Wednesday is to educate aspiring writers on how to establish a freelance career or a blog by curating the week’s best posts.

However, after talking to Tor Refsland of Time Management Chef, I have decided to stop the Write Wednesday series on this blog.

Rest assured; I will find a new home for Write Wednesday on a different site, which is currently being developed.

I cannot spill the beans yet about the changes that this blog will undergo, but this is all I can say for the time being.

Thanks to May for taking over the Write Wednesday series and finding the best weekly posts that writers and bloggers will find useful.

Until then, please enjoy the last Write Wednesday post (for now).

” If you want to ensure that the right audience consumes the content you design, create and share, you have to “hunt” where they are. But to do so successfully, you must first know what they desire in the way of bait (content). ”  – Ronell Smith

“I’ve never met a person who says they have too much time, especially when it comes to creating content!

But here’s a fact: successful bloggers, YouTubers, and podcasters have the same number of hours in a day as you. Everybody has the same time to create content, but not everybody makes it a priority. The real question isn’t having the time, it’s whether you have the tenacity and drive to do it … and keep doing it.”  – Mark Schaefer
