Weekend Announcements...

In the middle of the madness, I wanted to check in with you groovy folks to keep you updated with projects and progress here at Pen and Prosper and items of interest around the Net.

So, let's get started...

I'm pleased as punch to announce that I have a guest post over at Men with Pens! The topic? "6 Reasons Every Serious Blogger Should Blog for the Big Dogs!"
Do you think that strategy is important to blogging success?

If you have an opportunity, stop by and weigh in. I'd love to get your thoughts, and already there has been a pretty interesting exchange under way.

Coffeehouse for Writers will present its new line-up of fun, interactive online classes on August 1st. There are great offerings for writers of all levels and genres. Popular classes include: Blogging for Profit, Grammar Boot Camp, Social Media Savvy, How to Quit Your Day Job, and more. Enroll today for a more profitable and prosperous writing future! See Coffeehouseforwriters.com/ for details. Please note that the site is currently under construction, so if you are not able to register successfully, try back again on Tuesday, (which is the estimated time of completion).

New clients have brought about new projects. Though there is much to be said about the ecstasy of a byline, I'm also digging the dynamics of ghost writing these days. Look forward to a future post to recap my adventures over the last year or so.

Hope Clark is sponsoring her annual contest for writers. The theme is Diligence. Check out her site for more details at Fundsforwriters.com.

Anything interesting happening in your neck of the wood? Good news? Do share.

  1. I stopped by Men with Pens and enjoyed your guest post's practical, strategic tips. The comments discussion was a good one, and I weighed in with a line or two.

    As I've said in the past, I appreciate that your voice and positivity shine through in each of your posts.

    Be well.
