What I’ve done this week to help further my online copywriting career:
- Being impressed at the initiative and drive demonstrated in How to Get Great Blogging Clients…Even if You’re a Teenage Nigerian, the story of how a 16-year-old Bamidele Onibalusi rose to being paid over $5,000 a month through blogging.
- Pondering the mysteries of Google and why good SEO doesn’t always mean high rankings in How Google Makes Liars Out Of The Good Guys In SEO from seomoz.
- Picking up tips on how to quickly pick up at least two freelance copywriting jobs in How to Get Well-Paid Copywriting Jobs Without Being a Suck-Up by Freelance Copywriter/Blogger James Brown.
- Learning how to write an article in 30 minutes or less with AWAI Online and then taking it up a notch with Copyblogger in How To Write An Article In 20 Minutes Or Less.
- Getting More Done In Less Time with Marie Forleo. I love Marie’s writing style and her great advice is only made more interesting by her uber-confident video blogs. Jealous.
- Adding the Disqus plugin to my WordPress blog, to help stop spam and make it easier for me to reply to my comments. I’ve also set up a profile so that I can quickly add comments to other blogs using Disqus, too.
- Reading more of Darren Rowse’s Problogger book. Seriously recommended if you have any interest in making money from your blog — Darren’s advice is simple, easy to put into practice and obviously comes from real passion for blogging.
- Learning how to prevent pesky direct/none traffic in Google Analytics from the Conversioneer.
