Writers’ Roundup: October 14
October 14, 2011
Links from this week you might enjoy:
- Rose Egge, a 20-something who’s battling cancer, writes about how her work here is not finished. If this doesn’t make you get moving on what you’ve always wanted to do, I don’t know what will.
- One of my new favorite online personalities, Jade Craven, has launched the first edition of her digital magazine, Launch Watch. It’s all about tips for launching products — that includes ebooks, courses, etc. — and what new products have recently launched. Fascinating stuff.
- Love this Brazen post from Marian Schembari about what a job seeker’s Twitter bio should — and shouldn’t — look like. This applies to everyone!
- Whether we succeed often comes down to initiative, says Jen Gresham of Everyday Bright. So true.
One other quick note: I’m now an affiliate for Airtreks, the ticket vendor that helped me cobble together a string of one-way flights for my trip through Africa (because I recommend them). If you’re thinking about buying a long-haul ticket, I hope you’ll consider using that link!
Have a great weekend! I’ll see you back here Monday for the launch of How to Take a Career Break to Travel!
