I agree with the post’s author 100%. Asking someone to stop writing because they’re hurting your chances of success is like asking someone to stop dating because you’re not able to get a date.
I updated my Publications & Mentions page. It should be flushed out with more in depth details concerning my blogging, my stint as a columnist, and my published creative writing, and some of my undergraduate work. I’ve done quite a bit of stuff throughout the years, but most of the details are lacking primarily because I have to dig through old stuff (that is probably still sitting in a box from when I moved to Colorado ~2 years ago), and find out what those details were. This is probably pretty minor news for you guys, but for me, it’s a step in the right direction. It is important, as an author trying to get published, to make sure I have all of my credentials and previously published work listed out accurately. Although I haven’t been writing a ton lately, I have definitely been reading a lot. Mostly advice for blogging, keeping an author platform, improving SEO, and link building. Here are a couple of helpful articles that you might enjoy as well:
These are just a couple that I have kept up and keep reading and going through related content for. If you have a favorite resource for writing, submitting poems/short stories/etc to lit agents and publishers, info for bloggers on improving SEO or readership, then please share! I’d love to see what you all are reading.
So one of my favorite blogs posted some really good insights for writers that are planning on making resolutions for New Years. While the advice can apply to just about anyone, it is really useful for writers, bloggers, etc. So please give it a read here: http://writersrelief.com/blog/2013/12/stick-to-your-new-years-writing-resolutions/.
