We all have problems, don’t we?
Let me tell you, I’ve had a rough few months. First, my computer got hacked. (Give this a read and learn how to protect yourself from falling victim to a scam! I’m sure Carolyn from The Wonder of Tech would appreciate a few new readers!)
Then my parents decided to sell my childhood home.
Then I moved back to my apartment (I had been staying with them because my mom broke her arm).
However, I managed to take a breather and go on an actual, honest-to-goodness vacation. (More on this later!)
For now, just let me say, I lived my dream. 🙂
And took the following picture with my phone. It’s a palm tree on the beach in Punta Cana.
What’s New on Wording Well
Now let’s talk design and accessibility for a minute.
Some of you may have noticed that Wording Well has a new look. (Do you like it?)
To go with this new look is a new newsletter, with a new design. (I’d appreciate feedback on it, too!)
If you are NOT on my mailing list yet, then join it now! (You get a free e-book, too.) 😉
As far as the blog goes, it’s a good thing that I am a person who knows how to plan ahead!
It’s also good that I know a lot of people (remember, always be networking!!!) and that I have had some of these people write for my blog.
But… you probably still want to hear from me, too, right?
I can assure you, then, that a lot of the information coming up on Wording Well has been written and assembled by yours truly.
I’m not superwoman, despite what many people think, but I am organized!
This past week, in fact, I published not one, but two, posts (although they’ve been written by others):
I also re-vamped my site. A bit.
I created a Resource Kit (it’s on its own page).
I re-did my home page (it’s now called All About Wording Well).
I optimized my SEO for my Freelancing Services page, which links to the four different services Wording Well offers.
And I have attempted to make it easier for readers to comment on my site. (Turns out, people were having problems AND DIDN’T TELL ME!)
So I enabled the free version of CommentLuv. I hope it’s easier for you to speak your mind now! (IF IT ISN’T, PLEASE TELL ME! Email me, talk to me on Facebook, use Twitter, but TELL ME!)
Resources for You (and an Advertising Opportunity!)
I also updated the post Resources for #Writers (#Authors and #Freelancers) with a few new links.
Some people have paid me to “advertise” on this page via a link, too. Because their content is awesome, I allowed this.
I will extend the same courtesy to YOU. If you have a post that contains a plethora of information and is helpful, and want me to add a link to your site from one of my pages or posts, please contact me with your query.
Tell me which post you want to advertise on, and send me the link of the post you want me to link to. If it’s Wording Well-worthy, I’ll send you an invoice via PayPal, which is safe, secure, and free to use. It does not require an account and accepts credit cards.
For more information, see my Write/Advertise page.
Freelancing Resources for You
I’ve come across a few SUPERB resources that other freelancers I know have created… such as Gina Horkey’s courses, Elna Cain’s courses, and a post by Brent Jones (which you surely MUST”VE seen by now…)
In case you haven’t, give it a read.
It’s called 70 Freelancers Reveal Their Best Source of New Business.
Brent also has a special offer for you, and I’m excited to tell you that IF YOU CLICK THIS LINK AND BUY HIS $9 PRODUCT, I make a small commission for helping you out.
That’s the kinda guy Brent is. 😉
Find out everything at:
(Brent Jones’ post for freelancers)
Apparently, the freelancers who contributed to this article earned an average of OVER $40K in 2015, and are earning even more this year!
I highly suggest that you check this out if you are a freelancer (either new or established) who is looking for new ideas on how and where to earn money!
Brent has also created a premium product, 62 Strategies to Establish or Increase Your Prices.
It’s only $9 and features many of the same freelancers who contributed to his post.

Did You Know…?
You can use your life experiences to move yourself and your business forward.
I did! (And I’m still doing it!)
You can also start earning money with your blog using AdSense.
You can also earn affiliate income by promoting others’ products… such as Gina Horkey’s 30 Days or Less to Freelancing Writing Success.
I do this from time to time. It probably won’t pay the bills, but it’ll give you some extra spending money (and who doesn’t want that, right!).
