Great Stuff on the Writers’ Blogs, June 23, 2012

Feeling a little Clint Eastwood-ish this morning. Not Harry Callahan-ish, but man-with-no-name-ish, as in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Not good/bad/ugly about me, personally, you understand but about what’s out there on the blogosphere today. Let’s start with the good:

  • Two very helpful posts for anyone who uses WordPress as their software backbone for their blog (from WordPress.org, not .com):
  • And now the bad, as in bad (poor, excessive, hyped, cliched) use of language. Porter Anderson (@Porter_Anderson) waxes lengthy on Writer Unboxed about ‘Social’: Over the Top language on Twitter, Facebook, etc. The. Best. Ever. (Not!) 🙂 (His assessment, not mine about his.)
  • And the really ugly: Victoria Strauss (@VictoriaStrauss) warns about yet More Money-Wasting “Opportunities” for Writers on Writer Beware (R) Blogs! It’s depressing how many companies there are out there whose business model is simply preying on the gullible, the greedy, and the desperate-for-success.

That’s all for today. Have a great, fab, best-ever 🙂 weekend.
