Gear Up for a More Powerful Online Presence

Gear Up for a More Powerful Online Presence

Hey there! Before we get rolling, remember that if you’ve been thinking about moving your site to StudioPress Sites, this is the time.

Because we love to make your life easy, we’ll move your existing WordPress site over for free. And because we love to let you try stuff without stress, we’ll also give you your first month for free. It’s a sweet deal, but it goes away tomorrow, Friday, April 28, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific U.S. Time.

If you’d like a cost-effective way to get a fast, great-looking WordPress site that you don’t have to endlessly mess around with, I would strongly recommend you check this out.

This week on the blog, Brian Clark got our motor running on Monday with a thoughtful piece on what influence really means in a socially hyper-connected world — and how cheap shortcuts won’t do much more than waste your time.

On Tuesday, we introduced you to Loryn Thompson, our crazy-smart Data Analyst who also happens to love riding and working on vintage motorcycles. She’ll help you get started with social media advertising — without crashing into a concrete pillar.

And on Wednesday, I wrote about surviving the annoyances of social media, based on my nearly three decades of getting into pointless fights with people on the internet. I actually have figured a couple of things out, and I’m happy to share them with you.

On the Copyblogger FM podcast this week, I talked about the seven things that (in my experience) writers need to make a genuinely good living. And on The Writer Files, Kelton Reid looked into how bestselling author Douglas Coupland writes.

Hope you enjoy all the good stuff, and we’ll catch you next week!
