Plus unboxing videos and links to my new collection, Whatcha Gonna Do. It's not clear that the most trafficked posts are my best posts, but it's a fine place to start.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Seth Godin has released a list of his top blog post of 2012.  I am so thankful that this man has provided short tips for me to improve my careeer, my production, and my outlook for the past four years.  He is a great example of doing something every day to build something big.  His ideas are very relavent both for marketers and those building a social media presence.

Seth understands brevity and great headlines. Takes no time to "read" these posts all of which are informative and fun. Read my story of spending a day with Seth here:

Lettrs Encourages Thoughtful Digital Writing And A Slower Communications Movement

Lettrs Encourages Thoughtful Digital Writing And A Slower Communications Movement | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Letters are dissapearing from our cuture.  This is an interesting tool to bring back this important part of our culture.

Ken

 

Students are being encouraged - conditioned in fact - by many social platforms to like, comment, tweet, text, or send at communication speeds that are more akin to a reflex rather than a well-composed expression of thought and ideas.

SPOS #317 - Get Writing With Jeff Goins

SPOS #317 - Get Writing With Jeff Goins | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Do you think you have a book in you? A blog? A blog post? A clever tweet? Do you love the industry that you serve? Do you write about it? There's no doubt about it, writing will make you smarter, better and more informed about your life (both personally and professionally). The problem is that most people don't know where to start. They think that writers have some kind of special, unique gift. Jeff Goins can help you. I read his e-book, You Are A Writer (So Start Acting Like One) and it gave me a ton of insight. Ricardo Bueno was kind enough to make an e-intro, and I was thrilled that Jeff agreed to come on to the podcast. Jeff has since published his first book, Wrecked, and continues to blog regularly about how to write and how to become a better writer. Enjoy the conversation...

10 Types Of Writing For eLearning: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning

10 Types Of Writing For eLearning: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Not only do we need skills for expository, creative, persuasive and technical writing, but we often write about topics for which we know very little at first. Furthermore, our writing is expected to be motivating while clearly delivering concepts, procedures and facts.
Here you’ll find some brief guidelines that focus on each type of writing. Much of this writing is done in storyboards, so I didn’t include writing for storyboards as a separate type. What other types of writing for eLearning can you think of?
