Best Practices for Hiring the Perfect Content Writer

Best Practices for Hiring the Perfect Content Writer | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

100 Resources for Writers

100 Resources for Writers | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
In compiling this list of writer's resources, my goal is to provide you with a starting point for online exploration.

So if you hate some of this stuff? Fine, not my fault! If you love it? I take full credit!

 

There really is a lot of stuff here. I recommend bookmarking this page. Come back any time to browse, because it took me days to compile and it’s not going anywhere...

Paris Hilton has one. Rob Lowe has one too. Even Sharon Osbourne’s got one.
