5 Actionable Articles to Help Your Writing Today

actionable articlesHappy new month!

I’m always happy whenever it is December, because December is always a special month for me. Almost every great thing that has ever happened to me happened in December (and I would like to believe that isn’t a coincident considering the fact I was born on the 22nd of December).

Seriously, since I believe this month will be a special month for me, I want it to be for you too, and as a result I want to do more than just share my knowledge with you. In this article I will be sharing links to five different articles from other great and experienced writers online, and I hope these tips help you achieve something significant this month.

3. 4 Website Traffic Generation Myths You Should Ignore

If you’re a freelance writer you probably know that one of the best ways to build a successful freelance writing business is to build a high traffic blog.

I know you’ve probably read countless articles online on traffic generation but you just can’t seem to pull it off. Well, you’re being lied to! Maybe not intentionally, though.

In this article on BloggingTips, I list some of the 4 most circulated traffic generation myths you should beware of.

4. How to Use and Measure Social Media: A Writer’s Guide

If you try to take a look at my Twitter and Facebook accounts you will notice I don’t have many followers/fans, and if you take a look at the social buttons on this blog you will notice that they are hardly used. The reason is simple, I know little to nothing about social media, and I could care less.

Mind you, I’m not trying to say social media doesn’t work. It works, and it can help you do wonders if you can leverage it.

Sean Platt is an expert at getting results from social media sites, and he gives some tips to help you get results in this article.

Many of you know that I’m an avid fan of Pat Flynn, which is why I read every single article he publishes religiously (even if I will read nothing again that week).

This article is also one of the value-packed articles he publishes on his blog constantly, and he gives some tips to help you get your readers to trust you and become fans for live.

    Social media works, but it needs a lot of time and energy to be dedicated to it. Just by creating a FB/G+ page, nothing much happens! It depends on where someone has decided to put their bets on. If they bet on social media, they better work on it to achieve their results!
