Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it’s May already!

I know, I’ve been bad, not posting a lot in April and all. I really need to work on that. Don’t be made at me please.

But I am changing that.

I thought it would be good to keep myself on track by having weekly roundup of news and notes on writing that I constantly find on the internet.

Why?

People who don’t check my Twitter feed constantly or aren’t connected with me on LinkedIn or Google Plus don’t see what I’ve shared, so I wanted to post weekly what I’m reading and sharing that makes a super impact on your writing.

This keeps with my goal of writing 100 blog posts, but to also share what keeps me going and why I shared it. You now have a blueprint you can reference and not miss out!

So, here is a list of awesome articles that got my attention. This first one is super long, because I’m catching up on my news feeds from the last two weeks. Oops!

So here we go!
