Once a month, I round up some of the inspiring, intriguing and interesting things that I’ve read and written recently and share them all with you.
- My husband and I are finally catching up on The Walking Dead. We wait until the season is over so that we can binge if we
needwant to. The acting and directing and writing are all coming together for “keep me on the edge of my seat” season. For me, it all starts with the writing, and it’s been great.
- Tips for getting freelance writing work keeps it real
- How to structure a great article
- How to begin a relationship with a reporter. It may feel awkward, but come from a genuine desire to connect and this approach can work for you.
- The case for etiquette in emails and communications (specifically between professors and students)
- I fall into that awkward not Gen X, not Millenial generation gap, so a lot of this article sounded familiar to me–although being Canadian our early video game was Cross Country Canada, not The Oregon Trail. (Found via Young House Love.)
My writing elsewhere:
- It’s been a terrible season for ticks so far this spring. I shared my tips for dealing with them on ThatMutt.com.
- Thanks to a car accident, we had cause to consider our emergency plan for our pets.
- May was a two-room reveal month. In addition to the office makeover, I shared our basement TV area, which was the biggest renovation we’ve ever tackled–and we did almost all of it ourselves.
- The final report on how interior basement waterproofing works in a very wet spring.
- How much money do you make having solar panels? I share the answer after three years of solar panels
- Robot vacuum pros and cons
