Freelance Ponderings & Advice: Writing Outside

Just wanted to let you know about the latest issue of Freelance Ponderings and Advice. This issue is about writing outside. One of my favorite things to do!



It’s Time to Check Out the New Freelance Ponderings and Advice

Yesterday I told you I was going to be announcing how to get the new issues of Freelance Ponderings and Advice as each are written, so you wont have to wait so long for the seasonal issues to be posted to the archive site. This post is to introduce you to that email list.

This screenshot is from the spring issue, Expand Your Writing Career: Fiction, and you won’t want to miss it. Yesterday I explained I was looking for a clean-cut platform, and I’ve found it through Mailchimp.

This issue is all about expanding your writing career by adding fiction. So many freelancers have a wonderfully creative side that is screaming at them to be allowed to express itself. Why not let it out?

Because each new newsletter will be emailed to you through this mailing list, they will not be posted to the archive site until later, when the next issue is published.

If you want to receive current issues during the proper season, and the special editions as soon as they come out, sign up for the email list now.

  • Subscribe to the Freelance Ponderings and Advice newsletter for new issues as they are published. Do this here!
  • To read the archived issues of the newsletter (always useful) Go Here!

Enjoy the newsletter!

P.S. I’m working on a few more things for the blog as well, in my spare time. I’m sure you will be pleased.

Freelance Ponderings and Advice, The Archives

I’ve been wanting to move my newsletter, Freelance Ponderings and Advice, from Tumblr for quite some time. I love Tumblr and plan to use it in the future, but I needed a little more creative freedom with the newsletter. I think the new platform will work better.

I chose to go with WordPress for the newsletter archives, and am happy with the outcome. I hope you will be too!

This is just an archive site, and wont house the current issue (spring) until the next issue is published. It’s simply a place to collect all the old issues in one place, but WordPress lets me do this in a more clean-looking, organized manner. I’m pleased, for sure.

What do you think? Visit Freelance Ponderings and Advice, The Archive to read any issues you may have missed over the years. I know many of you weren’t on this site in the beginning, so you’ll glean much information from the archive site. Here is a list of the newsletters over there. See anything you missed or would like to read again?

As each new issue is published, I’ll move the previous one to this site.

You’ll notice that I recently cleaned up the sidebars here on the site, deleting a lot of links and such. The old newsletter links were dismantled. I’m still doing some tweaking, but I think the blog is looking a bit more organized these days.

I also made a post on Tumblr, sending people to the new Archive site.

Happy reading!

P.S. I’m also setting up a new current newsletter platform, and will post again soon about how to sign up for each current issue of the free newsletter. It will be an email newsletter, rather than an email telling you to go to the blog.
