Thanks for the great Tips, one tip I would like to add, is keep a notepad in your pcoket and whenever you think of an article Idea write it in the notepad and you can go back later on and write an article for it.

I know a notepad is the old way of doing things I guess you could also do it on your phone but I like my notepad.

I still use a note pad at my bedside because many of my ideas for articles come during the night. Several poems have come to me like that I am trying to get better organized at my computer. I am prone to scribble notes on whatever is at hand and then I have to look for them. I aim to put my notes in a composition style notebook so it won’t take so much of my time looking for the note I need. This was an excellent list of tips and presented in a video using humor. Thank you.

You are kidding,right? I hope that this is just a simplistic play on words… Lenny WORDSMITH and Calvin GRAMMAR ? You don’t think that’s too obvious? I just asked my friends Peter Pronoun and Steven Spellacheck if this sounded a bit corny or not,and we asked Andy Article if he knew these two you mentioned. He said no,but he knew that Sammy Sentence might. Turns out that he went to school with William Writealot and Peter Paragraph who was a student of Vinnie Verb and Allen Adjective! Small world after all. Too funny! Why are you using these fake names in the first place? Just stick with rule #9 and maybe cut out the corny stuff….not funny at all.

Yes, we are kidding. It was definitely meant to be a play on words. I regret that our sense of humor doesn’t align with yours – do you have any suggestions as to how we can make future videos funnier?

Great tips, and congrats on this site’s success. I would also like to add that is a great place to garner new information from industry experts.

Join Linkedin discussion groups, respond to questions, add some valued advice or just sit back and watch the advice roll in. You might also want to think about reaching out to some of the discussion respondents and ask for their permission to quote them in one of your articles. Most people have no problem with seeing their name in lights – so happy writing!
