The Read SA Facebook group now has 1000 members. That's right ladies and gentlemen. ONE THOUSAND MEMBERS! In 4 months! So, many thanks to all of you who joined, posted links on your Facebook pages and profiles, Twitted etc. You know we couldn't have done this without you.
Spent most of the day doing edits on a client project. The great news is that the publication reads and looks great now, and I can see its full potential being realised. And all this happened because I slogged through lots of suggestions, lots of pen marks all over what should have been my wonderfully brilliant second draft. OK, don't laugh. I know and you know that the first draft always looks good at first glance, and you send it to the client and it comes back with pen marks and you think WTF? Didn't I just polish this copy? Then you get over yourself, consider each point that is being made and whether it improves the overall project, and you mae decisions, big and small. Of course, all this depends on your client actually knowing what they are doing, or you end up with The Most Expensive Publication Ever Made.
Spent the rest of the day writing guest posts for my promotion drive.
Question: Do you think that guest posts still have the potential to drive traffic to your blog, or are they now so passe it's not funny?
