Stay sharp by writing Editor's Notes #88
September 01, 2010
Hello,

By needing to create content every 2 weeks,
I'm learning stuff from myself, in a funny way.
I'm writing things I didn't know I knew;
I'm coming up with twists on stuff I didn't know I had.

-- Tracy Culleton

1. Stay sharp -- Create a writer's Web site
2. Tickled my funnybone
3. Interesting Web site

==========
1. Stay sharp -- Create a writer's Web site
Continuing with the theme of writers and Web sites, this issue highlights the fact that Web sites -- good Web sites, successful Web sites, Web sites that draw traffic and make money -- usually need maintenance, and that maintenance can grow your little gray cells.

As Tracy points out in the quote above, writing usually involves learning. Many of us write to sort out problems or to clarify our thinking. Among other things, Tracy writes for her sites.

When you have a Web site, it's good to add something to it regularly. Search engines like that and reward you by placing you higher in their search results so others can find you. So a Web site can keep you writing, and writing, good writing, is a great way to learn, to stay on top of your topic, to stay generally sharp mentally.

I learned the tip about the importance of adding to a Web site and many other ways to make a Web site successful in the free ebook available at this link
http://mycps.inspected4u.com (except that it wasn't free then. I had to pay.)It's just been updated to include tips on the best uses of social networking.

A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart.

3. Interesting Web site
