1.Keep Up To Date With A Blog

An e-mail newsletter is one way to stay up to date on a subject you care about. If you are reading this, you know about e-mail newsletters.

But there is a way you can be even more frequently updated. It's by subscribing to a blog.

A blog is a Web log.

Anyone can write one and millions of poeple do. Most blogs are personal journals posted for the world to read.

Others, like mine, keep interested people updated on a topic of interest.

I have been writing a blog on writing, editing, publishing issues. You can always visit it by going to and clicking on the button that says Editor's Blog.

Or you can go directly to In fact, some people choose to bookmark the page so they can find it easily.

Others go one step farther and subscribe to the blog. Those people are notified whenever I post something new. Depending on the service the person subscribes through, they could see the title or a bit of text from the beginning of the blog entry. Then they decide if they want to click into the blog to read the whole post.

There's a little orange box on the left side of the blog page with a link that explains how to sign up if this option appeals to you.

No e-mail messages filling up the in box.

Use it at your convenience.

I archive my blog entries so you can visit whenever you like and search for topics of interest.
