Read my review here




Yesterday the grandchildren broke up from school for two weeks holidays. 

As much as I love them, I don't relish two whole weeks of three kiddies 24/7. I've made a few plans to keep them entertained, so fingers crossed they don't get bored.

At least the weather is mostly fine right now (it's Spring here).

I've been busy since the last issue, and one of the things I've done is added a new free course.

This one is Holly Lisle's Plot Outline course.  If you'd like to sign up, go to our courses page. It's listed right at the top. (The course includes a 17 page mini-course ebook!)

Look out for another mini-course that should be available soon.

Okay, onto this issue.

I'm pleased to announce Paul Callaghan has been secured as columnist for Writer2Writer.

I've been aware of Paul for some time now after he won a Writer2Writer contest.  Since that time I've seen some of his work, and occasionally pop over to his blog.

Paul's articles will outline various ways you can make money as a writer.  He has been doing that for some time now, and like me, cringes when people say writers need to specialize. The problem with doing that is it limits your earning potential.

Paul's first article talks about whether or not writers need a blog.  This is a subject I discuss with other writers often, and I'm sure you'll find it helpful.

That's it from me, time to sit back and enjoy this issue.

Til next time…

Why Every Writer

Needs a Blog

Paul Callaghan– All Rights Reserved


There are probably thousands of different ways that a writer can make a living with words. One of the best ways to show prospective clients that you have what they need is to write your own blog.

It’s easy to set up your own blog for free. The two biggest blogging platforms, Blogger and Wordpress, are very simple to understand and allow you a wide range of styles to choose from. Which one you pick will come down to personal preference. Some people like the look of Wordpress more, others are swayed by the fact that Blogger is a Google product and so might make it easier to rate in their searches.

Why should you choose a free platform for your blog?


If you are already making a living as a writer then it is possible that a paid platform, with your own domain, will be more suitable for your blog. If you are just starting out then it makes sense to keep your outgoings as small as possible. When I became a full time writer I made myself a promise.


I would have to earn the money from writing to invest in my business. But how could I earn money without being able to show prospective clients my work? The answer was a free blog. I chose Blogger simply because I already had a Google account and so it was more straightforward for me.
