If you are new to Article Writing, or even if you have been doing it for awhile now, here is a really good resource you should know about. Cathy Stucker (The Idea Lady) has a Blogger Link Up that you really should subscribe to.
Networking is a huge part of any career and if you are wanting to work from home, networking becomes even more critical to your income. Working from home can lead to isolation which in turn can lead to procrastination which in turn can lead to ZERO dollars that month in income. You wouldn’t be the only person this has happened to – it is so easy to become distracted and lose your focus.
There have been some great articles on More Dollars at Home focusing on how to keep your motivation. Read through them to get some ideas to help yourself when you find yourself not at your computer during the day.
As I said, networking is critical to working from home and Cathy Stucker’s BLU will help you to connect to other writers working from home. You will also get some great networking possibilites for product reviews and giveaways.
There are five categories that you will find on Cathy’s BLU that you can use for networking. Here they are:
Request Guest Posts – if you have a website and want more relevant content, submit a request for guest posters. This website More Dollars at Home has had some wonderful articles lately written by guest posters. My request for articles that I submitted to Cathy’s BLU list has brought some of these writers here to this site. So if you are looking for great content for your own site, submit a request!
Offer Guest Posts – If you are a writer looking to expand your name recognition, submit an offer to write guest posts. Anyone looking for good content can read through the list of offers and get in touch with you. The more you get your name out onto the internet, the more your name becomes recognized.
Request Sources for Interviews – Want to do an article about the current economy, and wish to include an interview with someone more expert than yourself? Then submit a request for an interview and hopefully you will find someone with relevant information that you can interview.
Offer Products for Giveaways – Maybe you don’t have any products to offer as a Giveaway. Come at this one from the other angle! Read through the submissions and get in touch with those who DO have a product and want to do a giveaway. You may need to write a review of the product.
Announce Contests and Giveaways – If you’re having a contest or giveaway on your website, be sure to submit it to Cathy’s BLU. You will get more entries and thus more traffic than just advertising the contest on your own website.
Here’s the link to sign up for Cathy Stucker’s (The Idea Lady) Blogger Link Up. So go ahead and sign up for it and make use of the BLU as a part of your regular networking!
