Writing a blog can sometimes be an isolating experience. You hammer out a post each week (well, most weeks anyway) before publishing it and hoping someone somewhere will find it useful.
Unlike paidÂ tasks, you donâ€™t get the luxury of an email or phone call letting you know whether youâ€™re on the right track. Instead, comments and backlinks are the lifeblood that feeds yourÂ desire to keep pumping out posts.
So it was uplifting to be listed in Odeskâ€™s Top 40 Writing Blogs, alongside such illustrious names as The Copywriter Underground, Copyblogger and Bob Bly (and alongside another 36 excellent writing blogs too).
Now the heat is on to carry on delivering whatever it is thatâ€™s earned me such an accolade. With so many writing blogs out there, I donâ€™t take such recognition lightly.
If youâ€™ve arrived here from Odesk for the first time, welcome to The Copywriterâ€™s Crucible.
What youâ€™ll find here are tips on improving your income, building your copywriting skills and how you can make yourself more valuable to clients.
I hope youâ€™ll consider subscribing to my humble blog because it is, after all, you, my readers, that keeps this blog alive.
