5 Ways to Write a Damn Good Sentence

Literary theorist and legal scholar Stanley Fish said, “The skill it takes to produce a sentence, the skill of lining events, actions, and objects in a strict logic — is also the skill of creating a world.”

In other words, sentences are the engines of creativity. But your sentences don’t have to say much. They just have to say the right things.

So, when you are trying to get people to respond to your requests, subscribe to your email newsletter, or donate to your cause … you need to write seductive sentences, naturally.

Here’s how it’s done:

How to Make Your Content a Star


The potentially infinite number of stars in no way diminishes the value and importance of our own Sun. This particular star is so relevant to this particular audience that we perish without it.

That’s the way to think about content marketing.

How to Find Work That You’re Passionate About

This advice has been reduced to the common refrain of “follow your passion.” You’ll find it all over the career section of any bookstore, and see it tossed out by online gurus of every stripe.

Sounds fine, except research shows that following some abstract passion is not how most people find work they’re actually passionate about.

+Brian Clark explains:
http://further.net/passionate-work/
Is "follow your passion" good advice when it comes to doing meaningful work? Research says no, but you still have to find a way to do great work.

Are you thinking about your blog all wrong?

Not all that long ago, blogs were consumed consistently and comprehensively.

A blog was a comfortable slipper of information that fit into your daily (or near-daily) pattern because you were “fed” updates via RSS and/or email.

Your favorite blogs (and you could rattle off that list of favorites on command) were oft-updated collections of content from writers you felt you knew, about topics you embraced.

That's all changed. Jay Baer explains:

Content marketing links and advice from the folks at Copyblogger.
Introduction
Copyblogger doesn't just teach content marketing ... we built our company with it. 

Since January 2006, we've been teaching people how to create killer online content. Not bland corporate crap created to fill up a company webpage. Valuable information that attracts attention, drives traffic, and builds your business.

These days, that’s called content marketing. Copyblogger founder Brian Clark has been building businesses with online content marketing since 1998, before anyone used that term.

Brief History of Copyblogger Media
Copyblogger started as a simple one-man blog. Today, Copyblogger Media is a software and training organization with more than 115,000 unique customers — and it was all done with useful content, smart copywriting, and solid products and services.

No advertising. No venture capital. No outbound sales team.

Just $1,000 in seed cash and a whole lot of time and effort spent teaching others how to do online marketing that works. Every product we’ve released was conceived from the practical, real-world needs we see every day in our audience. Today we’re a profitable multi-million dollar company that’s growing fast.

Our mission has never changed: We’ll help you create the kind of audience-focused content that helps you reach your business goals.
