I wrote a post recently on social media strategy, though I fully admit I'm feeling a decided pull towards deleting some social accounts and reducing the amount of exposure I have online. Perhaps this is only applicable as a private person and not for a business. I don't really know. But, if you're still gung ho on social media, here's the post for you.
You may already use social media or are just starting. Either way, you'll improve by understanding how to create a social media strategy + a free template.

The pen is mightier than the sword, particularly when activated during a small-town city council meeting. It was several years ago when some friends had asked me to come and take notes at a public meeting. This might seem an odd request, since I lived…

There are cold bloods, warm bloods, and hot bloods. The cold bloods get the job done, steady and faithful, without the flash. They take up a lot of space; they’re …

Mary Worth is a comic strip I’ve been aware of, but never took the time to appreciate. How could it compete with Garfield or Dilbert? I would think to myself, skipping over the comic which required knowledge of a running story line in favor of a one-strip joke from others in the paper. That is, …

How I Work As A #Freelance  Writer

The Planner

1. I use paper first. Writing on paper helps me understand and remember better than pure digital organizational tools.

2. I color code my weekly planner using highlighters. One color for business upkeep (invoicing, taxes, etc.), one color for a specific and prolific client, and one color for other clients. Since I also use my planner for non-client dates and notes, this helps visually show if my day is work or personal focused.

3. Each to-do task gets a dash in front. When I complete it, I put a check mark on the task. If I fail to get the task done by the end of the week, I circle it, and then add it to the next week with a dash. If the task is no longer relevant or I don't have to do it, I put an X on the dash.

Online Tools

1. I rely a lot on Trello. It has both a calendar view as well as a project-based view. Since I work in Google Docs for most of my writing, I link those docs to the task in Trello. Makes it very easy to get organized and work based in Trello.

2. I use Google Docs for my writing. Great sharing and commenting, plus the research tools and a lot of handy Add Ons that make it one of the best online word processing tools.

3. I use Toggl for tracking my time. It integrates with Google Docs and Trello, plus has a handy mobile phone app that makes it easy to start a time tracker at any moment and add details later.

4. I use Wave Accounting for my invoicing. Free/low cost, and it has a lot of nice features. Perfect for small business and freelancers.
