I had a blast putting this list together - all of my favorite articles on writing, content, inspiration, and creativity! Hope you enjoy!
You want to be the world's best online writer, a David Ogilvy of the blogs, a Shakespeare of the social media. Or maybe you just want to be good enough to get by on freelance writing. Where do you get your education? How do you improve? I've faced these same questions, and I still face these questions as I aim to keep improving as an online writer.

Here is an amazing insider view from +Kevan Lee  who recently joined us on how it feels like going through the Buffer application process and then the +Buffer  bootcamp.

If you ever wanted to get a true look behind the scenes at Buffer, here it is! 

http://open.bufferapp.com/inside-buffer-bootcamp/ 
Some call it a trial. Some call it a probationary period. We call it the Buffer Bootcamp.

I knew a lot of the beginner ones. But...

Number 23! Number 23 is going to make my life so much easier. I love WordPress, but switching hats and firing up Photoshop just for this is always a hassle.
