Here are this week’s new articles from The Adventurous Writer – they range from writing author bios to overcoming infertility depression to weight loss tips for teens! Plus, below is my “what I’m reading” and book recommendation for the week.
First, a quip for writers:
“Failure is part of it. You will be rejected dozens and dozens of times. The best way to prepare for it is to have something else in the works by the time the rejection letter arrives. Invest your hope in the next project. Learning to cope with rejection is a good trait to develop.” – Po Bronson.
Learning to cope with rejection is a good trait for all people, not just writers. Bounce back and move forward, my friends! And, check out my newest articles…

What I’m Reading This Week – Book Recommendation
I’m reading Building Findable Websites: Web Standards SEO and Beyond by Aaron Walter, and think it’s the perfect balance between basic and technical information. He discusses everything from WordPress plugins to managing domain names – some of it is way too “computer program-y” for me, but most of it is accessible, practical, and helpful. He highlights best practices for creating websites and blogging, and explains the “how to” clearly. I like this book much better than Blogging for Dummies.
The best part is that Walter’s tips will help readers find your website or blog, and encourage them to return! Click the book cover for more info on Amazon.
