Around the Word

Fear not, we're back today with three new words of wisdom:
  • Copyblogger's Nathan Hangen rallies the writing troops to not just sell, but lead. Quit apologizing for knowing what you know and dare to be an expert -- the tribe will follow
  • Men with Pens shares some tips for being a good blog host to your guest posters -- don't be afraid to specify word count, preferred subjects, or level of originality. When it comes to blogging guidelines, strict standards are more likely to up the quality of contributions, not stifle authorial creativity
  • The Eloquent Woman tackles speakers' fear of back-row challengers by suggesting the speaker proactively bring their audience into the speech. Research who will be attending and use examples and slides that specifically speak to them -- after all, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
