Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!

How’s everyone doing? I’m having such a good week!

Things have calmed down a little with my ‘work work’ a bit of breathing space again. It’s been great connecting with a few of you over Twitter (shout out to @Quinn94!). Love getting to know this community.

On Twitter and a few places, I’ve noticed a bunch more people getting active and staying fit. Gotta get that summer bod.. lol! I’ve been trying to get out for the occasional run every now and then. Remember to take time for yourself. 😊

Resource of the week

This whole self-improvement kick also got me thinking about how we’re always trying to become better writers.

Check out this pretty awesome guide for how to start (or continue) writing online. You can access the whole thing here. No email required.

• I think it's one of the best guides for digital writers

• The frameworks and super tactical layouts are things I’m going to use a more

• If you’re unsure of where to start, guides like this can be super useful! 

FYI - I’m not affiliated with these guys at all. I just love sharing this *free* content .

Also, remember that our supporters get access to an exclusive bonuses. Every job we've shared (over 800 opportunities!) and a list over 200 publications that pay!

Calls to Pitch

I try to ensure all the positions are well-paid, and if not, they’re helpful in some other way. Our readership varies from new writers to established writers, so some jobs are better for others.

I try to only show remote jobs, but sometimes allow odd interesting jobs to pass through.
