    Thanks for the great “News You Can Use”. I just registered for CopyBlogger and I would have never know about it if you hadn’t shared it on you blog! I am really working hard to make sure my books don’t end up in someone’s Tsundoku pile! :~D

    Like Marci, I’m grateful for the info about my.copyblogger.com. I’ve followed them for years and they are a tremendous source of helpful information about blogging and content writing. It’s nice to see they’ve grouped all their major articles in one easily accessible location. I will share this with my peeps, too.

    Oh, no! Tsundoku – that describes me.

    I intend to read the books I buy and do read some, but too many are sitting in my “to be read” pile.

    I think, though, that I’ve finally learning my lesson to read more and buy less.
