Don’t you love how just when you struggle with something you find a good resource? Weblog writing and maintenance runs in cycles for me. It can be real work, or it can be easy peasy. Smooth sailing, providing well reasoned and insightful content, a smidge entertaining (and maybe a little funny) is my goal. But quality and integrity is really important to me. I do write more for me, glancing at the numbers on a regular basis to keep me based in the reality of who stops by to read “All things.”
I’m always glad to find resources and helps, so I thought I’d gather them together for us to use, and be encouraged by the other smart folks on the internets.

How to Use a Writing Frame by Chris Brogan – I’ve followed and read Chris Brogan probably the longest I’ve followed anyone. He’s got to be one of the greatest nutshell writers in history.

This is just a start. I’ll be adding to this list. Share your own favorite resources and feel free to share mine.
Here’s a late addition. I added “ViewTheStory” to my blog last week. See, it’s over in the side bar. I’ve always wanted a witness type link. This is a swell and customized link, a good addition for any Christian blogger. Unless of course you are good at creating your own…then share please.
Pioneer Woman does everything I’d really like to do with my blog if I lived in my imaginary world and was half that interesting. Her blog is amazing.
