  1. You included the IWSG anthology contest! Thank you.
    I was going to take Monday off, but remembered a monthly hop and two people I’d promised to help. I can check blogs in the morning before heading out for the day.
    Have a great Labor Day!

  2. So many great links here, Elizabeth! Thanks, as ever. Interesting you’d include one about using pencils. There’s research that just the act of writing something with a pen or pencil helps us remember it and connect with it more. Hmmm….

  3. I liked the examples they showed in the Facebook covers. I finally got a good Facebook banner for my author/speaker site and it matches my other sites. And finally gave myself permission to put up a fun photo on my personal page. (My garden – I’m so proud of it.)

  4. Terrific Twitter links this week. I’m still reading them ( 2 hours later). Glad to see the #IWSG Contest included. Thanks for putting so much time and effort into this link round up. It’s always full of useful, resourceful tips that I would have missed if not for you.

  5. I found your site after seeing it as an example in the book Blogging for Writers. I’m so glad I checked it out. This post, especially, has so much I plan to check out. Of course, that also means it’s a distraction allowing me to procrastinate from what I should be doing.

    Thanks for sharing all these links! I’ll definitely be coming back to check out the other things you share.

    1. Wendy, thanks so much for coming by!

      Yes, there is enough each week for the links to become a time suck! Sometimes I’ll recommend that writers only search for the specific craft/industry info they need. The links are all collected on the WKB free search engine and you can search by topic: . :)
