Cognitive Connection: March 12

Cognitive Connection. Thinking. Image courtesy of stock.xchng®This week’s reading list is a little smaller than normal. Several bloggers I regularly read have been somewhat quiet the last seven days. It could be spring break time for many or perhaps a sign of busy writers. I’ve been keeping my mind—and fingers—busy with several projects this week, including website copy, an email campaign and several bios. Although this year didn’t start out the way I wanted, it’s definitely picking up. I still have high hopes for 2010.

On with the reading!

  • Speaking of guest blogging, I still a few a few more lined up for you in the next several weeks. You’re in for a delight! If you have ideas for a guest post for my blog or would like to have me pen a post for your site, email me at jesakalong(at) Please put “guest post” in the subject line.
  • Copywriter maps resume. I heard about this clever idea as the link made its way through Twitter. You should definitely check this out. A copywriter maps all the locations listed on his resume, along with some fun commentary. Now that’s a new way to approach your resume.
  • FreelanceSwitch 5 Ways to Regain Your Creative Joy One thing I really like about Seth Simonds’s post is that he offers specific tips for copywriters, consultants and designers. No matter what you do in your business, this blog piece has ideas to help you get your mojo back.

Your turn. Any must-reads from this week? Any articles or blog posts that you’d like to share with your fellow readers here? Please share in the comments.

  1. You know what, Alexandra? I’m not exactly sure what makes one blog an “A-lister” and not another. Of course, I’m assuming traffic and name recognition, like ProBlogger, Copyblogger and Men with Pens. But who identified them as an A-list blog? You just inspired me to do a little research!

  2. Thanks for all these suggestions, Jesaka. You always provide so much information. I feel I could spend hours reading it all, and thinking about it, if I had that time. I have already done two guest posts on other people’s blogs, which was fun, and increased traffic somewhat. Another thing I have been intending to do is check out more A-list blogs. This may be a stupid question but can you explain exactly what an A-list blog is?

    I read an amazing post last week, March 2, at Mothering Outside the Lines, called “Small Acts of Kindness.”

  3. Hi Jesaka,

    Thanks for including my FSW article in your round up. I enjoyed writing it and was thrilled to see that a lot of freelancers took comfort in knowing they weren’t the only one struggling to stay grinny through the dreary days of work!

    Have a great weekend!
