Blogging Resources: Business and Professional Resources and References for Bloggers and Writers

Blog Resources by Lorelle on WordPressAs part of my ongoing series on blog resources, so far I’ve covered Blogging Resources and Sources to Help You Blog, Blog Resources for English Language and Blog Writing, and Blog Resources: Researching the Research, Finding the Facts, and Seeking Supporting Evidence. Today, I’m offering the resources I use for business and professional sources of information to help me blog and write.

Blogging is writing and while the debate over whether or not a blogger can be considered a journalist and accorded the same rights, a blogger is a writer and self-publisher, thus covered by many of the laws and guides in place for writers.

There are a ton of resources for writers and the business of writing. I’ve included just the tip of the iceberg of sites that have helped my writing and blogging business.

Business Help and Resources

Business of Blogging graphic copyright Lorelle VanFossenWhether blogger, writer, podcaster, or vblogger, if your business is on the web, it is still a business. The following are some online business resources I use and reference in my articles.

Online Tools and Resources for Online Workers

I’ve found a variety of online tools and resources to help the online worker over the years, including articles that list tons of resources to help you track down the tool that works for you. Not every online tool will work for you, so test them out to see which one is the right one for your needs. These are some of the articles I’ve bookmarked and keep returning to for inspiration and the online tools needed for blogging today.

Bloggers and Blogs on Blogging and Blogging as a Business

bloggers on business graphic copyright Lorelle VanFossenWhen I started , few were “blogging on blogging” and now, it’s a huge industry of bloggers.

I track a lot of blogs that cover the business of blogging, but recommend few as many are scattered all over the place with content, in it for the money and not the expertise, and often offer out-dated or “black hat” suggestions, so I stick to the sites which offer consistent content over years, not months, as my serious online resources.

Here are a few of the blogs on blogging and related subjects I track in my feed reader so I can keep up with the news and business of blogging.

Lorelle’s Blogging References and Resources

Over the years, I’ve created my own lists of blogging references and resouces that help me blog. I refer to these often in the articles I write, so I like having them all collected together for easy reference.

    Thanks, Lorelle — This information is invaluable and I’m sure took a lot of time to research. I’m starting up another Website and will refer to your post often for these links.

    I started reading the Free Articulator for great material on writing, and the arts in general.
