We Like Special Announcements. Here are Three.

Special announcements are good. Everyone needs special announcements from time to time, right? Well, I have three for you today.

Top Ten Blogs for Writers Finalists

The 4th annual Top Ten Blogs for Writers contest is now closed for submissions, and the list of finalists has been posted.

Nearly 300 blogs were nominated, and we’re honored to have made it to the list of finalists. We’re ready for the next stage, too, where finalist blogs are analyzed and winners selected based on some pretty tough criteria.

Whew. It’s a little nerve-wracking!

In Which Attempt to Clear Up Rumors

So recently, someone went and spread rumors about Taylor and an ebook. I’m stuck trying to defend my honor and dispel this vicious gossip. I don’t know who started it all, but when I find out, that person and I are going to have words.

Possibly even in French.

I really think it might be an impossible task, though. I mean, how can a writer who writes really good ebooks who works with another writer who writes equally-good ebooks possibly manage to convince the whole blogosphere that there are no ebooks on writing for the web being written around here?

It’s enough to make a grown man cry.

Want to Be King of the Castle?

I recently told you all about the 2009 Copywriting Success Summit. I think it’s a valuable course that can give a great deal of beginning or struggling writers a leg up to success.

No, really. I’m not kidding.

And the info is offered by some seriously successful writers that you want to listen to. Yes, really.

You don’t have to leave home. It’s all online. You don’t have to worry about value. These are top-name leaders, here. You don’t have to worry about a return on investment – if you apply all the tips and tricks you’ll learn in the Summit, you’ll make the price of the course back easily, and with plenty to spare.

And the price of the course? It’s basically less buying a cup of coffee at McDonalds every day for the next year. Only the Summit lets you be able to afford Starbucks.

The discount for the Summit expires next week, which means you have less than 7 days to quit waffling around, whining about low rates and no work. Jet yourself into the seat of success.

And even if you have no freakin’ interest in Starbucks every day, at least go get the free gift for copywriters. ‘Cuz it’s free. Sheesh.

That’s the end of my special announcements for this week, folks! Enjoy!
