Putting the World Write

A friend of mine has just started a new site for writing and blogging advice: www.netwriting.co.uk.

A prolific writer, he turns out articles at the rate I write paragraphs, putting words on the page faster than a competitive road cyclist cycles—his main, off-line pursuit. Ok, so that last analogy was a little forced, but I’m sure I’ll learn a better turn of phrase by reading his very instructive, new blog.

Only a week old, NetWriting is already shaping to be invaluable resource for bloggers and online writers, possessing a wealth of tips to increase a site’s search engine ranking and readership.

To the credit of this profuse writer, he is not satisfied with his current, super-human standard, and has pledged publicly to improve his own writing, as stated on his site:

“I am very interested in learning grammar and proper punctuation. I do not claim to be an expert – far from it! But quite often, to learn about something, it is helpful to write on the subject for yourself.”

Which is eminently practical, and also broad-minded, seeing as he is probably long over getting notes from me about missing commas and unwieldy sentences…

    Thanks for providing this site in your feed, I have been checking it out. I wrote a poem about my hits in the last week or so. It was fun to think of who was looking at my blog.

    One day I’ll be a famous blogger like you Alf, and maybe even half a poet as well 😉

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the write up and leaving comments on the new blog.

    I am grateful when people take the time to point out grammatical errors, I usually try to amend them.
