Your Writer's Website/Portfolio

Today, several fellow writers and I have been discussing writer's websites/portfolios.  This made me think, "hmmm, mine really needs to be updated."  So, I will spend the week completely overhauling my site.  How is your site?  Do you have a site?  If you have one, why not take a few minutes to look it over and update as needed.  If you do not have a site, what are you waiting for?  A writer's website/portfolio is one of the best ways to get discovered on the web.  It puts everything clients need to know about you in a neat little package.  I am going to work on mine over the next few days and it is going to be completely different in a good way.  Once it is done, I will post a link here and will talk about what I did to create it so that ya'll can take the information and get your site either revamped or started.

Tips on Fighting Against Copyright Infringement

As writers, we have our work stolen more often than a politician lies.  If you are new to writing, unfortunately, you will face this issue as well.  For the most part, I just let it go because a large majority of the thieving sites are so far down the list on search engines that it will not really hurt me.  However, there have been times where the stolen article outranked my original article, or the site stole so much of my work that something just has to be done. 

A fellow writer put together a phenomenal resource for fighting against those who are not playing fair.  If you want to know how to reclaim your work and tell the thieves that they just cannot take your hard work, check out this extensive resource: CLICK HERE.
