A Few Exciting Announcements

Hello, hello!

Just warning you that it may be quiet around here the rest of this week, but to make up for it, I have three exciting announcements to share.

1. I joined Twitter on Friday, so please find me at @melissatydell and let's connect on yet another social media platform :)  I'm still getting the hang of things, but it's fascinating to see what everyone is up to in the Twitter-verse.

2. Beginning next Tuesday, I'm starting my FIRST guest post series called "Share Your Story." 

I'm inviting peoplewriters as well as those who don't consider themselves to be writersto contribute a short inspirational post.  Each post will be a sort of short personal essay, sharing a piece of the guest blogger's "story" by telling about a specific time in his/her life.

Possible themes:
Overcome a challenge or difficult time
Learned a lesson
Taken a leap of faith
Discovered something new
Changed your mind
Seen something/someone differently
Stood up for yourself/something you believe in
Achieved a goal

As a personal mission and as a part of my consulting & coaching services, I want to show people that writing doesn't need to be intimidating. To that end, the content of the guest series is meant to inspire, but I hope that the form will inspire as well.

I have some amazing bloggers lined up for the first few weeks, but if you'd like to contribute, feel free to shoot me an email at inspirationandroughdrafts [at] gmail [dot] com.

3. Remember that survey I asked you all to fill out?  First of all, a big THANK YOU to those who completed the survey (and if you haven't yet, it's currently still open!).

I don't want you to think I've forgotten about the e-newsletter series... because the truth is I've been working on that little project behind the scenes and I'm very excited about how it's evolved.  More to come on that front in the next couple weeks!

...Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.


  1. Oh, so exciting.
    I am looking forward to the guest series and the newsletter. It would be nice to learn from you...one freelancer to another.

    BTW, I am going to follow you on twitter in a sec...follow back @jostwrite.

    All the best!

  2. I didn't get to fill the survey out yet but I just noticed that it's still open so I'll get on that right now.
    Love and Whimsy


I'd love to hear from you!
