Today’s Shoutout Sunday is dipping back into the archives a little bit. To be honest, I didn’t really find any new articles written in the past week that I wanted to share with you (except the last link to Jenny’s post), but the links below will take you to a few glorious, inspiring posts that will help you be a better blogger, writer, and planner!

25 Blogging Tips for Newbies and Veterans – These tips from Jeff Goins are spectacular. Short sentences DO win, and word vomit should be avoided at all costs. This article is pure gold for new bloggers.

How to Personalize Your Blog in Three Easy Steps – I have read every single post on Jenny Bravo’s wonderful blog, and I recommend you do the same. The second step in this particular post talks about something that Jenny does perfectly: talk to your readers like they are your friends, and do so in your voice. That’s what will bring people back to your blog!
