I sat down to write a blog entry promoting an article compiling 150 resources for writers that cover a wide range of subjects and problems when I realized that I didn’t know how to write a blog entry. This is coming from the student who recently agreed to spend her three-month study abroad program writing a blog for her university’s home page. I poked around various webpages a bit, going through the archives of this blog and reading previous entries to get a feel for what was expected of me, when I realized that I was absolutely and completely oblivious. I looked at the article I’m supposed to be promoting, and lo and behold, the very first link under the very first topic heading led me to a source telling me how to write an acceptable blog post. Problem solved.

So it is with genuine appreciation that I commend this snippet of the Internet to my readers: “150 Resources to Help You Write Better, Faster, and More Persuasively,” as compiled by Claire Morgan. Basically, it’s a page with a lot of links to a lot of resources to help you with your writing. It’s organized into subsections depending on subject so you don’t have to dig through a pile of ambiguous hyperlinks until you bump into something useful, and the resources vary from very formal (Creative Commons, dealing with copyright and licensing) to informal (Wikipedia, because let’s face it, we all use it); from literary (American Society for the History of Rhetoric) to casual (Poetry.com, for those beginning to dabble in writing and who want some quick feedback). There’s a lot available here, and it covers a wide range of writerly needs. So whether you’re a well-seasoned pro whose kryptonite is “its” versus “it’s” or “lie” versus “lay,” a college student trying not to get kicked out of school for plagiarism because of citation issues, or someone who happened to scribble a poem down one day and kind of would like to know what this whole writing thing is about, there will be something for you here.
