Writer’s Tips – Great Resources for #Bloggers and #Authors

For this edition of Writer’s Tips, I came across some informative reads for more free images, an interesting concept – newsletter swap, tips and tools for bloggers, themes for your blog that actually work with Gutenberg, getting paid for writing, and some great additional links for writers. I hope you find them useful.

Nicholas Rossis shares about newsletter swaps are very trendy right now, especially among authors of similar genres. This is because they have three big advantages over traditional promos:






42 FREE themes that play nice with the new Gutenberg editor by Hugh Roberts





Doris Heilmann has an extensive list of links where you can get paid for your writing




Staci Troilo has a wonderful post this week out on writer’s inspiration and some fabulous links for writers






Everything from web hosting, to plugins and themes, Natalie Ducey Smith has a smorgasbord of goodies in this post for bloggers.





Happy birthday to me

  1. You had me at free images, but the paid writing gigs one didn’t hurt either. Thank you–and happy birthday. You look amazing for someone who’s 114 (if we believe Facebook, anyway πŸ˜€ )


    1. LOLOL, thanks so much Nicholas. I had me at the writing gigs too, lol! And thank you for the lovely compliment. I must write a book now on how to stay young even at 114 LOLOL. πŸ™‚ x


  2. Debby, thank you so much for collating these and perfect timing for me! I’m in the process of (trying) creating a new website. Heading over to read some of these, Hugh’s post is first!


  3. Thanks so much for including a link to a recent post of mine, Debby.

    And a very Happy Birthday to you. I will raise a glass (or two) to you this weekend. πŸ₯‚

    Have a lovely day.
    xx πŸŽ‚πŸΎ


    1. My pleasure Hugh. Always happy to share useful info for our community. πŸ™‚ And thanks for the lovely wishes. Cheers my friend! ❀ xx πŸ₯‚


  4. Happy birthday Debby and I know you have some great celebrations planned… enjoy.. thanks for the links, the free photo links are particularly useful.



  5. Very useful tips, Deb! As I work on my fitness book, I’m paying more attention to use of images. Of course I take most of my own, but I use Unsplash as my favorite for any image. I also use unsplash for using images on my lecture powerpoints, because once they appear on the web, digital copyright infringement may be an issue. Glad you included Hugh’s list of Gutenberg friendly themes, I missed that post.


    1. Thanks for adding to the conversation Ter. I know there are many image sites available, but to be honest, I basically always use Pixabay because there are no copyright issues at all and no attribution required too! There is an abundance to choose from there. πŸ™‚ Hope you’re on the mend! πŸ™‚ x


  6. Great resources there, Debby. Thank you. Some I have read before, others I’ve bookmarked.
    Happy birthday, Gemini Girl. Have a wonderful birthday week and month! xx


  7. Happy belated birthday, Deb! Hope it was wonderful for you!
    thanks for sharing these links. It’s always nice to discover more information and tips. Blogging is a whole animal aside from our book/manuscript writing.


  8. Happy belated birthday!! As a non-fan of Gutenberg, I’m curious about the themes and how they operate. I love the idea of a newsletter swap. I wonder how that works…hmmm…thanks for the links!


    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes Kate. And I’m with you on Gutenberg. If you’re well versed in ‘backdoor’ WP, you can try out themes to see how they look. I personally, don’t touch that stuff, lol πŸ™‚
