You are a professional

I just like coffee...

  • Professionals proofread their words before they print, email, message, or post them.
  • Professionals don’t use high falutin vocabulary to sound smart.
  • Professionals spell check and grammar check their work.
  • Professionals use 5+ sentence paragraphs:
    • Main idea
    • Detail #1
    • Detail #2
    • Detail #3
    • Conclusion
  • Professionals have an eye forward. They are preparing for their futures in higher education, the workforce, as engaged citizens, or all of those roles.
  • Professionals practice the highest level of etiquette at all times both offline, online, and inworld. They are courteous, deferential, and encouraging to others.
  • Professionals collaborate with colleagues on a global scale. They are at home with synchronous as well as asynchronous communications.

Serious Writers are Read

This post was originally written for middle school students writing blog posts way back in 2006...


How to get other people to take your writing seriously and read what you write:
  • Be concise
    • Paragraphs - use 'em
    • Five paragraphs max
    • Say what you are going to say, say it, then say what you have said
  • Images
    • Include an eye-catching thematic pic when you can
  • Include hyperlinks
    • plain URLs waste people's time (no dead links - stink like fish)
    • hyperlinks support your writing
  • Cite sources
    • use APA format to reference sources at the end of your post
  • Technorati Tags (or labels or hashtags)
    • Use at least three tags
    • Spaces in a tag make two tags - no spaces
    • Use the tag generator
    • Don't forget to ping
  • Check the deep web for information on your topic
  • Academic writing is not letter writing
    • No closing or signature
    • Pronouns agree
    • Verbs agree

Fashionably Late New Year's Resolutions for 2017


My fashionably late resolutions  


  1. Read a book just for pleasure every month, while turning off all social media, cell phones, and ignoring flares.
  2. Earn (finally) that degree.
  3. Spend time with Nik everyday.  
That's it. Those are three manageable goals which don't depend on the actions of other people. So my question is now, what are YOUR resolutions?
