I have been wanting to blog about this since I found but have held off until the formal newsletter announcing the three best articles was out!
When How To Books ran a competition back in July for the best article that month I entered How to twitter: basics. I was delighted when it was accepted and it spurred me on to do some more writing in the social media arena. After that I wrote a further article on navigating twitter and planned to submit this to how to books. Shortly after finishing the article twitter announced some planned changes so I held off completing it until I had become familiar with the new version of twitter.
It was a rather happy co-incidence that How To Books announced they would be running monthly competitions after the success of the July competition. Having familiarised myself with the changes I re-wrote the article but with so many changes on twitter I decided to break it down into two articles. They are How to Navigate the New Twitter.com and Twitter: How To Edit Your Profile.
I viewed writing them as really good practice and I was very happy to learn they had been accepted. So imagine my delight when I got an email from Nikki Read informing me my article Twitter: How to Edit Your Profile had been selected as one of the three best articles.
I have a book proposal with them presently and this has been an excellent way to demonstrate my writing. I have some more articles planned to write up for them in the coming months and I recommend having a go.
