Look Sharp — New Skills, New Habits, and a Snazzy New Design for Copyblogger


Hey, notice something a little different?

Copyblogger has a brand-new design, courtesy of our wonderful colleague, Rafal Tomal. Not only are we sporting a clean, new minimalist look, we’ve also added some nifty behind-the-scenes coding so we can make the site more dynamic and user-friendly.

As you might imagine, we’ve done a lot of testing, but there are still odd little errors that can make their way into any new site. If you spot one, just leave a comment or hit us up on Twitter. You’ll have our gratitude!

In addition to the new site excitement, we’ve got a new powerhouse (and nearly free) little resource for you that will help you build consistent habits to make your content better and work harder. You can learn more about it here.

Now that we’ve got that covered … let’s talk content!

On Monday, Stefanie Flaxman shared 10 modern proofreading tips to help save you from publishing embarrassing little mistakes.

On Tuesday, Loryn Thompson explored why the advice that “you are not your audience” can have a shadow side — and how to avoid the pitfalls it can lead you into.

On Wednesday, I talked a bit more about our new small but mighty resource, the Content Confidence Checklist, and why it’s well worth your time to pick this one up …

And over on Copyblogger FM, I chatted with Scott Ayres of Social Media Lab, who did some “social media mythbusting” with us. Freelance writers — check out what Scott has to say about the best content format for LinkedIn. I think you’ll find it intriguing.

That’s this week … next week, we’ll be taking Monday off for Labor Day, so we’ll see you with a fresh post from Stefanie Flaxman on Tuesday. For those who are heading into a longer weekend, enjoy!
