This #MondayMashup contains some content writing tips, a guide on email automation, some freebie graphics and cheat sheets, and various SEO tips.
#MondayMashup is a series that is intended to round up somewhat recent posts that I find that you should read. It’s important as a blogger to keep up in your niche. I have to read and research quite a bit to keep up. However, you may not have that type of time in your schedule, so I’ve snagged a few links from around the blogosphere about blogging, social media, SEO, and web design. I hope they help.
