For the longest time, I avoided LinkedIn. Invitations to join came, and I ignored them. I wasn’t convinced it was a worthwhile site.

What would I get from joining? Would it help my career in any way? Would it connect me to the right people? Or would it be nothing but a colossal waste of time?

Only recently did I decide to plug in and see what happens. And while I haven’t secured any jobs from LinkedIn, I’m starting to see its merit as a professional networking site.

For me, the best part about LinkedIn are the groups. I’ve joined a number of writing groups including Ghostwriters Worldwide and I’m enjoying taking part in some of the discussions. In addition to learning how others manage the business of writing, I get to share my own expertise.

Being active in a LinkedIn ghostwriting group is a great way to discover tips and tricks of the trade, see what other ghosts struggle with,  and offer a piece of advice now and then.

Based on my limited but growing experience with LinkedIn, I’d say that yes, it can be a useful site for ghostwriters, especially as a means to connect with others and share our knowledge.

For a profession as isolated as ghostwriting, being part of a professional network can help all of us grow by leaps and bounds.

To your success,

I found this terrific interview with ghostwriter Bob Olson:

Bob Olson Interview

In addition to being a ghostwriter, Bob is editor of OfSpirit.com.

It never ceases to amaze me that every writer establishes his or her own path.

There is no “one way” to becoming a ghostwriter … there are thousands of ways!

What will you do today to take a step toward your dream career?

All the best,

I want to share with you a resource that’s as yummy as it sounds: the Morning Coffee Newsletter.

Sign up with them, and every Tuesday morning you’ll receive in your inbox a list of freelance writing opportunities across the nation. Some are location-specific, others are work-from-home.

Job posts for freelance writers, editors, copywriters, bloggers, proofreaders, tech writers and transcribers are featured regularly. Occasionally an ad appears for a ghostwriter. I’ve seen translator positions, too.

To sign up, go here: Morning Coffee

I like this newsletter, and I don’t even drink coffee — though I love its comforting aroma. I’m a tea drinker myself.

Happy writing, my fellow ghosts!

Just because you’re a ghostwriter who creates content for others doesn’t mean you can’t write your own stuff, too.

Here’s an article I recently wrote about a subject I’m passionate about: being a vegetarian. Check it out.

DOING VEGETARIAN RIGHT

In fact, as a ghostwriter you’ll want to write your own pieces as often as you can because you can share these freely with the world. When it comes to your ghostwritten material, you typically have to keep it confidential. Your client will require this.

Enjoy your day,

It may sound like a cliche, but it’s true:

There’s never been a better time to be a ghostwriter.

Thanks to the Internet, it’s easier than ever to find and connect with clients.

And because so many people, from doctors to florists, and from limo providers to motivational speakers, want to be known as experts in their niches — why not? — the demand for capable ghostwriters who can produce credible books and other material is high.

Welcome to Ghostwriting Plus. I’ll be adding articles, thoughts, interviews, and other worthwhile stuff here from time to time.

Thanks for stopping by — stay tuned because I’ll have plenty more soon.

All the best to you,
