Designed: How to Write A Better Blog Post


My sister-in-law knows how to get stuff DONE. She edits. She writes. She actually writes very well. We were talking about how she needed to write a book.

Three days later she sent me her book.


Seriously? It’s amazing. Also, her tutorials (i.e. chapters) for writing a better blog post are pretty awesome. She gives me actionable items that I can actually use to make my writing better. It’s not like I follow them all the time, you read this blog, but when I do I feel more confident about my writing.


I formatted, designed and added my two cents on formatting for blog posts. It’s a must-not miss. The book is available for digital download in my shop.

In other news, the calligraphy workshop was a hit! I’m hosting a second lecture-style workshop tomorrow at a friend’s design office in Redwood City. For details and sign up, click here.
