Have you ever wondered if people even care about your writing?
You pour out your heart and soul, but sometimes that feels like shouting your words down a bottomless abyss.
You know you have a world of knowledge to pass on – but you have no idea how to wrap it into an exciting package your readers will love.

You choose when to write, what to write, and how to write it.

And that’s why, as the holiday weekend approaches in the US, we’re delighted to showcase a collection of outstanding posts created by bloggers who truly embrace that spirit of independence by sharing their ideas, on their terms, with a waiting world.

But regardless of where you’d place yourself on that spectrum – or even if you’re only now thinking of launching a blog – you’ll find plenty here to motivate and inspire you. More
