Not listed? Well you are now.
Twitter copywriting colleagues: If you’re not listed on this roster, very likely you can blame Twitter’s “list” functionality that displays in real time only. That means if you weren’t tweeting at exactly the same time I was compiling this post, I didn’t see you. Let’s make it right.
Just leave your name and blog info in the comments. I’ll list you in a More Great Copywriters Roster, providing…
- You blog about copywriting or content creation and
- I follow you on Twitter.
