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.
