  1. This is a wonderful set of resources, Colleen! I’ve saved it for future use. Do you happen to know if previous blog posts count as being ‘published’? I was wondering about sending off a few of my own favorites but, if a blog post counts as ‘previously published,’ I might have to wait until the muse strikes again! ♥

  2. Wonderful info to share. I never tried to have anything published before. I also wondered if publishing on a blog counts as publising. My blog used to be full of personal essays and I pulled them all. Maybe its time to dust them off and tweak them. 🙂
