This probably won’t come as a surprise to most of our remaining subscribers, but Social Realist (formerly NakedPR) is officially retired. I wanted to make that announcement for a few reasons:
- I still receive guest post requests here even though there haven’t been updates in quite some time. I do not accept them for this site, and that will not change.
- Some of the more evergreen content here at Social Realist will be moved to the social media section of my small business blog. If you find it linked here, it should automatically redirect you to the post’s new home. If you’re linking to individual posts from your own site or blog, you might opt to update the links. That content will most likely be moved later today, although it will roll out gradually on the site over the course of the week.
- I wanted to let you know where I’m spending my time these days for those who have an interest. I primarily blog about writing and blogging on my freelance writing blog. I talk about writing from the business perspective on my business writing blog. I’m also launching a new blog on blogging early next week called Writing for Bloggers. There are already several posts if you want to check them out. That blog is about building better blogs through better writing. I write about small business (and will write about social media) at BizAmmo.com as mentioned above. I, and other contributors, may also discuss social media as it applies to online learning at the Online Learning hub blog. I’m also relaunching a blog on indie publishing if you have an interest in writing books and e-books. And of course you can still find me on Twitter @queryfreewriter. While I write for a number of other sites, those are the primary places you’ll find me moving forward now that Social Realist is retired with no plans to bring it back.
- On a side note, I’m currently working on a site merger that will combine my freelance writing, indie publishing, and blogging websites into a new Web property called All Indie Writers. The new site is scheduled to launch late spring or early summer.
