A Few More Links While I Try to Get My Act Together

So I have every intention of posting some industry-related posts, but I am fighting a losing battle with my in-box and replying to emails right now. So while I attempt to swim upstream, here are a few more Q/As I did as of late. Actually, though, now that I think of it, some of them have industry-related answers, so maybe I'm not a total disappointment!

Oh, also, I know that there are some new readers here who are anxious for how-to-break-in tips. Before I get into that, please do search the archives, and I think you'll find lots of good info. Not that I'm averse to discussing this again, but just to point you in the right direction...

Anyway, a few good links:

I will show you why your audience wants to know How to be a Socialite.
Flake or Philanthropist?
• Now more than ever there are people in need. Volunteerism is crucial.
• Plus, giving back to charity makes people feel amazing about themselves.
• And who doesn't like a party where the money goes to a non profit?
I will show your audience 10 ways to be a socialite in an hour a week.
It's human nature to want to help others.
I am the Socialite expert on NBC40 during the today show.
A women's place is on the social ladder.

I know you mentioned you are busy, but I'm interested in your thoughts on the recent upturn in freelance writing opportunities (not even sure if you read your comments). I just found some interesting trends (http://www.odesk.com/trends/Tech%20Writer) that show writing jobs are up, which I find fascinating given the state of the economy right now. Do you think this is accurate? I'm curious to know what published writers think about this. Thanks!
