If you haven't a kind word to say against someone, don't say it at all. "Mr Goody Goody two-shoes" (but in my crazy travel book about my European adventures HERE,THERE and EVERYWHERE, you'll find out why I only had one!). Hard sometimes, when you are reportingrepparttar facts, as you saw them and want to market your work sometimes; because controversy always sells... like bad news headlines sell newspapers.

Most ofrepparttar 129898 above information is based on pure common-sense (what's that?) and using your discernment. However, many writers don't have an abundance ofrepparttar 129899 aforementioned qualities in making judgements.

A word (or two or three) of my advice... In writing followrepparttar 129900 following (sounds "funny" that!) creeds:

When in doubt about what course to take (not English III), just ask yourself this: If you wererepparttar 129901 author, would you like someone else copying your work, or saying 'those things' about you.

Use judicious judgement (note alliteration) and when in doubt, rather err onrepparttar 129902 side of caution.

Even if you have been badly hurt by someone inrepparttar 129903 past, don't be tempted to retaliate and take vengeance for "the sordid past" through your words. Everyone has made mistakes they may regret in life, so thinkrepparttar 129904 best of people. At least try!

Enough moralising and back to my original topic. A final few words to conclude onrepparttar 129905 subjects of plagiarism and defamation. Always write with ABSOLUTE HONESTY (from your particular perspective), in utmost GOOD FAITH and INTEGRITY... and asrepparttar 129906 proverb wisely advises:

Do unto others , as you would have them do unto you."

Then you CAN'T GO WRONG in your writing.

Phew! Finished this lesson in a hurry this morning, sitting out inrepparttar 129907 hot NZ sun. My business partner wanted it by 1 pm, because it's a long weekend. Another glorious day in Godzone. What paradise.

What a life as a writer!

(in case you want to have a look)

PR Web recommend adding a link back to them to add credibility to your web site - good idea, I think!

The Comitatus Group also offer a FREE press release service. Their web address is: http://www.comitatusgroup.com/pr/pr_save.asp

Other Press Release services we've used are: Emailwire.com: http://www.emailwire.com/. They are mainlyfor corporate businesses, but check them out. Also Xpress, who distribute news releases by e-mail. (Their address is news@xpresspress.com).

Lastly, John Crescione of eNewsRelease.com is very friendly and helpful with writing and distributing press releases.

We have no connection with these news distribution services, but have found them all to be effective in increasing "hits" after a news release.

Use press releases to getrepparttar word out about your web site, product or service. They DO WORK.

Lastly, I don't think you need to be a writer to write good press releases. (In fact, it may work against us, as we do tend to "waffle on" a bit and sometimes I don't write in sufficient "business-speak".) My advice is just write in your own "natural" style -repparttar 129895 one in which you feel MOST COMFORTABLE... as I've tried to do in this article.

Don't take life too seriously and have FUN writing your press releases.

Hope this may help you readers "out there" in cyberspace, as we at Eagle Productions and our associates learn something new about on-line and off-line promotion each day.

"Success is a PROCESS of sharing (knowledge, insights, wisdom and experiences) with others and not simply a matter of arriving at a destination."

Take pleasure inrepparttar 129896 journey.
