BONUS: If you want to learn how to write ridiculously great content for any website, we created a resource called Writing Best Practices that can be applied to any website, not just our own.

It includes best practices, tools, and links to resources and further reading from the best experts on content writing.

The goal was to make anyone, first timer or a seasoned pro, a better writer for the web as a whole and not just a better writer for BeSurvival.
