Going from having trouble writing your blog posts onward to where to sell your books, music or films all in one post
Want to know where you can sell your books, music, films or hand made crafts? Scroll down and start reading at "But, read on: this is even more important"
I love writing, but man o man, I hate editing!!
Maybe you lack confidence, maybe you think that you can't write as good as the other people online.
How would you like it if I told you there is an app available where you can test your writing before you even publish your post?
It is called the Hemingway Editor (FYI: this is not an affiliate link which means I get absolutely nothing for mentioning it to you, just another one of those things I love so much, I want you to know about)
Now, you should know by now, that I don't mention anything on my site if I didn't pay for it, or try it out myself.
You might say that I'm the spending guinea pig - I take the financial punch and you can harvest the rewards.
When I talk about spending, you start to wonder, "how much is this going to cost me?"
Great news, NOTHING - to test it out, but if you want to buy the desktop app, it will only cost you $9.99.

How will the Hemingway editor help you when writing your blog posts?
Want to try it out yourself? Click on the picture below (scroll down past the picture for instructions):
- Highlight your post you would like to edit, right click and "copy"
- Click on the picture above and go to the free online editor
- Highlight the part that starts with "Hemingway App makes your ......." up to the end of the post.
- Right click and paste your content
See what the Hemingway editor says about your post.
You can edit your post right there and copy and paste back into your blog.
How do you buy the Hemingway app?
If you want to buy the Hemingway app you must click on the green "Desktop app" button on the left
You will be taken to the following screen:
Is your computer running on Mac or Windows? Click on the button of the one you use and buy now.
Next screen: (I'm on Windows, so my image is for Windows, but I guess it will be similar for Mac)
Click on "buy this" and your off to your payment options. You can use Paypal or your credit/debit card.
You receive your download link and download the Hemingway editor to your computer.
What happens when you pay $9.99?
Why pay $9.99 when you can use it for free?
When you pay, you can use the editor without an internet connection, which means you can write your posts (or your book) offline with no interruptions.
You can do the same as you do in WordPress: link, highlight, use headings, etc.
When you are finished writing and editing, you go to your site, add new post and copy and paste your post written in the Hemingway editor.
The great news is that it doesn't add all kinds of funny signs as it would if you wrote it in Windows and used copy and paste.
Is there a downside? Yes, you can't add images (yet).
But, read on: this is even more important:
After you bought the editor, you can go to Gumroad, where you create your account.

You can "accept the 30 day challenge" by signing up for emails or you can work through the guides (the choice is yours) - left bottom under Not sure where to start?
Go through the editorials, build your products and start selling. (This is going to take some time, but in the end, is it not worth it?)
