    One of the oldest resources I can remember:
    Welcome to the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL)
    Purdue Online Writing Lab.
    It serves as a good reference for writing.

    I am running this now on one of my articles. I like this checker but I am a little confused!

    Total Matched Phrases / Total Submitted 0% (0/46)

    I don't grasp the 46. Is that similar articles Google suspected but they were not a match?

    I hired these guys to write my site. They concentrate on SEO content writing. I also like to use a English Style Manual when I can-

    Maybe you didn't notice, but we have an entire thread devoted to grammar.

    Phrases.org is a good site, but it isn't a free resource. I've also found that that phrases.net and the idioms section of the free dictionary also provide the inspiration I need to come up with an interesting phrase.

    Thanks for the share Shyflower! I generally get my inspiration from my own experience combined with what I read on forums.
    Forums are a great source of potential inspiration, at least in my main niche which is pets, everything from aquarium fish to dogs and cats.
    I've foud that every time I was lacking inspiration, visiting a related forum would do the trick.

    Thanks for these useful links
    When I want to find synonymous, I just use... a Book.
    I also find informations for my post on PRWeb, a press realease website.
    To complete my knowledge, I use Wikipedia and Britannica.
    And to perfekt my writing style: relevantrhetoric and google-translate (yes, I am not a native speaker ).

    You might want to try thesaurus.com. It will save you a lot of time as it is much quicker than paging through a book.

    Good idea. That is actually one of the purposes of press release sites. The web would be a much better place if bloggers harvested press release information instead of copy/pasting other blogs. Also consider, following up an interesting press release by contacting the business for further details about their news or visiting their site (if it's web news) to see it first hand. That's one of the things that separates real journalists from bloggers.

    It's always great to see someone introduce a new resource here. Thanks for relevant rhetoric. That's one I hadn't heard of before.

    Oh that list is too old for you and now most of them does not work properly, so it should be updated but I think there is no bright future in content writing.

    so every person in the world that has a web blog or web site should, what, just give up because creating content has no bright future?

    I think that choosing the right content makes the difference between success and failure on the internet. Thanks for sharing those links, writing powerful articles or web content is not easy (especially if you are not a writer ) and having some extra resources that help you on that is always appreciated.

    I am from India, and I am planing to make a career shift and get into writing, I am interested in Article writing, Content writing.

    But as I do not have any writing experience I am finding it difficult to get a full time job.

    I would like to know are there any resources on the web, where we can write, practice and acquire knowledge on various topics associated with writing, like English, writing, SEO and such other necessary disciplines of knowledge


    I would really appreciate discussion on this topic

    thanks in advance.

    This thread as well as many others are full of writer and web-content resources. Please do a search of our Web Content area and if you have specific questions, ask them in a new thread. This particular thread is for listing resources that writers use. While some of them may be out dated, many are still valid and will help you get started.

    Hello Shyflower..Such a fantastic thread.
    I use Copyscape and Citation Syles very often and I found these two crucial for writing a good content. Sometimes, even the things written by me show some percentage of citation and that is where this tool help me to make my content citation free. The other tools also seems to be highly beneficial.
