I have a guilty little secret. I’ve found some great new writing blogs from fellow writers–but instead of sharing them with you, I’ve selfishly kept them to myself.
Well, today it’s time to pay it forward and share some of those writing resources.
I’m featuring a list of some of the blogs that I’ve enjoyed recently, plus a little bit about each blogger.
In no particular order, here are some writing blogs you may wish to check out:
- Freelance Writing Dreams–This blog is a new project of writer Samantha Gluck. Already it promises to be one of the best sources of writing information out there. I met Samantha through Twitter, but quickly she evolved to a friend. She’s taken part in one my mini-coaching seminars, and we’ve exchanged several emails.
- WagnerWrites–Claire Wagner provides good, solid writing advice on her blog. She also does a great job of covering social media and other relevant topics. I honestly don’t remember exactly how I met Claire–it seems that we’ve been in touch through social media for quite a while. We probably met through Twitter, though.
- The Work At Home Woman–Although Holly Hanna’s blog is directed to any freelancer who works from home, most freelance writers should also find the topics here helpful. Holly contacted me by email a few months ago about a product that she wanted me to try and we’ve stayed in touch via social media ever since.
- Freelance Writers’ Blog–This blog is from a fairly new contact. I met Harleena Singh through Google Plus, and her interesting shares and comments drew me to her blog. Harleena’s blog includes some topics that freelance writers typically debate as well as some practical informative posts. It’s definitely worth a read.
- Simply Stated Business–What can I say about Cathy Miller’s blog, except that she taught me what QR codes are (and I’ve been noticing them everywhere ever since). That’s the sort of helpful information that you’ll find on her blog. Cathy’s another social media friend that I’ve been in contact with for quite a while–so long, in fact, that I’m not sure exactly where we met.
One of the great things about freelance writing is that there is a huge writing community out there to connect with. These blogs represent just a few members of that writing community. If you’d like to connect to the writing community yourself, a great way to do that is by leaving comments on other writer’s blogs. (You can start by leaving a comment on this post.)
In fact, one of the early features of this blog was a weekly review of various writing blogs. In retrospect, I think those reviews helped connect me to the online writing community more quickly than I otherwise would have gotten connected. I’ve since stopped publishing the weekly reviews, but you can view the first year’s worth of writing blogs that I reviewed here. (A few have been discontinued, but most still exist.)
Anyway, I’ve shared some of my favorite blogs from fellow writers. In the future, I plan to share more writing blogs (along with other great content).
In the meantime, what are your favorite writing blogs?
