Top Blogs for Writers That I Enjoy

In honor of “blogs that I enjoy” day via the May 2010 Blogathon, here’s my list. I read many writing blogs, but these are the ones that I go to for information and answers to any literary/writing questions that I may have. Please note that these blogs are in no particular order.

Enjoy.

Rachelle Gardner’s blog: “cba-ramblings” is a blog by literary agent Rachelle Gardner. On it, Rachelle provides her readers with not only wonderful insight into the world of publishing but also tips as to what literary agents are looking for.

BookEnds, LLC: BookEnds is a literary agency. Their blog quenches my thirst for all things literary. I enjoy that they often “tell it like it is” in the literary world.

The Creative Penn: Joanna Penn’s blog is always a joy to read. She offers practical and smart advice for those looking to publish both online and off. I feel that Joanna really wants to help writers, and I appreciate that.

The Savvy Book Marketer: Dana Lynn Smith’s blog offers great advice for authors and bloggers in the areas of all things savvy. She often has guest bloggers that post resourceful information.

Nonfiction Ink: Laura Cross’s blog is filled with great information on writing, marketing, and writing/publishing resources.

There Are No Rules: Jane Friedman’s blog on Writer’s Digest should be on every writers’ list of blogs they read daily. She knows her stuff as a publisher and editorial director of the messiah of writing magazines.

Jody Hedlund’s Blog: Jody offers straight forward advice for writers on getting published. What more could a writer want really?

WordCount: Freelancing in the Digital Age: Michelle Rafter’s blog not only offers great advice for fellow freelancers, but also started the blogathon that’s brought many of us writers together. She’s a wonderful “digital” friend as well.

I felt that my readers could benefit from it and I also enjoyed the fact that there was a lot of information both in the blog post itself and also within the links below it.

From BookEnds Blog: The Fate of Self-Published Works

I wanted to share this post with all my writing friends out there. There is an interesting question posed to “BookEnds, LLC” a literary agency regarding why some (and that number seems to be growing) publishers would prefer not to publish a book that’s been self published already.

Read the post, and you be the judge.

Your Turn:  How many of you have self-published? How many of you are thinking about it? Leave your comments below.
