A Bit of Blogs, Just for You!

I’ve recently discovered a couple of new blogs that I really like, so I thought I’d share them with you.

The first is by Jeff Goins, at http://goinswriter.com. I like his perspective on writing, not just the craft, but the work of it. And he has a sense of humor, too. That’s always nice.

The second is The Creative Penn, by Joanna Penn. I love the diversity of topics she addresses, and her knowledge of publishing is really broad. Plus an added bonus: she’s got a lovely accent!

Last but not least, here’s a blog on, you guessed it, blogging! Anytime you’re struggling with keeping up with the bloggers, or if you want to feel as though someone is walking the blogging road with you, just hop on over to Successful Blog (http://www.successful-blog.com) with Liz Strauss. She’s got great counsel and ideas that can help not just with blogging, but with your writing as well.

How about you? Any blogs you can’t get through the day without reading? Well, other than the Steve Laube Agency blog, of course! (And those already recommended in the right hand column under “Industry Blogs.”) But share your discoveries so we can all benefit.

    Karen:

    I don’t read a blog every day. But when I do, I read The Literary Man, http://literaryman.com/. It’s funny, informative, diverse, sometimes easy, and not as pretentious as it sounds, though it does come from New York City.

    Michael Hyatt’s blog is amazing. And his pod casts are great too.
    For my mystery writing, I also enjoy

    forensics4fiction.com

    It has a lot of great information about police investigations, criminal minds and methods, and lab techniques. I’ve learned a lot from him.

    Thanks, Karen. Have a fabulous day!!

    I agree with Kristen on Michael Hyatt’s blog, but the Blogging Bistro is good, too.
    Last week I posted about What Makes a Successful Blog based on what I learned from Suzie Eller (Proverbs 31 speaker) when I took her class at the Write to Publish Conference in Chicago. Suzie reaches out to over 10,000 moms at her blog Moms Together.

    Here’s Suzie’s presentation:

    Signed up for Jeff Goins’ blog several weeks ago and I’m working through the 15 Habits of Effective Writers. Love his blog! Also just signed up for the other two. Looking forward to learning a lot.

    I suggest Harvest House editor Nick Harrison’s blog. Also StoryFix.
