Decisions, decisions. Sometimes the decisions we make are relatively simple like what clothes to wear, or where to go for lunch. Then there are the harder decisions like do I want to take on a 30 year mortgage or for a writer...is my manuscript really ready for submission?
There is so much to choose from in the world of blogging that at times, it can seem overwhelming. I have been running a contest on my blog (http://donasdays.blogspot.com/2011/12/new-yeara-new-easy-contest.html ) to increase my follower numbers and I feel honored that the people who now read my blogs have chosen me amongst the plethora of possibilities.
But what if you are looking for some good writer blogs? Well, here is a list of some of MY "go to" sites that I follow. Some of these blogs are from new writer friends, some are informative writing blogs for established authors that I save as references, and there are a couple that are inspirational and just plain fun!
1. Beth Stillborn (http://www.bethstilborn.com)
2. Julie Hedlund (http://www.writeupmylife.com)
3. Joanna Penn (http://www.thecreativepenn.com)
4. Darcy Pattison (http://www.darcypattison.com)
5. Kristen Lamb (http://www.warriorwriters.wordpress.com)
6. Linda Silvestri (http://www.sketchedout.wordpress.com)
Okay, there are just a few of the blogs I follow daily. I will give shout outs to others over the next few weeks. The reasons why I follow these blogs and others is mainly to keep me inspired and educated on my way to publication. There is so much to learn for new writers and the sources are endless. But one thing is for certain. While writing itself is a solitary endeavor, the learning curve doesn't have to be.
Make a decision. Grab that newly discovered blog by the tail and see where it leads you!
