Blogroll Update 2.0

with 3 comments

Time for another blogroll update! I’ve been enjoying the blogs of these writers and wanted to share their links with you so you could benefit from their knowledge. If you’d like me to link to your blog, e-mail me or put your blog name and link in the comments.

Writers Scribble is a bit different than the blogs I usually read, and that’s why I like it. Much of the time, I read only the blogs that pertain specifically to Web writing, blogging, and e-book writing. However, I’m realizing that I’m missing out on other sources of ideas and inspiration. Writers Scribble has some fun posts, as well as some posts that are very motivating for authors.

I don’t know why I haven’t linked to The Golden Pencil before. It’s a great blog, filled with expert advice and job leads for writers in many specialties.

Bookwebs is a company that designs Web sites specifically for writers and authors. I’ve never used their services, so I am not endorsing them here. However, their site has a lot of good information on why writers need Web sites, and how you can enhance your writer’s Web site. I think it’s so important that every writer have at least a basic site, so visit Bookwebs and see if any of their tips can help you get started or spruce up an already-existing site.

Angela Booth is fairly well-known in the freelance writing world. She has several blogs, all of which are great resources for established and aspiring writers. Visit Angela Booth’s Writing Blog for solid information on copywriting; Fab Freelance Writing Blog for information on how to make money as a freelance writer; Money Diviner for information about making money online; Top Ebook Writer for information on making money by writing e-books; and Fab Web Writer for information on making money by writing specifically for the Web.

Kathryn Lang has an excellent blog with a lot of inspirational posts. I’ve especially liked her posts on finding success in freelance writing.

Anyone who is interested in writing white papers should be reading Michael Stelzner’s Writing White Papers Blog. His writing is clear and concise, and he’s renewed my interest in getting into this type of writing.

Bob Bly’s Blog is a must-read, especially for those who concentrate on commercial copywriting for a living. His posts are often thought-provoking and he has an active community of commenters, which makes reading each post very informative. I’ve gotten some great ideas by reading his blog and “listening” to what the commenters had to say.

Brian Clark’s Copyblogger should be on every blogger’s list of blogs to read. Brian consistently provides solid information that anyone can use to make more money or improve their business.

Chris Marlow’s Get Great Clients Blog has given me a lot of marketing ideas, and I particularly like reading her posts about developing a niche for yourself.

Marcom Writer is Dianna Huff’s Blog. Here, you’ll find excellent posts on marketing your services as well as examples of marketing communication pieces that don’t quite cut it. Excellent resource for anyone who is involved in or wants to be involved in commercial copywriting.
