Michael Stelzner, the white paper guru, is running his annual contest for the year’s Top 10 Blogs for Writers. Now’s the time to submit your nominations–you have until this coming Friday, September 12. Write a comment on his post to nominate or vote for a blog.
Now if Remarkable Communication happens to be your favorite writing blog, I would dearly love your vote. Getting on a Top 10 list like this would be a wonderful way to re-launch this blog and expand the wonderful community that’s grown here.
But it would be churlish of me not to point to some other great contenders! I truly want you to vote for whichever writing blog you find the most valuable. Whether it’s mine or someone else’s, the important thing is to get your vote counted.
Here’s a very incomplete list of some terrific writing blogs.
- Bob Younce at The Writing Journey
- Sharon Hurley Hall at Get Paid to Write Online
- The hilarious Tei Lindstrom at Rogue Ink
- Tom Chandler’s The Copywriter Underground
- John Hewitt’s Poewar
- Sparkplugging’s Freelance Parent, written by Lorna Doone Brewer and Tamara Berry
- Ittybiz, just for awesomeness
- Confident Writing, by the glorious (jubilant, even!) Joanna Young
- The funny and awfully cool Writer Dad
- Roberta Rosenberg’s very smart Copywriting Maven
- Patsi Krakoff’s terrific Writing on the Web (I’m feeling the special love because she nominated ME)
- The elegant and talented Karen Swim and her Words for Hire
- These guys have an awful lot of votes already, but they’re pretty special
- Or, ya know, there’s always that little-known gem Copyblogger
The awful thing about putting together a little list of amazing blogs like this is that I know I’ve left some major ones off. Mend my ways in the comments! Let me know your very favorite writing blog, and be sure you nominate and/or vote for it on Stelzner’s site. Here’s that link again, just add a comment to the post. And remember, you need to vote by September 12.
Jean Gogolin has a new-ish and very good blog called WordTales. Well-written, sharp, and incisive. She’s a speechwriter, but the focus is broader than that–there’s lots of good stuff here for anyone who communicates in words. I invite you all to check it out!
