Thank you for reading, commenting and writing blogs of your own. I love being part of this community.
Since the baby arrived I have had to cut back on my blog reading, a lot. These are the blogs I always hit when I can. If you don’t read them you should add them to your blogroll in 2010.
Although I’m English I’m American at heart (does that count on green card applications?). Sarah’s blog is a slice of how I imagine every day to be in a small American town to be (although I have no idea if her town is actually small). Her blog is very much like her books, you get pulled in to everyday events from the first sentence. She can make shopping for groceries interesting. Instead of Writergrl her blog could share the name of her latest book, Along for the Ride, because that’s how it feels.
Daisy Whitney at The Book Chick
I just discovered Daisy’s blog in the last few months of the year but it is now a firm favourite. Her energy, enthusiasm and love of reading and writing just jump off the screen and leave you feeling energized. I can’t wait for her debut novel The Mockingbirds or to see how she’s going to spread the word about it.
Another blog I discovered this year. James’ reviews are great and have made me want to read everything he has read. He loves the books he reviews. He also has excellent author interviews and funny stories about book signings he’s been too.
If you’ve been reading my blog for any time at all, you probably know that I LOVE Diana’s books. Her blog is just like them; funny, clever and entertaining, but not afraid to talk about serious topics and make you think about them too.
An old favourite. I love Joelle’s blog, hearing about her writing and her Need to Read posts on books she loves. This year she introduced Wild Card Wednesday interviewing authors and aspiring authors, including yours truly.
I adore Jemi’s posts on writing and I like how she ends each post with a question that gets me thinking. She also leaves wonderful comments.
Another new blog but again a firm favoruite. I’m enjoying following Kim’s road to publication.
I adore her books and I adore her blog too. It is wonderfully chatty, has great contests and if you don’t have much time to search the internet Elizabeth is the Queen of Links. If it’s worth reading she will have linked to it.
Agent, blogger and now writer too. I love Nathan’s posts. He is always interetsing and usually funny too. The only danger is being sucked in to reading all the commetns, which are also interesting and funny.
Miss Snark’s First Victim
A must for all aspiring writers. I have learned so much from this blog. Kudos to all those who enter their work in the many competitions.
There are SO many more excellent blogs that I love and wish I could visit more regularly. What are your favourites?
