I used to make a Best Tweeps for Writers to Follow list on my Not Bob blog. Assuming we eventually get into Twitter for this month-long platform challenge, I thought I should bring it back. The list is fast, loose and fun.
If you think you deserve to be on this list and you’re not, let me know below. If you think someone else should be on this list and they’re not, let me know below (or on Twitter @RobertLeeBrewer). Beyond that, make sure you follow some new tweeps.
There are any number of ways for a writer to find success with their writing, and blogging is one that has gained in popularity over the years. When done right, it can help writers fine tune their voices and develop audiences for their writing. In essence, it’s a great way to build a platform.
Learn how to blog your way to writing success with Writer’s Digest’s Blogging 101 writing course.
In this 4-week course, writers will learn:
- Effective techniques for writing online.
- How to set attainable goals and create a successful blog.
- How to interact with readers and build a sense of community.
- And so much more!
Best Tweeps for Writers to Follow 2015
This list is not really in any order, and I’ll let you know now that it is subjective and includes people I know in real life (including co-workers) and people I don’t know in real life (but wish I did).
Anyway, here it goes:
And we’ll stop there. Not because this is a comprehensive list, but because 50 is nice a round number, and I love debate. So let me (and everyone else in the blogosphere) know the obvious omissions I was too blind to see in the comments below.
Maybe they’ll make the list next year!
