The 39 Best Blogs for Writers

While rolling through my typical stable of writing blogs this morning, I stumbled upon this great article by Writer's Market editor Robert Lee Brewer (if you don't follow @robertleebrewer on Twitter, you should). Anyway, he put together a great list of 39 Great Writing Blogs that he believes are most worthy of your precious time. Here's what he says.

While rolling through my typical stable of writing blogs this morning, I stumbled upon this great article by Writer's Market editor Robert Lee Brewer (if you don't follow @robertleebrewer on Twitter, you should). Anyway, he put together a great list of 39 Great Writing Blogs that he believes are most worthy of your precious time.

Here's what he says:

There are so many blogs out there by and for writers. The list below identifies blogs that I personally think are the best blogs for writers to read. If you don't agree with any of the selections (or think I missed a spot), then share your faves in the comments below. That way, I can check them out for next year's list.

Best Blogs for Writers

He then goes on to list all of them in tiers of All-Star Blogs (best of the best), Great Blogs (ready to crack into the best of the best) and Blogs that Rock (worth checking out regularly). He also include the Writer's Digest family of blogs (including this one), so it's hard for me not to love this list (especially because he included a picture of me and my middle daughter, too). But even if mine didn't make it, I'd still agree that his list is pretty spot-on.

What do you think? Any other blogs that deserve consideration in a "Best of Blogs for Writers" list? Drop a comment below and I'll pass that along to Robert--or perhaps compile a "Readers' Choice" list of my own.
