PROJECT 20/20: BUILD MY BLOGROLL WEEK 20 ADD!

Hi Writers,
I'm back, shamelessly two-days late for this, the wrap-up of my Project 20/20: Build my Blogroll Project. I apologize to anyone who worried I'd given it all up to join a roving mime troupe. I've been on holiday, celebrating with family and doing good deeds involving small children and their pets.

But in being late, I did violate one of my own best blog practices: if you say you're going to do something, do it. For that I apologize.

As many of you who've been following this project know, I've been diving in the deep seas of the web for 20 weeks now in search of the best writer's blogs to add to my roster.

Thanks to all who have followed my blogroll project, who have nominated a blog or complimented other writer's blogs. It's been an amazingly educational journey for me and I hope you've found something useful along the way, as well.

For my 20th blogroll add, I wanted to spotlight one of the hardest working, most talented and most deserving writers I know. If you're a Writer's Digest reader, you're surely familiar with the copious work of this writer. I think you'll find this blog a darn good read.

Jordan's Muse
by Jordan E. Rosenfeld

Jordan recently released her book Make a Scene and she's been posting on her book and blog tour. Jordan's blog covers a lot of different subjects--she uses it as a journal of sorts. It's an excellent entree into the everyday life of a working writer. Check it out, you'll be glad you did.

And although this is the 20th and final blog I'm adding for my Project 20/20, I'm going to continue to hunt for the best writer's blogs on the web and spotlight them from time to time, so don't be shy about leaving me a comment with a link to your blog or recommending another writer's blog.

I'm off to Florida for a 7-day vacation with my family. My fearless editing team: online managing editor Brian A. Klems and managing editor Kara Gebhart Uhl, will be posting here on The Writer's Perspective next week, so stay tuned for some new voices, insights and opinions on the writing world.

In two weeks, I'll be sharing 20 tips every blogger should know, much of which is what I've learned from all of you during my Project 20/20.

I sincerely appreciate your readership. I wish you all peace, happiness and publication in 2008.

Keep Writing,
Maria
