On a (blog)roll……

March 19, 2012

It’s about time I updated my blogroll – that little list over to the right that shares my favorite places on the blog-o-sphere.

I hate to do it, but I am removing a couple of blogs – and not because I don’t love them dearly – they simply don’t write any more. boo. hiss. ** Imagine me throwing broken pencils at them for stopping. ** Oh, how I get it, though. This writing thing ain’t so easy to maintain.

The good news is there are quite a few additions – and they put fingers to keyboard just about all the time. 😎 Yeah!

I’ll give you a quick rundown…

My Name is Not Bob
Robert Lee Brewer writes about writing, poetry, and parenting. What’s not to love? And on Wednesday, March 21, he is going to feature one of my essays about living in India in the Life Changing Moments Series on his blog. (Part One of the essay appears Wednesday and Part Two will appear on Friday.) Yes. SQUEEAA!

He also blogs at Writer’s Digest about poetry. His blog is called Poetic Asides.

Writer UnBoxed
Also a blog about writing with a ton ‘o knowledgeable people contributing their thoughts and ideas. And on Friday, March 23rd, Writer UnBoxed will feature another essay from little ole me – it’s about my thoughts on believing in your writing.  Squeeeeeaaaa indeed!

Rachelle Gardner
Just so you don’t think you have to feature one of my essays on your blog to make my blogroll (although, Rachelle, if you’re listening 😉 ), this is another blog I read every. single. day. Rachelle is a literary agent with Books & Such. She is honest (balanced with kindness) about what agents do and don’t want. She has a ton of writing and publishing advice on her blog.

Seth Godin
Seth writes about everything. His posts are short and he always gives us something to think about.

Obscura Journal
This is a photography-slash-writing website. They post a monthly contest called Bridge the Gap. They show two photographs and you have to create a story in under 1,000 words to bridge the two pictures. It’s great fun and you can enter without paying a reading fee. Schweeet! This isn’t really a blog – but it is a tres coolio site.

So check them out – I heart them all and maybe you will too!

      Welcome Kiril! Obscura has a very cool contest – it really pushes writers to imagine – and Writer Unboxed published my article, so I heart them!
