The Big List of Writing Blogs

on August 14, 2007 in Blogging, Writers' Resources

Here is a list of writing blogs broken into three sections: blogs for writers (offering tips and resources for writers), writers' blogs (personal blogs of writers or editors, detailing mostly their own work), and blogs on blogging (specifically about blog writing / management, since blogging encompasses much more than writing). If I've missed writing blogs that you're aware of, or that you run, please leave a comment with the blog's name and URL, and I'll continually update this list to reflect any suggestions that I approve.

    I wouldnt mind being added to your list! If you like my blog of course…

  16. Jennifer Mattern August 29, 2007 Reply

    You’re already on there Chris. I had added you after seeing you listed in another post from someone in the list. I put you in the blogs on blogging category. If that doesn’t sound right (if blogging isn’t the focus or I missed something), let me know, and I’ll consider moving it. πŸ™‚

  17. Matt August 29, 2007 Reply

    Jenn, would you mind looking at my site to see if it warrants inclusion? πŸ™‚ (I put you on my blogroll)

    Would you consider adding my writer’s blog to your list?
    — Despite that fact that the subject matter (writing Erotic Romance) is adult in nature, the actual How-To content is not.

  22. Jennifer Mattern September 6, 2007 Reply

    I did add it Morgan, but with a little note that it may potentially contain adult content (as different people would have different definitions of “adult” content… figured it was best to warn the potentially easily offended).

  23. Daria Black September 12, 2007 Reply

    Hello, I run a site for writers as well and would love it if I could be added to this great list.

    Thanks and have a great day πŸ™‚

    I just started a blog for writers – a place for stories started, but never finished.

    It’s been contributed to by mostly friends right now, but I hope to get more contributions by other writers.

    My site is called A Writer’s Eye and is updated 4-5 times a week, with articles on writing, book reviews, the occasional market list, and my own experiences in the writing field. I hope you find it good enough to add.

    Want to add mine?

    I am trying to help new bloggers as they enter into blogosphere. I also showcase a new blogger (4 months old or less) each week to get them more attention. No question is a stupid question on my site.

    Hello Jennifer,

    I’ve recently discovered your blog and I must congratulate you for all the work and dedication you visibly put into it. I think it is a wonderful resource for writers and even if my blog ( addresses to blog owners and publishers I will recommend yours by putting a link in the “Blogs We Love” blogroll section, for all the good information that you constantly provide.

    Thank you!

    Nice list, and useful content,
    just wanted to tell you that Writer’s Tips is a dead link so you might consider updating the list :).

    I have a blog called “Writhing in Apathy” at; I’ve posted articles I’ve written in the past as well as essays on working for magazines. Mostly it’s filled with stories about the ridiculous things that happen to me. If it’s appropriate for your list, please add it.

    I’m going to shamelessly suggest my blog as a great resource for writers — especially those just starting out. It links to the home page of my website, but I’ll provide the direct link to make life easier for surfers:

    Thanks for giving it a review. This is a great resource you’ve got here!

    Hi Jennifer,

    I am a writer who blogs. Would these two of mine qualify for inclusion?

    In case the first blog seems a little confusing at first, the interviews are with one of the principal characters of my latest novel.

    All the best,

    I’m a writer with a blog, specifically about how I approach writing – tools and tricks – as well as my journey (hopefully) toward being published.

    I have just started a writer’s blog, These Open Pages, that is chronicling my journey toward publication. It is currently updated every few days, and it mostly discusses my work, the stories behind the stories, as well as issues that I think most writers can identify with. I would certainly appreciate being added to your list.

    My blog, Midlist Writer, at details the life of a writer who has made it but not made it big.

    I’ve been making my living at writing for several years now and have published seven books, but you probably haven’t heard of me. That’s because I’m a midlister, one of the unsung majority of professional writers. My blog features advice, news, and resources for writers, as well as insights from the writing trenches. Visit Midlist Writer for the real scoop on what it’s like to be a professional writer.

    Dear Jennifer Mattern:

    I have been writing articles for papers, magazines, and journals for for several years. I self-published two novels through and started a blog in 2007 to which I have posted occasionally.

    My writing has been mostly an isolated effort to date. No more. Earlier today, I subscribed to several writer’s blogs in order to wade deeper into the writing world, as well as to add grist to my mill.

    My blog’s title is explained in it’s earliest post. I hope you find it a meaningful addition to your list.
