We’re Building Our Blogroll: Submit Your Writing Site or Blog to Participate

Over at The Writer Mama Riffs blog, I only have one rule, and that’s that your blog must be a writer mama blog. Of course, I bend the rule from time to time.

Over here, at the Writers on the Rise archive, I think it makes sense to have blogs that focus on the kinds of professional writing skills that we’ve been talking about in our e-zine for the past five years.

So, I can’t promise everyone that their blog will be added. A lot of blogs are not as focused or regularly updated as I would like the blogs on this list to be.

But don’t let that stop you from adding yours to the comments. Go ahead and add your blogroll to the comments, and if it focuses on writing (craft, habits, lifestyle, selling, self-promotion, etc.), I will add it.

I’m looking forward to watching our writing community grow!

    I just found your blog and have enjoyed paging through some of the offerings. Another blog that I write for sometimes is http://literarydatabase.wordpress.com/

    There’s some good stuff there.

    I’ll be at AWP this year, too, so maybe our paths will cross.

    All the best in the new year,

    This is a brand new web site I created and launched just a few weeks ago. I’m a life-long writer but just now am going out on my own as a fiction and non-fiction writer. Please add my website to your list. Thansk for the terrific work you are doing to educate all writers. Doris

    Hi! Thanks for producing Writers on the Rise and Writer Mama. I’ve been reading your newsletters for some time now, and every time, I’m left sitting a little taller. I blog about the writing life, with a good dash of reading news at http://inkgleanings.blogspot.com/.

    Christina, I blog about memoir writing. Have 122 posts after one year and love it. I do book reviews of memoir and books about memoir. I comment on memoir in the news and write my own mini-memoirs. I also share tips. I’m on FB and Twitter, also.

    Hi Christina,
    Wow, what a great idea! I’m so glad I stumble across this information. I’m an unpublished paranormal romance author. I have a website dedicated to sharing writing tips, inspiration and hope along the way to becoming published.
