Today I have the honor of announcing the Top 50 Writing Blogs for 2015!
It’s hard to believe an entire year has passed and yet, here we are with a new list of awesome blogs, and we’ve expanded it from the Top 25 to the Top 50. How cool is that?
The best-of-the-best are chosen for: 1} quality of content, 2} how routinely they are updated, 3} the amount of reader engagement (comments and social media shares, etc.), and 4} how long the blogs kept me glued to them.
Compiling the Top 50 Writing Blogs has allowed me to discover so many quality blogs I might have never found otherwise and for that I am beyond grateful. However, I must confess there were so many outstanding blogs to choose from that it became extremely difficult to limit the list to a mere 50.
You will notice a few sites made the list that are not 100% about writing, but they are 100% relevant to writers and will not only help you improve your writing, they will also provide you with outstanding tips on how to promote your work.
Be sure to visit all of the blogs and since there are quite a few, bookmark this post for future reference. And, of course, feel free to forward it to fellow scribblers in the Craft.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of the Champions!
A badge is located below the list if you’d like to display your awesomeness on your site. All of you have an open invitation to guest post here on Positive Writer.
