A Top 10 Writing Blog – Quips and Tips for Successful Writers

Copyblogger: This site is the heavyweight champion of the world four years running (and one of the top blogs on the planet)! The brain-child of Brian Clark, his blog keeps winning because of its insightful articles.

  • Can you believe I’m not following the number one blog for writers?! Shame on me; the situation is now rectified…

Men With Pens: James Chartrand and Harry McLeod maintain the number two slot with their inspiring content and rich community discussion.

  • Blog readers love Men With Pens! They’re a wonderful example of loyalty and community in action.

Write to Done: This blog nearly always delivers a home run with its excellent articles for all writers and is the product of top blogger Leo Babauta.

  • Write to Done regularly features Mary Jakesh, whom I love reading. And, Leo Babauta wrote a book and created a blog about zen habits and the art of simplicity.

Editor Unleashed: Inspired by the former Editor-in-Chief of Writer’s Digest, Maria Schneider explores writing, social media and community on her excellent blog.

  • I usually wish I’d written what Schneider did…but the good news is she also has a list of top blogs for writers – which Quips and Tips for Successful Writers is on. 🙂

Freelance Writing Jobs: This site is the first stop for freelance writers seeking new work and great articles (and it remains a top winner since this contest began). Congrats Deb Ng!

  • I recommend following Deb Ng on Twitter – her tweets range from her kid’s exploits to her observations about other writers and bloggers.

Confident Writing: Joanna Young delivers rich and useful articles that will help you take your writing to the next level.

  • I hadn’t heard of Confident Writing until now, and I look forward to reading more of Young’s work!

Urban Muse: Susan Johnston covers a wide range of excellent topics that all writers will enjoy.

  • Susan and I write guest posts for each other every month; I especially enjoy her invitations to give feedback on specific questions (I think the last was “how do you ask for a raise as a freelance writer?”).

WordCount: Journalist Michelle Vranizan Rafter explores the challenges freelance writers face on her excellent blog.

  • This is another writing blog I’ve never heard of – which is the beauty of these contests about top 10 writing blogs.

Quips & Tips for Successful Writers: A true cornucopia of ideas for writers, Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen provides endless content and freelancing tips.

  • This is me! What can I say? I love blogging. 🙂

Fuel Your Writing: This site will certainly fuel you! Michelle Krasniak Oxman and her huge team of contributors provide great content for writers.

  • I can’t believe how well-rounded and informative this writing blog is…it’s incredible.

    I feel the industry is booming namely in areas of academic writing and research. In other major areas SEO and program writing are earning major amounts of money. I feel that as writers we really can overcome a lot of economic hardships if we find out niche and really cater to our clients. My company has really started to excel this year, namely in academic writing. I really would like to work more with authors and publishing companies. Not only can you have an advance or deposit, but truly be part of something entertaining and informative.
