The Best Links of the Week
The theme this week is writing inspiration.
Georgina Cromarty from The Writing Chimp in Why Do We Write? expresses six motivations for writing. Her post left me so introspective, I questioned my own motivation for writing. Mine wasn’t anywhere on her list of six! Is your reason for writing on her list? Click her link to find out.
Charles Rogers, from The Rogers Post, wrote a series called “Blogger GPS”. His post What Drives a Writer is one of the articles in that series. First, Charles discusses inspiration for writing offered by people from all walks of life. Then, he explains the various stages of writing using creative metaphors.
In Weekly Link Roundup 4, I explained how Hugh Roberts from Hugh’s Views and News wrote a post called Are You Letting Your Blog Get Out of Control? It was chosen as one of the Best Links of the Week that week. The post has been reblogged at least ten times, and there have been four spin-off posts from his post. One of those spin-off articles was written by Judith Barrow from Barrow Blogs.
In her spin-off post Blogging and How I Got It Wrong, Judith discusses how to balance time limitations when writing. Clearly, the overwhelming reaction to Hugh’s post shows there is a widespread concern over lack of time. Hugh wrote me that even he was surprised.
Wow, I’m just gob-smacked by the attention this post is getting, Janice. This post is by far my most viewed and most commented on post now.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s link selections.
Readers, I am still looking for blogging-related link submissions. Please put them in the comments section. You are welcome to submit links other than your own.
Please share this post, so others can meet these bloggers and writers and know about this opportunity to get exposure as well.
Before you go, Hugh’s method, with which Judith agrees, is to unfollow people who aren’t attentive in your blogging community. Hugh calls them “ghosts” since they don’t make their presence known. They feel this will save you time since you will have fewer Emails in your inbox. Do you agree, or do you have guilt unfollowing people? Also, Georgina and Charles discussed their inspiration for writing. What is your inspiration? I look forward to your views.
