Top 10 Blogs for Writers 2010

Reader Comments (60)

  1. I enjoy Men with Pens a lot because they mastered the art of storytelling when they write their content. They write posts that a lot of other people can relate to

  2. Sonia:
    Thanks for sharing this. I always wonder about the criteria for picking top blogs, in posts about top blogs. Even Time Magazine (probably other major publications) have the top blog picks. So it raises this question for me – what is the criteria used?

    • Randy, click through to the list, they explain it. The original set of blogs were chosen by readers, and then the 20 finalists were whittled to 10 winners by the judges, one of whom was Brian Clark.

      It’s well worth your time to click through and then explore the winning blogs, they’re all terrific.

  3. Thanks for the mention! Still getting used to seeing my name on this list, along with blogs and writers I’ve been recommending to others for years.

      • Thanks Sonia!

        It’s really funny to me to be thought of as new at anything…it’s more like I’m an overnight success after 20 years of hard work…but I am relatively new to working my own personal blog.

        I did start the blog back in 2008, but didn’t really get serious about it until earlier this year. I think I should get serious about winning the lottery next year and see how that goes…

  4. Thanks Copyblogger. It is great to know what other readers think are the BEST resources. It is also a humbling reminder to keep meeting new people and learn…learn…learn.

  5. It hasn’t fully registered for me, that I’m on this list.

    I am honored and humbled to be on the same page as these outstanding writers and bloggers. Thanks again to Brian and all the other judges for their hard work. Must have been a very difficult task.

  6. Thanks for sharing these links. I am looking forward to clicking my way through New Years weekend and inspiring myself for the New Year!

    As alway thank you for inspiring me often and always!

  7. Hi Sonia

    Great list. Perhaps you could add some honourable mentions at the end with a few more who nearly made the cut?

    Kind regards

  8. Hey, thanks very much guys. It’s an honor to have my site on the list, and I’m in very, VERY good company indeed this year. It’s been good to see so many deserving people get mentioned and discovered. Keep up the good work, everyone!

  9. Thank you for the mention! I love running the Renegade Writer blog and I’m glad that others love reading it. I’m very experienced in writing for magazines but am only starting to become more savvy as a blogger. I’m going to subscribe to your feed right now!

  10. Great list, great people, great content.

    ps. Kind of off topic, but I just noticed you guys switched to 2 column layout. How long have I not noticed this? Cool switch!

  11. Great list! I feel “in the know” because I follow half of these already, and I’m looking forward to knowing much more! I also have a writing blog,, that focuses on inspiration and motivation for the beginning or blocked writer, and offers a monthly list of writing contests and markets I compile myself (researching markets and reading other people’s writing blogs is how I procrastinate–Guilty!)

    Thanks for introducing me to a few new favorites!

  12. Thank you for mentioning this list on your site! I was so honored to be a part of it, my fellow winners are people I’m also going to be reading in the coming year. They are all very useful in different ways.

  13. What a great list of blogs! I just started mine about a month ago, and reading great blogs like the ones that were chosen always gives me added motivation to kick things up a notch. 🙂

    Well done!

  14. Great list! Although I’m a frequent visitor to tech-related blogs (Tech Crunch, Mashable, etc.), I’m new to writing blogs. I’ll be sure to check all of these out. Thanks!!

  15. Thanks for sharing out the list! I’ve subscribed to three from this, looking at the rest. Very helpful!

    Happy New Year 2011!

  16. i did not read the top text and straightaway jumped to the top ten list. I have read your top 10 blogs for 2009… So I was shocked to see that copyblogger was not included as Brian Clark was one of the judges. However, copyblogger is really everyone’s favorite and my favorite (even though they recently refused my guest post as they have a certain pool of guest writers :S yet I can’t lie).

    I suggest, make a list of All-time top 10 blogs for writers and please don’t take Brian in as a judge 😉
