Do you have a writer's blog?

One of the things I have done this summer is set up a blog that focused exclusively on writing: my thoughts about it, my complaints, the articles I would like people to read, how I am trying to improve my own writing, stuff like that. The reason I started it was the fact that all the rest of my blogs were general blogs. There was no constancy in any of them. I know that I only subscribe to blogs were there is a focus. If it is a blog about cats, that is all I want to see there. If it is about writing, I don't want to see stuff about your dog unless it is a tale about the latest article you wrote about your dog, or he turned off the power to your computer while you were working. Perhaps it is just me, but that is how I bookmark things. I do not bookmark hodge-podge sites. Nor do I play much attention to hodge-podge blogs. So am I the only one that has a blog that is focused on writing? Here is mine, let me see yours. http://morgandrake.blogspot.com

I do blog at http://www.willowlady.blogspot.com and it is for things that are interesting or helpful. I like to be of service so I find things that someone might find useful in some way. Also if it is popular enough I can get on another site where I can blog and be paid for assigned topics. So it is a means to the end if it ever happens. Will look at yours, will try to comment I hope you do too!

I think what you are talking about is a blog about writing, not a writer's blog. All bloggers are essentially writers, but we focus on various subjects or, some just keep a personal journal of their lives. I blog about fashion, gossip, beauty and I also write for paid-to-post sites. My blog is not about writing, but I do consider myself to be a writer. You can view it by going to my profile. Good luck with your blog!

You might be right. Occasionally, I am not quite sure how to say something. I tend to put the modifier in front of the noun. Thanks.

Hi! Morgan, this is Medy. I enjoy writing and I dream of publishing my own book someday. I also like to put my thoughts, comments, suggestions and recommendations into writing because they are more logical and comprehensible that way. Are you a regular writer? I used to write in our local newspaper but mostly it's about environmental protection and sustainable development of our province. Can you or anyone out there give me tips on how to start publishing my own book and turn it into a hot selling thing? You may reach me through http://mylot.com/Medy1989

I ended up becoming a freelancer after becoming unemployed and starting college. I have been writing since high school. Over the past fifteen years, I have occasionally submitted stuff resulting in the occasional check. A couple years ago, as I said because of circumstances, I was forced to be more serious and focused about it.

I don't have a "writers BLOG" per se, rather I prefer to write individual articles on Gather. http://www.gather.com/inviteLanding.jsp?parentMemberId=56566&tc=11 I find a blog to be too much of a continuation for me. I prefer to write individual pieces on individual subjects, rather than using ONE blog for everything. Does that make sense?

Yeah, that makes sense. It is Helium that I tend to write individual articles on. My two speciality blogs ended up happening because I find a good part of my writing occuring in those two fields. That and they mirror my own reading habits.
