Blog Browser Day

It’s very easy to become focussed on books and writing.  In point of fact, the Indie scene would be by no means so strong without blogs!  That’s right – blogs.  To give blogs their due recognition, I’m proposing a regular “Blog Browser Day”.

I recognise that not all writers have blogs, but the idea here isn’t to simply advertise our own blogs!  Indeed, not all writers publish books – many publish articles and/or write blogs, exclusively.  This means that focussing on authors who have published books actually deprives us all of some tremendous writing talents – and that’s something I’d like to rectify.  You can submit the name of any blog that you find useful to your reading and/or writing activities.  You can nominate your own blog no more than once every three months, so there’ll be no blog just sat there on every Blog Browser Day post.  Equally, while it’s very possible that a blog may be submitted for inclusion by more than one person, I’ll do my best to prevent duplication during the course of a month (preferably longer).

So what blogs qualify?  As I say above: any blog that you find useful in your reading/writing life.  There are a few restrictions: no blatantly adult blogs (that includes those containing erotica, strong language, and anything else which may be regarded as generally offensive or unsuitable for a general audience), no blogs dedicated to “self-improvement” (exercise, diet, beauty and other such blogs), no “make easy money” or “Coupon” blogs.  Other blogs are all subject to review and acceptance or refusal at my sole discretion.  Submissions must be made using the form below.  If information is missing from the submission, then I reserve the right to reject it without review – I have limited time and hunting for information is something I prefer to do for my own needs, sorry!

Note that these recommendations do not constitute nominations for the Imagineer Blog Awards!

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
