The winners of this year’s Top 10 Blogs for Writers have just been announced and I made it!
Yep, Confident Writing is up there in the top 10, which means I get to wear this badge, with pride.
Congratulations to Brian Clark of Copyblogger fame on making it a hat-trick (he’s won three times in a row) and all the other winners.
Here’s the full list of winners with Michael’s narrative:
Copyblogger: As the undefeated champ, this blog has held the number-one spot for three straight years! The baby of Brian Clark, this blog keeps winning because of its excellent and educational articles.
Men With Pens: James Chartrand and Harry McLeod are the dynamic duo who continue to deliver rich content and community discussion.
Freelance Writing Jobs: Founded by Deb Ng, 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).
Write to Done: This blog delivers a steady stream of excellent articles for all writers and is the product of top blogger Leo Babauta.
Confident Writing: Looking for encouragement? Joanna Young will help you take your writing to the next level.
The Renegade Writer: Linda Formichelli and Dianna Burell, authors of a book by the same name, help freelance journalists find inspiration.
Remarkable Communication: One part writing, one part marketing and one part selling, this excellent blog by Sonia Simone will help any writer succeed.
Writing Journey: Looking for a great stop on your writing journey? Bob Younce’s blog will refresh and energize you.
Freelance Parent: Two moms, Lorna Doone Brewer and Tamara Berry, provide excellent perspective on writing while balancing time with little ones.
Urban Muse: Susan Johnson covers a wide range of excellent topics that all writers will enjoy.
Of special note: The top 3 blogs in this contest were within 1 percentage point of each other, making this an exceptionally close race. I have been impressed at the quantity and quality of blogs for writers that have emerged since we began this contest three years ago. I encourage all bloggers to take a close look at what the above blogs are doing.
Thanks to everyone here for your support and encouragement, for your comments and contributions and for your silent readership Thanks a million to Jon and Becky for the nominations, to Michael Stelzner for running the competition… and I’ll stop there before this starts to sound like an Oscar acceptance speech!
