Neil Gaiman’s Journal – There’s a real sense of ‘diary’ about this blog. Gaiman is an in-demand author and his blog reflects this. When he writes about writing, it pays to read, but he never forgets his readers.
Jody Hedlund – Author blogs often fall into one of two camps – those for writers and those for readers. This blog is very much for the former. Hedlund writes about her writing processes, productivity, and all the tips and tricks of the trade.
Terrible Minds – Could also be called ‘Ferocious Language’, but once you get past the NSFW rating of Wendig’s ramblings, there’s absolute gold in there for writers.
Tara Moss – Oh, but she writes a beautiful blog. A fantastic mix of thought-provoking social commentary, narrative, opinion, books… Moss rarely writes about writing.
Seth Godin – Non-fiction author Godin writes a short, sharp blog. A fantastic example of how a few words can have a big impact.
Emily Benet – I’ve only recently discovered this blog, but there’s lots to like here. It’s funny, offers some unusual post ideas and gives great insight into the author’s personality.
Now it’s your turn. Which are your favourite author blogs and why? I’m also interested to know if you’re visiting them as a reader or a writer.
