Posts I loved this week

With this week’s huge selection of awesome posts, I had to stop while the post was still manageable. What an awesome list!

A fantastic post on marketing, this post was certainly one I needed to read. A huge thank you to J W Manus for the tips.

This one is on query letters. It includes Karin Gillespie’s best query letter and helpful tips from Karin Gillespie.

Having never been pregnant myself, I’m in awe of those courageous enough to try it. This post by Outmanned made me laugh out loud…and stare in shock at my screen. Sneeze-pee? Yowzers!

This post is beautiful reminiscence on 7 years of writing and what  learned during them on Brain Pickings.

A huge, HUGE congrats to Winter Bayne for this. An incredibly talented writer, Winter is also incredibly supportive towards others. Check out her blog here.

A lovely post on such a deserving topic, I want to thank Callum McLaughlin for this wonderful post.

I’ve added flashbacks into my books. If you’ve done so, check out this post on how to incorporate them properly into your novel by Now Novel.

This one was really helpful. How long should a post be? I suspected already that it shouldn’t be too long but here are tips on how to determine the most appealing length by Nikki Woods.

Hilarious and just cheeky enough for me, this post on First Drafts by Inky Tavern made me laugh out loud.

If you’re looking for that awesome publishing contract, this is a post on how to research agents (with links to resources) and submit a query letter by Write Nonfiction Now.

Seven brutally honest self-publishing tips, an awesome first look at self-publishing or a great reminder for the rest of us by Therin Knite.

Mishka Jenkins re-blogged this on A Writer’s Life for Me and I thought it was fantastic. It’s a post on how to find inspiration for writers by Spellbound Scribes.

The hero in my WIP is quiet and introverted. While these might sound like interesting, manly traits, it makes him quite difficult to write in a dialogue because he doesn’t say anything! This awesome post on Hidden Emotions gives tips and links to more posts on how to show the reader what your character is feeling but not saying. It’s a great post by another awesome site, Writers Helping Writers.

This one was a lovely post, so beautifully written I sighed at the end. It’s on giving up writing and its written by Monica Bhide on Writer Unboxed.

Finally, the cutest post ever, this one by Deidra Alexander had to go on the list no matter how long this post was getting!

Posts I loved this week

Another great week in the blogging world. Check out these awesome posts. What would I do without you guys? This post would suck.

A great round up of reads for those hot summer days. A big thank you to  for the great post!

Another incredibly helpful post by Sourcerer on Stats and engagement for blogs. If you want facts about blogs and how to raise traffic, this is the post for you. A big thank you to Sourcerer for sharing those numbers and secrets!

This one is both cute and useful. Thank you, Joe Bunting for the list of reasons to write!

Funny, witty and interesting, check out this list of Blogging Confessions from Part Time Monster. Great post!

Blogging tips, I’m always looking to improve my little blog. A big thank you to Out of the Well for these gems!

I loved this one because it’s a funny rant about cellphones…and it has a Star Trek reference. An awesome post from Steve Vernon!

Hilarious and about soccer! Well, this post is just up my alley! Check it out here. (Wee note: You don’t need to know anything about soccer to appreciate it). A big thank you to Steve and Jon’s best things for the great post!

This one is serious and very, very important. Back up your work. D. Emery Bunn has a great suggestion because the very moment you finish your masterpiece, the computer will die and, unless you’ve saved it…Exactly. A big thank you to D. Emery Bunn for those helpful tips and steps.

So cute and funny because that’s exactly what happens with kids, this post had me laughing. Thank you Infinitefreetime for that laugh!

A cute twist on ending that Writer’s Doubt. Thank you to Karin Gillespie for that great post!

I find bloggers and indie authors are very kind people. Here’s an example, Winter Bayne announced that James is back in her blog to give the guy a little help. I wasn’t surprised because Winter has to be one of the most supportive people I know, still it moved me. I thought it was a lovely thing to see.

Here‘s another example. Ch’kara Silverwolf is supporting indie authors by letting them promote their books on her blog. I thought that was absolutely awesome on her part.

There’s something so nice about reading posts from other pet lovers and none is as loving to her little doggies as Rachel Mankowitz. Check out this instalment of Butterfly’s adventures. So cute!

I love these posts. I wish I could take pictures like this one. I have to settle for not cutting people’s heads off and admiring Just Gene’O‘s or Sourcerer‘s.

Sometimes life gives us great cards, sometimes, we get some sucky ones. I was so impressed by Sonia Lathem because she’s dealing with a very difficult medical situation and still managed to put some humour into the post. Now that’s perseverance!

I loved this one because it’s a countdown but also because it’s a TV show countdown with opinion. Good shows and reasons why they’re good or not. Thank you so much for the great post to Part Time Monster! But, before you go, here‘s Sourcerer‘s version of the same idea. Compare!

A wonderful post on what Disney’s Princesses would look like if they were real women. This one had me at the title but the pictures are even better! A big thank you for that lovely post to Frances from Frances and Lynne.

Found this teeny, tiny post and it’s absolutely delicious! Had to share it here because it’s so good. A huge thank you to Adventures in Date Night for the post!

Last but definitely not least, a recommendation from Interesting Literature, 10 Classic Vitorian Novels everyone should read. I’m not big on people telling me what to do but I love to hear book recommendations. A big thank you to Interesting Literature for the great post!
