Blogs I Love

I was going through my blog roll today to weed out links to dead blogs as well as re-introduce myself to some of my older favorites. If you get a chance to skim through my blog roll, here are a few links you should definitely click on--these come highly recommended.

Words on the Page. This is one of the blogs I visit every week. Lori's posts are uniformly well-written and thoughtful, and her approach to the business of writing is firm, fair, and level-headed. She also really has it together when it comes to marketing--whether you're new at the game or experienced, there's a lot you can learn on this blog.

The Well Fed Writer Blog. Peter Bowerman is smart, talented, and entertaining--and his advice is always spot-on. Like many freelancers, he's also the person I credit with getting me started--with the eminently readable and practical Well Fed Writer. It's a classic and worth a look, especially if you're just starting out.

Men With Pens. What I love about Men With Pens is that it's a bit edgy. James Chartrand is never afraid to call it like it is--and the writing is always entertaining.

IttyBiz. IttyBiz is like your older (funny) entrepreneurial sister. This site always cracks me up. It's hilarious, it's no-nonsense, and it offers great advice. It's more geared toward business in general than to freelance writing in particular, but most freelancers run IttyBizes--so most of what you find here will probably be applicable.

What are your favorite blogs? Now that I've narrowed it down, my blogroll could use some fleshing out!
