I miss you, bloggers!

Alex Cavanaugh, Matthew MacNish, and Andrew Leon have teamed up on a blogfest that I think is brilliant! It gives us a chance to give a little shout-out to the bloggers who haven't been blogging as much lately, to let them know that we miss them.

And also a shout out to those we'd miss if they ever stopped.

There are so many bloggers that I miss! I am thrilled to highlight a few of them.


THE BLOGS I MISS

When I read about this blogfest, the first blog that came to mind that I miss is C'MERE! Whatcha doin?, the blog of K. Marie Criddle.


Marie is one of those people that is amazing at every single things she does. And she does a lot! She's not a bragger, so she doesn't inundate you with the awesome, but even still, you're blown away at first sight. SHE DRAWS ALL OF HER POSTS, people! And not only that, but she is layer upon layer of funny! And thoughtful. Every once in a while, another detail of her incredibleness eeks out, and you'll find your jaw was still dropped in awe from the last time. I think there's probably nothing she can't do. Hop on over and say hi! Marie's blog.

Another blog I miss is Empty White Pages, the blog of Sarah Pearson.


Sarah is thoughtful and kind and very supportive of the writing community. Plus, she's a music savant! She used to do a lot of posts where she took someone's book blurb, and found songs that she felt represented their book, in a Musical Impressions series. It was so much fun to see a WIP represented like that! I loved it! Go let her know you miss her! Sarah's Blog.

I also miss The Startled Spyglass, the blog of Brenda Sills.


Brenda is fun and amazing and insightful, and has a great blogging voice. Plus, I've met her in real life a few times, and I've got to tell you-- besides being a great writer, she is an incredible human being. Stop by! Brenda's blog.

WHO I WOULD MISS IF THEY EVER STOPPED BLOGGING

One of my very favorite writing blogs out there is Pub(lishing) Crawl.


If I had to recommend a blog to writers, it would be this. The ladies at Pub Crawl rock. Their posts are thought-provoking, insightful, well written, and helpful. They are written by authors, a publishing sales rep, agents, editorial assistants, and a book wholesaler, so there is such a broad range of information and perspectives on the writing world. Even when they are talking about a subject I know quite well, I still learn tons from every post. If you haven't already been reading Pub Crawl, check it out! They are definitely worth it. Pub Crawl Blog.

Thanks, Alex, Matthew, and Andrew for the great blog hop!

I, too, miss Brenda and Sarah, but I'm so glad you're still here (and that I get to see you every week - added plus!). I might have to swipe people's banners next time. :)

Sarah is on my list of missed bloggers, too. I've seen her mentioned in several posts today!

Adam Heine said...

Oh heck yeah, I miss Marie's blog. They're hilarious! She still draws once a week-ish over at <a href="http://anthdrawlogy.blogspot.com/>Anthdrawlogy</a>, but man, those drawgs were so good!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Bloggers who draw? And are musically inclined? I feel like a loser!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Peggy .. I know Sarah - sometimes they slip through the net .. hope she'll be back.

Obviously your selections have brought back memories for others .. and I love the way you've laid your post out ..

Cheers and enjoy your writing, leaving your lights on and the occasional cookie .. and yes happy kids are the best kids .. Hilary

Those are some fun blogs. I already checked out Pub Crawl--cool! I used to check a lot more blogs, but I've had to trim that down significantly so it's fun to be introduced to a few new ones.

Writer Pat Newcombe said...

So nice to remember the blogs that are no longer with us. Wonder why? Maybe they just got tired or stressed or maybe life got in the way or... help! my writers brain is interfering as 'whatif' just occurred to me!

Susanne Drazic said...
