DAY 9: My Favourite Blogs

For the prolific writers and voracious readers, this is the best time to be alive. The 4th Industrial Revolution ushered in by the invention of the Internet brought a fundamental change in society. An avalanche of information is available and can be shared for free  globally by a mere tap of a button. Knowledge is Power so says a common adage but it can be power only if it is applied to improve one’s life.

By use of a Smart Phone, anyone can create content and share it instantly; personal issues can go public in an instant or local issues become global. Writers and readers exchange knowledge and education. They can also develop channels for cooperation with other people and groups working on related topics.

With so much free information available, each of us has the responsibility to create relevant and original content and the readers have to decipher the  information.

As a reader now turned –writer, I find myself spoilt for choice.  While trying to focus on writing, I have trained myself to select the most relevant Blogs which add value to me as an individual and as emerging writer. I keep adding on the list as I go along.

These are my favourite Blogs

  1. Two Drops of Ink

https:twodropsofink.com/blog-  This is literary Blog for collaborative Writing. You can contribute short stories and read a wide spectrum of short stories in the major genres. The feedback from other writers is vital in the growth of the writer. The Blog also provides literary criticism and book reviews.

2. Pen and Prosper

https:penandprosper.blospot.com- A blog for writers, run by a professional writer and columnist. It aims at helping new writers to learn the ropes and senior writers with ideas to develop a lucrative career. It offers a lot to read and learn.

3..Michael Hyatt – A virtual Leadership Mentor and Coach. Michel Hyatt was at one time a literary agent. He develops tools to guide leaders to lead in all situations including the current COVID-19 pandemic; leaders who lead with focus and clarity. I have attended several webinars on this blog and found them extremely relevant and useful.

There are several other blogs that I visit once in a while but due to limited time, I have had to focus on those three to advance my writing skills.
