As well as my own blog there are some other fantastic blogs out there, each with a different slant on how they will push you to be the best writer that you can be. Below is a list of the best blogs for writers that I’ve come across. Although I’ve included links to the blogs additional services, I haven’t used them, so use your own judgement when forking over your hard earned cash!
