Top Ten Blogs for Writers: Men with Pens Takes Second Place

We’re both pleased and honored to announce that we’ve made the cut as one of the Top Ten Blogs for Writers two years in a row – and we couldn’t be happier.

Michael Stelzner released his third annual Top Ten Blogs for Writers list this morning. There we were at position number 2, barely squeaking out the competition and just missing the number one spot.

We had tough competition, and we’d invite everyone to head over and check out each of the winners:

  1. Copyblogger: As the undefeated champ, this blog has held the number-one spot for three straight years!  The baby of Brian Clark, this blog keeps winning because of its excellent and educational articles.
  2. Men With Pens: James Chartrands continue to deliver rich content and community discussion.
  3. Freelance Writing Jobs: Founded by Deb Ng, this site is the first stop for freelance writers seeking new work and great articles (and it remains a top winner since this contest began).
  4. Write to Done: This blog delivers a steady stream of excellent articles for all writers and is the product of top blogger Leo Babauta.
  5. Confident Writing: Looking for encouragement? Joanna Young will help you take your writing to the next level.
  6. The Renegade Writer: Linda Formichelli and Dianna Burell, authors of a book by the same name, help freelance journalists find inspiration.
  7. Remarkable Communication: One part writing, one part marketing and one part selling, this excellent blog by Sonia Simone will help any writer succeed.
  8. Writing Journey: Looking for a great stop on your writing journey? Bob Younce’s blog will refresh and energize you.
  9. Freelance Parent: Two moms, Lorna Doone Brewer and Tamara Berry, provide excellent perspective on writing while balancing time with little ones.
  10. Urban Muse: Susan Johnson covers a wide range of excellent topics that all writers will enjoy.

Congratulations to all winners to everyone nominated this year. Also, thanks to the readers who nominated us and who support our endeavors. It’s truly rewarding for our work to be recognized this way.

A special thank you goes out to Michael for organizing this event for two reasons: One, because events like these are huge to manage and I’m sure he spent a good deal of time on this one, and two, because his contest gives many bloggers out there a chance to be noticed and grow their readership.

See you next year!
