    Men with Pens is an important resource for writers. You talk about design too. A lot. That’s why I won’t nominate Men with Pens this year as I did last year. The top ten blogs for writing should include blogs that are all about writing not a blog that remembers its for freelance writers when they want to win an award. I’m sorry Men with Pens.

  4. @ Mark – Well, with over 750 posts on this site (and counting), and less than 50 on design (and even those are written for writers, not designers)… Are you sure you’re thinking of our blog? 🙂

    Still good to know your opinion and we’ll take it into consideration.

    @ Barbara, Wendi – Aw, thank you!

  5. I don’t think the top ten blogs for writers should be all about writing.

    Being all about writing is what keeps writers from earning any money. By and large, no one wants to hire a “freelance writer” anymore. They want to hire someone who will get results for their business.

    To position yourself as getting results, you need to focus on a lot of things outside the technical aspects of writing – customer service, how you “package” your writing (design), and how you convey value.

    To take another example, it’s also why the top law blogs these days don’t actually focus on legal developments. No one cares. What lawyers and clients do care about is value and that is what the top legal blogs focus on.

    That’s what makes Men in Pens valuable, as they have that focus.

  6. Sure. I think you’d be a great writer! Do WAY better than the current writers.

  7. I voted for this blog. Why? Well you’re the only writing blog that I have subscribed to via feed-burner.

    It was an easy decision.
