Pimp Your Favorite

Question of the week, sent in by the wonderful Kvetch: I read your blog all time and I'm curious if you could recommend some other writers/authors blogs as well. I know you have a long blog-roll, and I've clicked around but would love a little direction.

The truth is that I don't know many other than what is on my blog rolls, so if you readers out there have good ones, post 'em below!

Speaking of other blogs, check out fellow author Sarah Jio's blog. She's a prolific magazine writer who also just happens to have interviewed moi today! :)

Stumbled across your blog, and I love it. It's a great source for those of us venturing into the world of freelance. Which brings me to my question: I'm a former magazine editor, and I've resigned to pursue freelance. I have some steady work from my former employer and other smaller titles, but I'd like to build relationships with some Conde Nast, Time Inc, etc. titles. What's the best way to begin building these relationships? How do I best make those introductions and let them know I'm available and would like to serve them? Do I need to spend much of my time working on solid queries and sending those out? Or do such editors even regard unsolicited queries? Your thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks so much!

I wholly recommend Waiting for My Real Life at

She's amazing, and just happens to be my BBFF!

(That stands for Best Blog Friend Forever!)

She doesn't boast much about her writing, but she is an editor for a national publication, and she'll make you laugh, AND she'll make you think!

I find the best way to discover new blogs is to follow links in the comments sections. I've come across some wonderful blogs this way. Of course, you have to set aside a good chunk of time because you can really get lost in blogland sometimes!

and of course, now the mandatory pitch for my own blog, at :-)

Ohhhh, look at my Manic! She didn't even tell me she was pimping me! Thank you, my BBFF :)

And of course, Manic's is wonderful, and I'm not just saying that!
