Steampunk Spotlight: Blogging Superstars!
I started blogging as a way to market my fiction, but lately I’ve become much more a writer of nonfiction on my blog. And I enjoy it. I write about relationships and personal struggles and steampunk, and I’ve even started podcasting, and I love it. Blogging has given me an outlet for expression. It’s connected me with new, lovely people. It’s helped people deal with relationship issues, and of that I am extremely proud. Some have even written to me for relationship advice or dropped a line to tell me how my blog has touched them or helped their relationship in someway. It is incredibly rewarding.
Until recently I wouldn’t have categorized myself as a blogger, but that’s most certainly what I’ve become, and I have other wonderful bloggers to thank for that. I’ll continue to write what’s in my heart openly for the whole world to see, and I always appreciate your comments. In fact, I love your comments! Please keep them coming and always feel free to email me privately as well.
Below are my top five blogs. Check them out, as they are well worth following.
1. Beyond Victoriana: The fabulous Ayleen the Peacemaker explores multiculturalism in Steampunk, reports on conventions, and offers reviews. I had the pleasure of spending some time with this amazing woman at the Steampunk World’s Fair.
2. Overbury Ink: Excellent blog on all things Steampunk and the creator of #SteamTuesday. Thanks to Nancy’s support over the past year. She blogs on Steampunk artists, musicians, authors, and more.
3. The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences: The website and blog of Steampunk authors Tee Morris and Pip Ballentine. Their Tales from the Archives podcast series is especially wonderful (I have a story in there called “Dust on the Davenport“).
4. Lesism: This blog I just found a few days ago, but it has quickly become one of my favorites. Les Floyd eloquently (and wittily) writes about spiritual awakening and being in the present moment. There are also fun fiction stories and videos!
5. Terrible Minds: Chuck Wendig’s blog on being a penmonkey. Excellent and entertaining resource for writers. Even if you’re not a writer, you will enjoy his unique and humorous voice throughout this great blog.
Thank you all for your continued work.
To take part in passing the thanks forward, all you have to do is:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
And most of all – pass the fun forward!
