Pay it Forward Blogfest

 

Matthew MacNish at The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment and Alex Cavanaugh have created the Pay It Forward Blogfest. 

"Here is how the blogfest will actually work: The idea is to introduce everyone to everyone else. We want this to be an easy post that allows you to meet and follow as many other bloggers as you can. In your post, we would like you to please list, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading, but that you suspect may fly under the radar of a lot of other bloggers. Or they can be famous blogs, as long as they're awesome.

But don't stop there! Certainly visit and follow all the blogs that are featured in people's posts the day of the blogfest, but those don't have to be the only blogs you visit. You can visit everyone who enters in on the fun, and signs up on the linky list. In the interest of time you don't even have to leave comment. You can just follow, and come back another time. After all, we all know we don't have time to visit every blog we enjoy every single day."

So here are the three blogs I'm highlighting:

1. Linda Mclaren - I just started following this blog, and it's a great one. Linda does what she can to help other writers including opening it up to logline for critiques.

2. Cherie Reich - A good friend, awesome writer and great editor. She always knows the right thing to say.

3.David Powers King - A fellow fantasy writer, I love visiting David's blog.

So there you go, 3 blogs that I want to pay it forward with. What are some of your favorite blogs to visit?

I'm off to go find new blogs to follow!
