Top 10 Blog Posts For Writers


What are the best blog posts a writer could write? Well, I've been thinking about it, and I'm gonna tell ya!


Sherrinda's Top 10 Blog Posts:


10. I Have A Blog Follower! (yes, I joined the writing community and have a follower!)

9. I Finished My First Novel (yes, I accomplished a dream of mine!)

8. My Editor/Dad Says My Book Is Ready! (yes, he is a professional and is editing my book!)

7. I Finalled In The Genesis! (yes, I am one of the finalist!)

6. I Won First Place In The Genesis! (yes, I got first place!!!!)

5. An Agent Requested A Full! (yes, the agent I queried asked for a full manuscript!)

4. I Got An Agent! (yes, my dream agent called and offered representation!)

3. Publisher Has Requested a Full! (yes, my agent called and the publishing house has asked for a full manuscript!)

2. I Got The Call! (yes, my agent called and my book has been contracted for publication!)

1. I Am Holding My Published Book! (yes, holding my papery baby in my hands would be a dream come true!)


I don't really know if these are the best posts ever, but I am thinking they are pretty high up there for most writers. I've accomplished #9 and #10 and it felt great! I can only imagine what it will feel like to be able to post about each of those accomplishments.

What would you add?

  1. LOL! Nothing to add! They're awesome! I remember my first follower. I didn't even know about followers until one day a little thumb-sized face appeared on my blog. :-)

  5. I'm looking forward to "I've made over 6 digits with my book! AND it's a best seller!!!!"

    Shoot for the stars. ;)

  6. That's a great list! I started blogging after I would have been able to post about some of this so I never did, but I've gotten to post on some wonderful things in my life and I look forward to sharing much more good news in the future.

  7. These look great. I think you should print this list off, tape it up somewhere, then check things off as you accomplish them!

  8. Sherrinda, I'm ready to celebrate 1-8 with you as soon as I see each of those posts on your blog. You've made such great strides. I'm happy for you and proud of you!

  9. LOl...I totally forgot I scheduled this post! Right before I went back to work, I scheduled 2 weeks worth of posts, but I totally forgot about this one!

    I hope we all get to blog about each of these!!! Shoot for the stars, indeed!

    I have another week or two of long hours, then hope to get back on track. You guys rock!

  10. Hi Sherrinda -

    I enjoy interviewing authors. Landing an interview with Jerry B. Jenkins or Catherine Palmer would be neat.

    Of course, I wouldn't mind writing the agent, contract, and book sale posts. :)

    Blessings,
    Susan

  11. I LOVE any type of The Call posts - whether its a call from an agent or a publisher. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I seriously think somebody should compose a book of them. :)

  12. Jessica was my first blog follower, and I will always be grateful to her for starting this outrageously wonderful addiction!

    Nothing to add, dear, unless it's "My (friend, dad, mom, uncle) got saved!"

    We are all very proud of you!

  13. I'm adding #11: I just got my first advance check! Wouldn't that be a dream come true??

    I'm breathlessly anticipating many of the items on this list--too fun!

  14. How about, "I made a best seller list!" Or even "I made the New York Times best seller list!" :)

    Better than that, like Jeanette said, would be to be able to say that someone got saved from reading my book.

  15. Awesome list. They will all get checked off! :O)

  16. What about: The publisher called and requested a multi-book deal.

    Or: Movie rights have been purchased - hired to write the screen play!

    Or: Book hits #1

    :D

  17. Oh, those were great ideas, Kathryn! I'll definitely add those to my list!
