On Twitter, every Friday is “Follow Friday” where users list the people they suggest you follow. I thought I’d make today Follow Friday on my blog and recommend some of the blogs I’ve started reading in the past few months.
Even though I’ve written one book and I’m working on another, I still find the publishing industry to be inscrutable. The Intern is a hilarious blog written in the third person by an intern at a New York publishing house. It’s become one of my must reads, not only for the laughs, but for the insider’s insight into how the publishing industry really works.
I have been a fan of Wray Herbert’s other blog, We’re Only Human for awhile, so I was happy to learn he writes regularly about the “quarks of the human mind” and how they affect our lives for this site too.
I started reading Stepcase Lifehacks when I began freelancing full time. As their site say, lifehacks are “any hacks, tips and tricks that get things done quickly by automating, increase productivity and organizing.” Some articles aren’t relevant to me, so I clear them without reading, but they update often so I always find something helpful posted during the week. This is also where I found out about the tax program I’m using, Outright.
Another publishing blog I discovered recently, this blog is updated daily with informative articles about the publishing industry from an agent’s perspective. There is lots of information and advice to be found here.
