Blogs I’ve enjoyed in 2014

Every now and then, I have to remind myself how lucky I am to have such a great audience here on the blog. Each year, the numbers keep going up, and it always surprises and pleases me. As I write this post, the blog has passed 1.2 million page views this year, and has seen nearly 600,000 visitors pass through its turnstiles. I am grateful for each and every one of them. So it only seems appropriate that I let you know about the various blogs that I have been reading this year, and I urge you to check them out at your leisure, if they suit your tastes as well.

New in 2014

Here are some blogs that were new to me1 in 2014:

Old reliables that I still enjoy

  • John Scalzi’s Whatever blog. John’s blog is the example I strive for  on my own blog. I like his clarity of thought, and the wide range of topics that he covers.
  • SF Signal. My source for genre news, and pretty everything else when it comes to science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
  • Brain Pickings. Eclectic blog where I find something interesting and/or useful every week.
  • Buffer Blog. Great insight into a startup company.
  • Bud Sparhawk’s blog. A great counterpoint to my own (generally upbeat) posts on a writer’s life. Bud is a far more successful writer than I am, and it is fascinating to read about his approach to the craft.

And in 2015…?

Any suggestions for blogs to read in 2015? Drop the in the comments. And thanks once again for reading.

  1. But not necessarily new to everyone else


    1. David, I use Feedly as my RSS (blog) reader. I’ve been using it for well over a year, and I think it is great. It works really well with Pocket and Evernote. I’ve written about my process here.

      I am a Netflix user, so thanks for the recommendation.
