Two Opportunities to Nominate Your Favorite Writing Blogs

It seems to be the season for 'best writing blog' awards at the moment. There are at least two such high-profile contests running right now.

The first is the annual Top 10 Blogs for Writers contest on Michael Stelzner's Writing White Papers blog.

It's the fourth year this well-respected contest has been held. Anyone is welcome to nominate their favorite writing blog (one only) by commenting on the relevant post. Nominations close on 11 September 2009.

The other is the Editor Unleashed Top 25 Writing Blogs contest on Maria Schneider's Editor Unleashed blog. In this one you can nominate any number of blogs (including your own) in any of five categories: Fiction Writing, Freelance Writing, Creativity, Marketing and Social Media, and Publishing Trends.

Nominations for this contest close a little sooner, on 1 September 2009. The top nominations will then be posted on the blog, and readers will be invited to vote for seven days to determine the top five sites in each category.

Obviously, I'd be honored if anyone would like to nominate my own blog in either contest; but my main reason for mentioning them here is because of the great resources you can discover just by reading the nominations. I've added quite a few blogs from both these contests to my feed reader already. To me this is really more valuable than finding out what the 'winning' blogs are. Though clearly, winning either of these contests will be a considerable feather in the caps of the bloggers concerned!
