A Few Blogs to Start the Day

I start every day at the computer reading blogs. All types of blogs: writing blogs, agent blogs, marketing blogs, even blogging blogs. (I know, I know, I read too many blogs--I should be writing!).

I especially like the group blogs (glogs?) where a variety of bloggers participate. Sometimes the groups are organized around a theme, sometimes all the bloggers write for the same publisher, sometimes it's just a bunch of friends with something to say. I'm part of a group blog myself: InkSpot.

Here are just a few of my favorite mystery/suspense group blogs:

The Kill Zone
The Jungle Red Writers
Hey, There's a Dead Guy in the Living Room
Writer Unboxed 
The Outfit: A Collective of Chicago Crime Writers

Check them out! (Even though you should be writing!)

I have no idea if that's really a term that is used in the blogosphere (okay - glogosphere?), but I love it!

I've never glogged before, but it sounds like fun!!! :)

HI Alan,
I've seen your comments on other blogs,so I thought I'd bop on over. Glad I did. Glogs? Great word. Made me smile.

Patricia - Thank you so much for the award! If nothing else, at leest I'm kreativ with mi speling!

Crystal - By gloggy, I think I did make up a new term! I like to make up words and try to sneak them by my critique partners and editor.

Karen - Thanks for stopping by. I love having visitors. And I especially love having visitors who smile!
