Best Bloggers Blogging in 2015

Thanks to Chris Graham, The Story Reading Ape, for creating this handy-dandy award badge!

I’ve already given you a wrap-up of the best books I read in 2015. As well as being a reader and an author, I’m also a blogger who promotes other authors and doles out advice and information on all manner of interesting areas, to me and to my readers. Throughout this past year I have become “acquainted” with other like-minded bloggers (some of whom are also authors), have followed and read their blogs, commented on them, and reblogged their posts a number of times. Some of these bloggers came to my attention in the first place, because they offered to read and review my books or gave me promotion by way of an interview or a guest post on their blogs. In turn, I met a number of other bloggers through that first set – people who commented on those posts about me or who won a copy of my book through a blog-run contest. As well, I’ve been following a number of blogs written by authors I have promoted on Reading Recommendations, my own author promotion blog. (Please note too that, not surprisingly, a number of these authors have written books that also made it to my Best Books Read in 2015 list!)

Please do click on the links and check out these great bloggers, if you have not yet discovered them yourselves. Follow them! Some offer promotion and review books or interview authors, many post valuable information on writing and the book biz, even about food and restaurants, and not just a few are also authors in their own right and have been featured on my blog (I’ve linked to their promotion pages), a couple are editors, and there are a couple of longtime personal friends (meaning, I’ve actually met them face-to-face!) in this list, as well.
