Blog Link of the Week: Neil Gaiman

Pens and pencils on my desk

Pens and pencils on my desk

I spend a lot of time reading. Big surprise big surprise since I am an English teacher. One thing I have noticed since starting this blog is that I read more and more material that is online. Whether it is surfing around looking for inspiration, or information, or interesting blogs, the list of blogs and sites I like to revisit continues to grow and grow. With that in mind, I thought I would start sharing some of my favorite links to various locations around the web. This post is the first in what I intend to be a regular, weekly feature.

As a reader, English teacher, and wanna-be writer, words hold a special power over me. Well, saying that it is the words that have the power is probably a bit misleading. The real power comes from the ideas–and the transmitting of those ideas from one person to another through markings on a page, or screen. It should come as no surprise then that writers grab my attention rather easily. Some more than others. Professional writers who give us a glimpse into a life filled with writing usually make it into my bookmarks or favorites folder. And that is where I am going to start this new weekly feature, with the author Neil Gaiman.

Here is the link to Gaiman’s blog: Neil Gaiman’s Journal. His official website can be found here: neilgaiman.com. I must admit that I didn’t really visit either of those two sites until I started following Gaiman on Twitter.

Gaiman frequently tweets and updates his blog. So, getting a glimpse into the life of a professional writer is pretty easy and entertaining with his tweets and posts. He covers just about everything–from his current projects to things that inspire him.

So, whether you are looking for inspiration, insight,  or entertainment, visiting Neil Gaiman’s blog is a sure win.

Which writers have blogs that you like to visit? Which authors do you follow on Twitter?

As always, please feel free to leave a comment, ask a question, give some advice, or tell me to shut up. If you like this post, or blog, please follow it on Facebook or Twitter, subscribe to it, or share it with a friend. The more, the merrier.

  3. Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded
    your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet
    hosting provider at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

  4. I intended to create you one very small note in order to give thanks yet
    again on the striking thoughts you have documented here.
    It has been quite seriously generous with people like you to
    supply unhampered precisely what a few people could possibly have marketed for an electronic book in order to make some profit for their own end, and
    in particular now that you could possibly
    have tried it in case you wanted. These techniques
    also worked like a good way to realize that other people online have similar passion like my very own to grasp significantly more when it comes to this condition.
    Certainly there are some more enjoyable moments
    in the future for individuals that discover your blog.

  5. Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
