Pay It Forward

Today is the day of the Pay It Forward Blogfest. Basically, the idea is to link to blogs you enjoy so other people who read your blog, might find other blogs they might enjoy. Or, in their own words....

"Here is how the blogfest will actually work: The idea is to introduce everyone to everyone else. We want this to be an easy post that allows you to meet and follow as many other bloggers as you can. In your post, we would like you to please list, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading, but that you suspect may fly under the radar of a lot of other bloggers. Or they can be famous blogs, as long as they're awesome.

But don't stop there! Certainly visit and follow all the blogs that are featured in people's posts the day of the blogfest, but those don't have to be the only blogs you visit. You can visit everyone who enters in on the fun, and signs up on the linky list. In the interest of time you don't even have to leave comment. You can just follow, and come back another time. After all, we all know we don't have time to visit every blog we enjoy every single day."

First up. Been Writing? This is Jolene Perry's blog and is tremendously entertaining. Her first book has just come out this week, so head over there and find out about her journey.

Secondly, the logline queen herself, Holly Bodger. She has been an absolute legend the past few weeks, helping writers write loglines that will capture attention.

And thirdly, my all time favorite blog for sheer entertainment value. I've mentioned it here before, but you can't really go past it: Infamous Potatoes.

I could actually go on all day since there are so many fantastic blogs out there, and so many that I read almost every day. But start with these ones for now....
