In my immersion into a more aggressive writing life, I enjoy reading interesting blogs. That's how I found this bulletin board.

Good active blogs in my genre and on getting some traction with agents and publishers seem to be elusive creatures.

What blogs have you writers out there found of use and/or enjoyable?

A good podcast that I enjoy is "Writing Excuses". it is fifteen minutes long and each episode deals with a different aspect of writing or publishing with a focus on SF&F.
Good Guests and the hosts are all published authors.

Most authors today have blogs that are popular. I also follow a lot of authors' twitter feeds. John Scalzi is my favorite author blogger (he tweets some, but not a lot), and reading Neil Gaiman's twitter feed is really interesting (life of a superstar writer.)

If you have a favorite author and the author is still writing things today (many of my favs are dead, sigh) then odds are good that the author has a blog. Be forewarned, though, upon finding one favorite author's blog, I discovered that she wasn't what I had dreamed up in my imagination. Nothing wrong, just different enough that it was unsettling. I don't follow her blog very closely as a result.

I've taken an interest in Frederik Pohl's blog:


Though we're as far apart in politics as any pair of US citizens can be, I've long enjoyed his work. I only learned of the existence of his blog recently---I'm not a big blog follower---and I look forward to other entries (political differences or not).

This isn't quite what you asked for, but each week on my blog I post links to publishing news and writing advice that I've found on other people's blogs that I think is useful for aspiring or newly published writers. You might find some blogs you like through those links.
