If you’re looking for inspiration as an author, sometimes reading the thoughts of those who have already had a taste of success or have a wealth of experience can really help. Many of these people also like to share their knowledge (which is great for everyone) and do so on a regular basis via their blogs.
But which blogs should you take a look at? I mean, blogs are not exactly a new thing, so your choice can be a little overwhelming.
