This post will be directed more at the writerly followers (obvs 😛 ). I let my personal inbox get to an atrocious amount of 43 unread emails. I am one of those people who like to have a clean inbox, and really likes getting rid of the red numbers above the apps on my iPhone.
Today whilst I was reading blog posts and websites and newsletters (and Christmas present invoices) I started reading Natasha Lester’s latest newsletter. It gave me inspiration for this blog post because she’s one of my most favourite newsletter writers. I love receiving her emails because they informative and I’m never bored.
But I do also receive more awesome emails in my inbox. Here’s a list of five of my favourite:
1. Natasha Lester
Since I’ve already mentioned her, I’ll keep going. Natasha’s emails are great for encouraging writers to start and to keep going. Natasha (as well as Allison in point 2) always makes sure to have very Pinterest-able pictures with each blog post. They always have text over their pictures, telling the audience what the post is about. A big YES in my books (or should I say boards? 😛 ).
2. Allison Tait
I discovered Allison through the Australian Writers’ Centre and her emails are a delight as well. She provides lots of informative links, and is particularly insightful on the subject of fitting writing in. I also love hearing how her children’s series The Mapmaker Chronicles is doing.
3. The Write Life
Although I don’t always read their emails as much of their information relates to freelance writers and I’m a novelist, I still think they are definitely worth a mention. The posts I do read about novel writing are often very informative and easy to follow. I also really love participating in the comments section of their posts. Because of their wide readership many people comment, often with agreeances or disagreeances (I don’t think that’s a word, but I’m making it one! 😀 ), making for an entertaining and informative read.
4. Writer’s Relief
I’m not subscribed to any of their services (so I can guarantee this isn’t a paid endorsement), but I love the blog posts they email in their newsletter. They apply to novelists, freelancer writers and often are broad enough to suit any type of writing. They also have beautiful Pinterest friendly pictures.
5. Web Design Relief
This is another sector of Writer’s Relief, who send their own emails. They are full of helpful and practical hints on your website and platform.
