Must Read Blog Award, presented by Alex Hurst

Must-Read Blog Award: Doorway Between Worlds

There are thousands of blogs across the Internet. Many are beyond exceptional, balancing content and community in ways that are to be admired. And some deserve more love.

Must Read Blog Award, presented by Alex HurstEvery author, at some point, will cross paths with an editor. Experiences vary, and editors’ personalities run just as diverse a gamut as any group of creative, intellectual individuals. For this month’s award, I’d like to talk about Sue Archer at Doorway Between Worlds, a wonderful editor and blogger based in Canada, who writes anecdotes and essays on clear communication, while waiting for her “doorway” to another world to open.

I have been an avid reader of Sue’s blog for well over a year now, but found myself voraciously consuming her posts this year, after her amazing series on Rogue Words for the 2015 Blogging in April A-Z Challenge. She is kind and courteous, with a fun and soft touch to her editing tips, teaching many, but never preaching. When I have a grammar concern, she is the first person I turn to for advice.

In a recent interview she conducted with me for her Conversation Corner, I learned a lot more about her, and also myself, and about how I communicate. More importantly, I would say I made a long-term blogging, professional, and casual friend. Sue’s blog is a safe, stimulating environment for any who love to talk (I’m assuming that applies for anyone reading this!) and if you need an editor, she’s a wonderful woman to work with. You can hire her here.

As always, with any blog I showcase with this award, I offer a few of posts that have grabbed my attention and have never really left my mind. Have a look, and be sure to start a conversation – Sue is more than ready for it!

thelistThe Must-Read Blog Award is not a chain award. There are no questions to answer, no people to nominate, and no blog posts to write. It is a badge of recognition, which also includes a very small monetary award. I am the only person that curates the List, though I do accept suggestions.

  1. I discovered her (and you!) shortly before the A to Z challenge and am very glad I did. More than one of her posts helped me with some professional writing I was working on at the time, all with a great sense of humor too 😀

  2. I love her blog toooooo! Her A to Z was one of my faves. so glad you are doing this Alex. And for reminding me to get back and look at it (I fell off my own blogging and my blog reading for some other commitments lately).

    1. I think a lot of people did. It’s one of those projects that can result in significant burnout if not done with careful moderation. My first year I didn’t blog again for three months! But this year I paced myself a little better.

    1. I totally agree. 🙂 I was more than happy to give her an early slot. It’s hard not to, when I can’t bring myself to skip any of her posts!

    1. It was no problem at all. I’m still utterly smitten by the idea and title of your book…. academic reading is getting in the way of pleasure reading lately, though! I WILL read it at some point, though!

  3. Oh, yes, the bells are peeling with joy over the announcement of Sue’s new editor for hire service, and her blog has been a go to cure all for me on countless occasions. I owe that woman a thousand thank yous for helping me get so many of my manuscripts in much better shape.
    A lovely nod of recognition, Alex, for a woman who truly contributes something wonderfuly worthy in the world of writing.

    1. It does not surprise me at all that you would already know of Sue’s blog and made use of her knowledge and wisdom, Shelley! Your writing is super clear; no minced words at all. 🙂
