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.
Every 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!
The 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.
