Some bloggers don’t want you to know they have competitors. Some bloggers don’t want you to like the competition. Not us. We want you to know that we think you should visit all the blogs in the niche including the competition. Even the blogs and bloggers we don’t particularly like.
- Other bloggers have stuff to share too
- Other bloggers have stuff to teach too
- Other bloggers have communities to enjoy too
- I don’t believe in competition. I believe in colleagues and collaborators
If there’s one thing I’ve made perfectly clear, it’s that I’m not an expert. You can learn so much from everyone else too. So please, visit the competition.
In fact, I’m going to list as many competitors as possible. If you can think of others. do add them into the comments:

Thanks for this list. I was just saying that I need to read more writing blogs and socialize more online. I checked them all out and added the ones I liked to my Google reader.
I appreciate you sharing information about other writing help websites. I checked out a few of them before clicking on number 35 (Undress for Success). It was a real eye opener. I imagined it to be about writing in one’s pj’s, well, I was wrong. Anyway, now I understand why they are considered competition! LOL!

Thanks for including WordCount. I agree with you about thinking of fellow writing bloggers are community rather than competition. Because really, your success doesn’t take away from mine, it enhances the entire writing community. And collaboration is a good thing, especially for sole proprietors like freelance writers and entrepreneurial journalists.

Thanks for including me on the list Deb!
I hardly think of my blog as competition to Freelance Writing Jobs, but I appreciate the thought. 🙂
I’ll definitely be visiting some of these others.

Just FYI, that second link to about.com is broken. It is missing an ‘e’. Currently links to freelancewrit.about.com it should go to freelancewrite.about.com.
Great list BTW.

That was a great resourceful post Deb.
I have been dead in the head since my mothers death back in February and actually for quite sometime before that.
