Group Blog

Do you want to blog, but you find the task daunting? No fears!

A great blogging option is when a group of writers or bloggers unite together to create a community blog.  These are known as group-authored blogs. Each contributing writer can be assigned one day a week (or month) to add a blog post.  Often opportunities arise for guest bloggers too. This is pretty much the way WrittenVoicesBlog.com has grown since 2006.

I really enjoy visiting blogs where you can read a variety of posts from aspiring to veteran writers. Below are a few blogs that follow this model. I have included the blogging platform used in [ ]. I write suspense, so I follow quite a few suspense and mystery blogs. Just in case you notice! :)
