The Ten-Minute Blog Post

“Woke up, fell out of bed. Dragged a comb across my head. Found my way downstairs and drank a cup. And looking up, I noticed I was late…”

What does a writer who has committed to blogging every day in the month of August do when she spent the hours from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. working on a freelance job, and now has only 10 minutes to write a blog post?

Point you toward three bloggers who spent more than ten minutes on their posts today (with content to prove it!):

1. Meet the Peas Interview Series

Kate Grace has graciously πŸ˜‰ offered to interview agent Bree Ogden’s clients, and you can read her latest interview, with Randy Staples, here (the questions are fresh and fun!).

2. A Glimpse into a Typical Day for a Full-Time Writer

Sandi Johnson shares a typical day on her blog, The Blue Inkwell. The post was prompted by her father’s well-meaning query, “But are you making any money at it?”

3. Wed’s Word and a Little Poetry: The Barista

I always look forward to Christi Craig’s “Wednesday Word” post, where she uses Today’s Word from to write a piece of flash fiction (or, today, poetry).

The Good News: 20 straight days! The Bad News: My inbox is fuller than yesterday.

  1. That’s a great blogging trick! Recommending others’ blogs is a wonderful way to participate as a team player, plus a good way to promote our fellow bloggers! You are AWESOME! #blogboost

    • Martha, thank you! The funny thing is that when I wrote the post title, I had no idea what I was going to write about. πŸ˜‰ I love promoting bloggers and other writers.

  2. Thanks for the mention, Lisa.

    I was just thinking of you today, in awe of how you’ve kept up with posting every day and written excellent, informative, and fun posts…and I’m not just saying that because you mentioned me πŸ™‚

    I mean it. Amazing.

    • Christi, what a wonderful way to greet the day. Thank you so much! I’m on the lookout now for that gorgeous barista.

      It looks like we will meet IRL soon. Woohoo! πŸ™‚
