Will you Nominate me for the Writer’s Digest Best Websites for Writers List?

Every year Writer’s Digest compiles a list of the top 101 best websites for authors.  This is an authoritative list of all the best “writing communities, publishing resources, agent advice, writing craft gurus, games for word nerds, genre fiction resources” sites online where authors can use to advance their career and improve their craft.

I didn’t use to care about this kind of list (it’s usually not published online, and I’ve never even paid attention to it). But now that I have decided to start giving a damn again about the blog, I realize that I need to raise my profile by getting on lists like this one.

And so I have a favor to ask of you.

Writer’s Digest is taking nominations for this year’s list, and I would be really grateful if you would help support the blog by nominating it for the list.

The Digital Reader is the leading news blog for indie authors, so much so that there have been times that other sites could have started their weekly roundup posts with “here’s what Nate reported this week”. Not only do I regularly break news like the Bowker and Createspace hacks, I also provide a unique commentary on the industry that cannot be found elsewhere.

I should be on this list, and I need your help to get there.

Can you please go over Writer’s Digest and nominate me?

    Will do Nate. Already submitted and waiting on moderation. The Digital Reader definitely deserves to be on this list. https://imgur.com/BfJ5GMl

    All the best!

      I know! I registered to recommend a few blogs,and it was a hassle.

    I sent in the recommendation via Twitter.

    Is there a way to view a list of all 101 for past years? I could only find articles on 10 or 8, according to some specific category of website rather than the list in full.

    1. Nate Hoffelder3 December, 2018

      not that I could tell – for some years you can find the list as a PDF, but it’s not online anywhere

      yes, I agree that it really is weird for a “best websites” list to only be available offline
