The IWSG and Recent Blogosphere News

 
I am spreading the awesome news instead of sharing my writerly insecurity this month.
 
Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh celebrated two years of hosting the Insecure Writer's Support Group! You united all of us writers under one roof. Thank you for everything, man!
 
He set up the blog with a domain name and secured an awesome team of admins to help run it - Joy Campbell, Michelle Wallace, Joylene Nowell Butler, Susan Gourley/Kelley, L. Diane Wolfe, and Lynda Young.

The site will be a center of support for writers, with tips, encouragement, support, and links. Alex's goal isn’t for the site to be just a database – he wants it to be the database of writing databases, with links to places like Elizabeth’s Writer’s Knowledge Database, Query Tracker, and WriteOnCon, plus tons of other links and listings of resources. It will also feature a weekly informative post or two, plus house the main list for the IWSG.

We are aiming for an October launch and the team will be working hard to put it together to benefit YOU.

And you can help us – email Alex any sites or resources that benefit writers so we can include them on the IWSG site.
