Due to other commitments (client editing, my writing, competition judging, Writers’ Forum column etc.,
I’m not currently taking any guest items but will update this page when I am.
If you’ve been interviewed on another WordPress site, then feel free to email me the link and I’ll gladly reblog it.
Below is a list of some of the rebloggable* writing-related WordPress blogs I’ve come across in my travels (*rebloggable = WordPress.com sites with a ‘reblog’ option at the top (when logged in), hosted by WordPress rather than a third-party organisation).
Do you have a (predominantly) writing-related WordPress blog that you’d be happy for me to reblog from? If so, please email me.

Thanks for the add Morgen. Appreciated. Of course I am very happy to try and help others and as you know I just love your blog and all that you do for writers too. I do hope they also know you write as well, and that your work is available too. 🙂
Thank you, Jane. 2014 is definitely all about me and getting more of my writing finished and ‘out there’ starting with tonight’s Morgen’s Monday Musings. 🙂
Fingers crossed. You deserve success and I am sure all your hard work will pay off soon. I am sending positive vibes for you this year. 🙂
Thank you for the add, it is an honour, I have to confess I don’t always read the short story ones now as I rather enjoy having you read them to me via the Podcast 😀
No worries (as the Ozzies would say). I enjoy recording them… am a week late with last Sunday’s 😦 but they’ll definitely be up this Sunday.
Maybe I could post / record one of yours someday soon?
Hi and thank you so much for posting my blog here along with this wonderful list of writing-related blogs!
You’re very welcome, Rohini. I look forward to posting your short story and anything else you’d like to do. M
Hi Morgen, Thanks for adding my site to your list. I have been through all the pages here and think you have a great collection of links. Very informative 🙂
You’re very welcome, Wendy. Glad it’s useful.
Thank you Morgen!
Does it have to be a wordpress.com hosted site (as opposed to a WordPress blog on a different server)?
Hello Perrorist. This page is aimed at reblogging writing-related content so as long as you have a reblog option when someone’s logged in (which on http://perrorist.wordpress.com you do) that’s fine, although your blog doesn’t have any content yet so that would help. 🙂
That’s not my blog, Morgen, just something I set up ages ago to get a WordPress id. I’m not familiar with the concept of reblogging. However, after checking into it, I see that it’s a feature of both wordpress.com and twitter.
Standalone WordPress sites can use a trackback option, but as that is mostly taken advantage of by spammers, most sites don’t bother. There may be a plugin that accomplishes what reblogging does. I’ll have a look around.
Thanks for your response.
