The Top 50 Australian Blogs for Writers by Copywrite updated again

I seem to be on elastic between 11 and 9. What am I on about? The Copywrite Top 50 Australian Blogs for Writers list has been updated again. The first time it came out I was in at number 9, the next one I’d dropped to 11, third time around I was back up to 9. Now it’s been updated once more and I’ve returned to position 11 on the list. The weird thing is that the blogs in all the places around me change all over the place. Maybe I’ll just try to claim positions 9, 10 and 11 as permanent territory and declare it a nation state.

Anyway, it’s an honour and very satisfying to see that my blog is still up there. It’s also very exciting to see my friend Joanna Penn of The Creative Penn climbing ever higher. She’s at number 4 this time. And also, fellow AHWA member Benjamin Solah has climbed an impressive 12 places up to number 13.

Other cool people in the list (either top 50 or runners up) include Merrilee Faber, Brenton Tomlinson, Gillian Polack, Trudi Canavan, Margo Lanagan, Lee Battersby and many more. It’s great to see so many genre fiction writers having an impact on the net this way.

Congratulations to all!

  1. Thanks for the shoutout Alan! Definitely looks like the area around 10 is your stamping ground. Time to put up some curtains and buy a comfy armchair?

  2. There you go – slowing down the number of times I post and not doing anything to promote myself has finally dropped me off the list.

    No, I’m not proud – just a statement of fact.

    I think it’s funny that the number of weekly unique visitors to Musings continues to be steadily climbing, and yet I’ve plummeted on this list. Do I have to remove the award GIF from the blog now?

    Congrats to every one who made it, and thanks for the mention (and link).

  3. BT – You were in the top 50 before, so you very much deserve to continue displaying that badge as far as I’m concerned. Who knows, you might rise up again yet.

  4. Absolutely – email me.

    And yeah, it’s not a competition. I own the 9 through 11 range. I’m happy with that. 🙂

  5. Yup, I wouldn’t want people to start treating it like a competition – more an indicator of how well everyone is doing in context with everyone else. A few people saw significant growth this time around yet either stayed the same or dropped down. This I put down to more new blogs coming on board and also how fast everyone else is moving upwards in relation.

    Blog writing can be like a never ending horse race, sometimes. You can’t slow down and someone is always ready to overtake you.

  6. “I wouldn’t want people to start treating it like a competition – more an indicator of how well everyone is doing in context with everyone else.”

    Sounds like a competition to me! 🙂 These things are inherently flawed for many reasons but your list is certainly one of the most comprehensive. Thanks for all the hard work.
