Published Bloggers

*Last updated 12/5/2014

Many of us peck away at our keyboards and upload our prose into the virtual ether because we enjoy writing. Many of us use blogging as a therapeutic outlet for atrocities we’ve endured. Some of us use it as an outlet for both. Other’s have words rattling around in their heads and blogging is a release for that cranial pressure. Others of us use this platform as a container in which to pour our creative juices. Then there are others who are attempting to make a living through various arts and are using blogging as a platform with which to promote our work.

Along this Forrest Gump like journey through the blogosphere I’ve met many amazing people. Some of the people I’ve met are busting their asses to make a living doing what they love. Be it photography, writing, or painting, there are many determined folks out there trying hard to make their dreams come true.

A long time ago, in a lifetime far, far away…I came upon a page composed by fellow blogger, and great bloggy pal, Elyse. She had collected links to books many of her bloggy buddies had published. At the time I was just getting connected to other bloggers and didn’t know any (except maybe one) who had published a book. A year and a half later, I know of many who have published books and I have read quite a few of them.

In the name of plagiarism (or is that imitation and flattery?), I’ve decided to steal borrow Elyse’s idea and link to the books all of my bloggy pals have published. The goal, obviously, is to spread the bloggy love and also to support my friends in their endeavors to become full-time writers. Please check out the books below, and if they pique your curiosity, pick them up. Actually, pick them up no matter what.

TJ Lubrano

TJ Lubrano isn’t a published author, but she is an extremely talented artist. She makes a living painting and drawing and that has to be an amazing feeling. While TJ does a lot of commission work, she does have an Etsy store where she sells her noncommissioned work. Head on over there and support her!!

Goldfish

Twindaddy, as depicted by the massively talented Goldfish.

Goldfish isn’t a published author either (that I know of, but she’s certainly talented enough to be one), but she is a graphic designer and talented artist. She has a Redbubble store where you can purchase her graphics on stickers, shirts, mugs, and other objects. Please check out my aquatic friend’s store and support her arts.


Please support my bloggy friends. Becoming a successful author (or artist) is unfathomably hard and all of these people have a special talent with the written word (or paint brush), hence why I’m doing my small part to help them.

*If you are a blogging buddy of mine and I don’t have your work featured here…shame on me. Come yell at me and I’ll get it included here. I have a slippery mind and I have no doubt I forgot someone.

  3. If I ever have money again, I’m going to buy at least one copy of each of these. Books are my #1 addiction. I hope to one day be added to your wall of fame, but first…edits.

  6. So… whose armor do I have to strip off and then do unspeakable things to the former wearer of said armor to get some love on this here page exactly? And I mean that with all due respect as a struggling writer of both a children’s book and sci-fi… and short stories… and stuff…

  7. You forgot Art from PMAO! For shame! But otherwise, you are a good fella, TD. Do you know Shards of Dubois and Mark Paxson from king midget’s ramblings? Also published authors who travel in these circles. Excellent writers.

  8. That’s a really cool idea, TD.
    I could also suggest Ross Murray and The Hook. (PMAO was mentioned, and I’m sure there are even more.)

    • I reached out to The Hook, but he didn’t answer me. I know he’s offline for the time being because of his injury. And, well, I totally forgot about Ross, which reminds me I forgot about Ned, too. Dammit…

  18. Hello Sweetie,
    Coming out of lurk mode just to let you know I just adore you. Great list of books: FABULOUS to see a few of my fave bloggers who have published! Yay to yo bad-ass self for spreading the blogger love. Now you’ve offered other authors to check out. Through the year I’ve been reading your column I’ve determined the following:

    1. Wow. Dig your taste in tunes.
    2. You’re fighting with every ounce of life to make one for your kids
    3. You are Brave. Among the writers I follow, it seems you and I are the only ones speaking directly about our own cognitive cretinism heh. Have to add El Guapo as he also supports mental health awareness. He knows that people who suffer from Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD, Bi-Polar and every other mental malady not only deal with life, many are talented artists and they keep themselves alive. Meanwhile the majority of folks like myself -Bi-Polar Baby! work at simply getting thru the day. With a f*cking smile.
    4. You’re honest. Know that this is a painful process… and you’re doin’ it.

    That’s it. You rock. I read.
    You deserve some Reader Love!

    • 1. Yay!
      2. My kids are all that remain and all that matter.
      3. Cognitive cretinism! Hah! That’s an interesting term for that. I may steal that…
      4. I don’t know any other way to be. Mom says I used to tell on myself when I was a child.

      Thank you for your support and the amazing comment!

  19. One of these days I’ll be one of those writers. Until then (and even after it happens), I shall admire these published folks and say congrats. It’s a huge honor to be published someplace other than your own blog.
