The readership of the Proofreader's Parlour continued to grow in 2013 and I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to visit, contribute and comment.
As any regular business blogger knows, it takes commitment to keep a blog vibrant and up-to-date with fresh, high-quality content. There's a lot of thoroughly useful information in the blogosphere, all of which is free to access. However, navigating that space to find what you want is the time-consuming bit! With that in mind I thought I'd provide readers with (a) a short summary of this year's most-read Parlour posts and (b) a list of some of the go-to editorial business blogs that I've found most beneficial to my professional development in 2013.
What you've been reading on the Parlour ...
This is a list of the twenty most-read articles in 2013 (ranked by number of page views). And it's great to see three of my guest writers featuring in the top ten!
What I've been reading elsewhere ...
These are my ten go-to business-development blogs/resource hubs (in alphabetical order). Keeping the list to ten meant I had to leave out some really useful and enjoyable reading provided by editorial colleagues, but I hope this gives a flavour of what's available, especially for the new entrant to the field. (For some of the other excellent sites I regularly visit, scroll down to the blogroll on the Parlour's right-hand sidebar.)
Here's to 2014 and to another year of sharing information and ideas about how to navigate the always fascinating but sometimes bumpy world of editorial freelancing!
