The Bookshop Blog is an online publication that I personally write for because I have a passion for antiquarian books, but their primary focus is on all things related to bookshops. And while the compensation may be most appropriate for newer writers, the topic is what true bibliophiles dream about... being surrounded by what we love most...lots of books, endless halls of books.
The news today is that they're currently seeking new contributors. And I am pleased to give my personal recommendation as a writer to freelancers everywhere and encourage you to not only read The Bookshop Blog but consider writing for this publication... they indeed respect their writers and value the contributions they made.
Here's the post released today from Bruce K. Hollingdrake:
