12 like-worthy Facebook pages for writers

September 26, 2012 |  by  |  Social media exploration  |  , ,

 

Let’s admit it. We spend ridiculous amounts of time on Facebook. Mashable declared “Facebook” the most searched term last year, and the ubiquitous ‘Like’ button sets a widely accepted standard of, well, likeability. What does that mean for writers?

With oodles of author/writing/word Facebook pages out there, it’s surprisingly difficult to find a consolidated list. Thus, I hunted. I’ve sought them out based on a few criteria: Do I literally ‘Like’ it myself? Is the page content uplifting and educational, tidbits I’m happy to see in my stream? Is it beneficial for those of us who love wrangling words?

After searching, here’s my curation of like-worthy pages for writers. While I could rank them most-liked, I decided to give underdogs/newbies the spotlight and put them at the top. My comments are in italics, and each page has handy hyperlinks so you can give them some ‘Like’ love too. Ready, go!

“The world is full of good people. We’re introducing you to them, one interview at a time.” Filled with uplifting content, this page has made me smile many times. I featured Amy, the lovely founder of GPOE, here.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Much like when I lose track of time when browsing a dictionary (especially a translation dictionary), I just spent a ton of time reading grammar rules on Grammar Girl.

    By the way, here’s one of my favorite videos about grammar (a grammar Nazi, that is): http://youtu.be/N4vf8N6GpdM
    WARNING: In the last 10 seconds of the clip there’s a bit of fake gore.

  2. Thank you so much for the inclusion, Crystalee! How very kind of you! I’ll be sure to check out the others on this list, too! Thanks for compiling this for everyone!
