So Far, 2018 is a Success
2018 is starting off as an exciting year at Two Drops of Ink. We recently won an award from PositiveWriter.Com, along with 100 Best Website for Writers from TheWriteLife.Com and Top 100 Literary Blogs 2018 by FeedSpot.com. These awards bring our total to nine.
Planning for Today – Way Back Then
Scott Biddulph and I want to thank all of our contributors, readers, followers, families, my cat, and his dogs. Without any of these components, Two Drops of Ink would still just be a topic of conversation between us at Inman Perk.
Given that we only had one laptop between us, I’d write in my notebook, and we’d envision a blog that was welcoming, professional, and most importantly, a collaborative effort.
We created Two Drops of Ink as a way to give indie writers and authors a new platform. This has evolved into more than we hoped, and we are grateful to all.
Our Diverse Contributors
Our contributing writers are Ph.D.s, non-English speaking, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, spiritual, male, female, published, and not, young, and old, first-time writers and seasoned wordsmiths from:
- New South Wales
- New York
- New Zeland
- San Juan Islands
- South Africa
- The Netherlands
The diversity of our writers is what makes this truly a collaborative site. We’ve achieved the goal of creating an environment where all writers feel free to submit.The diversity of our writers is what makes this truly a collaborative site.

However, we also wanted to expand that spirit of collaboration and help published authors reach a wider audience. We accomplished that with The Book Store where we highlight traditionally and indie published authors.
Planning for Tomorrow – Today
Our future goals? What bar have we set for ourselves? Where will we go from here?
We’ll continue to publish quality poems, prose, and better writing advice, but we’ll also keep you informed about agents looking for new authors. We’re looking forward to another writing contest, and we’ll promote more writers and authors through The Sunday Spotlight and The Book Store Shoutout.
So, if your state or country isn’t mentioned on the list, that just means there’s a place for you.
That’s right, you are the missing piece, and if writing for an award-winning blog doesn’t excite you, then here’s some virtual chocolate as our way of saying, “Thank you.”
