Writing in the Modern Age 2019 Year in Review:
Big Reflections - Past and Present
Hi, everyone! A year I imagined would crawl right by, in fact, did
not. Instead it flew so fast, I suffered vertigo several times. ;)Tomorrow we’ll adjust our calendars to reflect that life has changed in a blink, welcoming 2020. For this year’s annual review post, I’d like to commemorate the evolution of Writing in the Modern Age. Six years ago, I opened the blog to guest authors and it’s been a wild ride ever since. WritModAge grew from the initial seed of a place to help other writers at any stage of their careers, all the way to not just that, but also a site where readers can comfortably discover their new, favorite authors! Through author and character interviews, book and writing service interviews, guest articles, book spotlights and mega giveaways, it has become a unique resource for writers and readers alike. So…give a warm round of applause to all 350 content writers and authors who visited us via various events from 2013 to 2019. However, there were 104 guest writers this year alone. That’s awesome! :)

Cool new feature!
The fact is…our policy has changed considerably, at least for a while. Check out our 'Blog Policy' for more information about the types of features offered, how you can purchase a guest spot, my policy on review requests, and rules for guest writers. Starting from 2021, I was charging for some types of posts. Of course, there is never a fee for a guest article, as long as you adhere to the blog's theme. I also will not charge for big multi-author events which I host (these are giveaways or participation questions, and it's obvious what materials you're providing). If you'd like to submit a guest book review (no, I don't write book reviews, please don't ask me), I will always accept those and not charge you a fee at all. Starting in 2022, I WILL NO LONGER BE posting new release features, cover reveals, Author's Bookshelf features, author interviews, character interviews, and poetry spotlights. I am far too overwhelmed with other work to do constant blog posts. I'll still be writing my own articles sometimes and hosting multi-author special features. For companies that can afford a sponsored post, I'm willing to discuss a reasonable quote for a specialized article which fits within the blog's theme (No blatant promotions). Email me at
if you wish to participate in a unique post. Feel free to approach me with your creative ideas about a blog post. Slots at Writing in the Modern Age are always first come, first served.
