Yes, we've moved to this domain on Weebly from Blogger/Blogspot, and you can sign up to receive notifications of our latest blog posts through Follow.it.
The old Feedburner system on the previous host is dying out, and it's giving bloggers no choice but to get creative. Additional features are now available, which Feedburner didn't have. For example, you can define filters and more delivery channels to receive your news via Telegram, news page, et cetera. Numerous other options are to follow soon. Here is our updated sign-up page, with the new service. https://follow.it/marie-lavender-s-writing-in-the-modern-age-blog-blog-posts?action=followPub&filter
So, to make a long story short, Follow.it is a good Feedburner replacement.

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! :)

Writing in the Modern Age 2018 Year in Review
Hi, everyone! For our 472nd post, I’d like to take a moment to offer an overview regarding some of our blog’s events during the year.
Since its guest inception in 2013, Writing in the Modern Age has taken on a real life of its own! What began as a haven for writers at any stage of their careers to seek out advice and encouragement in their endeavors has also evolved into a place where readers can potentially find their new favorite author in any genre. We still offer writing tips, of course, but through interviews (author or character), special blog events and our Author’s Bookshelf Feature, readers can discover ever more about the authors and books featured on the blog. With 55 posts this year and nearly 70 participating authors, I’d say we’ve accomplished a lot!
Thank you all so much for visiting the blog in 2018, whether as loyal followers or newcomers! It was such a pleasure to have you here!
Also, many thanks to our great writers, service companies, and talented authors who wrote guest posts, visited in interviews, or participated in giveaways and book features!
Below I am including information about all the guests or authors featured in 2018. Each author/guest blogger will be listed with a link to the most relevant site or page to discover more information about their work. You’ll also find each author’s latest book cover, as well as his or her location in the world. What reader hasn’t wondered where his or her favorite author calls home? The covers will be accompanied by a purchase link. Additionally, I will add links to the blog posts in which each individual contributed this year. You can view any posts you might’ve missed!
Sound good? Awesome, let’s get started. ;)
Without further ado, here are our guests from 2018!
