Meet the Blogathoners

Posté par le 6 Mai 2012 dans Actualité, English Posts | 12 commentaires

Since the vast majority of Blogathoners blogs in English, I’ll write this post in English too.

This year, there are over 200 particpants in the Wordcount Blogathon. Participating myself, it’s not always easy to find time to blog and to read & comment on others’. In these first few Blogathon days, here are those who retained my attention (I’m sure there will be tons of others as days go by).


Michelle RafterIndependent business editor, reporter and blogger Michelle Rafter posts news, tips and advice for self-employed writers & has been hosting the Wordcount Blogathon challenge since 2008.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because it’s great to know we can find great ideas & support on this challenge).



Lisa CarterLiterary translator & writer Lisa Carter posts about the art & business of literary translation. She’s the one who inspired me to participate in this Blogathon challenge and I can already thank her for the wonderful moments I’m spending there.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because this is a great idea to open up and improve your translation).



AleksandraSerbian linguist Aleksandra Milcic Radovanovic posts about translation and blogging.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because it is about some difficulty we often encounter in translation).




Rachel WardLiterary translator Rachel Ward posts every day about one or several children’s books in translation, following the alphabetical order. Until now, I noticed many French titles, which is nice & interesting.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because it talks about the famous Cinderella’s « pantoufle de vair/verre »)


Freelance translator & writer Marie-Louise posts about being a freelance translator, the translation industry & learning languages.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because it gives you a realistic eye on what translation freelancing is about).


Sheila CallahanFreelance journalist, writer, editor, translator and teacher Sheila Callahan posts about… many many things.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because I’m sure that admitting your own weaknesses helps you get stronger).



Annette GendlerNon fiction writer Annette Gendler posts about writing, teaching and publishing (among other things).

=> One recent post I liked reading (because I find she might have a point in there, but I’m not so sure actually…).



Mridu KullharAward-winning freelance journalist Mridu Khullar posts thoughts about freelancing & life.

=> One recent post I liked reading (because it’s sooo true).
