Excellent SEN Blogs to follow: Part 1.


These blogs are those that I have visited often and found great ideas, positivity or inspiration for my own writing from. Due to the nature of the blogosphere there are likely to be many great blogs I have missed, some great bloggers are reticent to promote their writing. If you know of a great blog please add it to the comments I will be doing a second post later this month.
