39 Weeks: 39 Blogs Everyone Should Follow In 2017 – Week 3: Debby Gies – D. G. Kaye Writer

One of the best things I discovered when I started this blog is that the blogging world is full of authors. Rewind back just over 50 years and my dream of one day becoming a published author was born.

39 Weeks: 39 Blogs Everyone Should Follow In 2017

Today, the 3rd of the 39 blogs I’ll be recommending to you over the course of 2017, is the blog of somebody who has offered and given me so much support and encouragement that if it were chocolate, I’d have enough of the sweet stuff to feed the whole world for over one-hundred years (I may keep a few bars of milk chocolate for myself, though).

D. G. Kaye is a published Canadian author, writer and blogger, known to many as Debby Gies. Debby’s blog is one of the most informative blogs I have read. Check out her ‘about me’ page by clicking here.

Debby isn’t afraid when it comes to sharing, writing and publishing blogging tipsself-publishing tips, social media tips, and even tips on subjects such as cleaning up your Amazon links and how to autograph your books from across the miles. She’s full of ideas, as her blog posts show, and attracts many readers from all over the world.

The author of five books (and currently in the process of writing two more), Debby always has time for her readers. She reads and answers comments left on her blog posts with lightning speed; something which she has every right in priding herself on. She’s also a blogger who visits, reads and comments on other people’s blog posts; so expect to see a lot of her around the blogging world. Click here to check out Debby’s Amazon author page and details of all her current books.

A keen promoter of other authors’ works, Debby also runs a guest post feature, ‘Who has a new book?’, where authors can showcase their latest book and answer some of her questions. I had the pleasure of having a post published on Debby’s blog in December. Click here to read the latest guest post by author Adele Marie Park.

Finally, last year, Debby launched a fundraiser for someone she calls “a remarkable Warrior Woman” her sister, Marni. Read the whole story about Marni and why Debby started the fundraiser by clicking here. If each of my followers just donated $1 each, then we’d raise just over $1,800 towards helping the remarkable woman that is Marni.

  1. Hi, Hugh. Debbie’s blog is fabulous! She is a terrific supporter of other bloggers and authors. She has a fantastic writing style that draws you in whether reading her blog or her books. She is a lovely lady.


  2. Late to the party (what else is new?) – but I was following Debby long before your recommendation. I may, in fact, have found YOU through her blog, Hugh. Deb will be doing a guest blog on self-esteem which will be published in October — and a link here will be among the “Relateds” I add to the bottom of almost all of my posts. Great feature!

      1. I understand about that time thing. If I had known originally how MUCH time blogging would take, it might have given me pause. Going on 7 years later it has become an extremely time-consuming hobby – rewarding in many ways, but it has limited what else I can do considerably. It always threatens to eat my life whole and I’m always looking for ways to streamline.

        For me, writing is the easier/faster part of the process – getting things ON the blog (formatting, linking, graphics, etc.) frequently takes 2/3 of the time – more so with every WordPress “improvement.” They don’t seem to understand the needs of writers very well.


      2. WordPress does seem to make it difficult for some of us writers, especially those who do not want to use their phone or tablet to blog. I’ve tried writing a post, commenting and reading posts on my iPhone and did not like the experience at all. I much prefer to do all my blogging on my desk top, yet they seem to be constantly pushing all of us towards mobile blogging. I hear as well that they are disabling some features which I use a lot. I hope it’s only rumoured that these functions are being disabled, otherwise, I’ll may well have to call it a day. ☹️

      3. They’ve already disabled features that I used to use a lot – and every time they do it takes me longer to do what I used to. Oh please don’t tell me they are taking still more away from us!

        I don’t know how *any* real writer blogs on a phone – or using any piece of technology without a keyboard – especially those of us who touch type. Hunt and tap drives me batty. Shuts thinking down completely.
