What Writers Need to Know About Quora Blogs

The question and answer community Quora has launched a blog network. According to the site, most active writers on Quora get more than one million estimated annual views and now they have a new set of tools. Check it out:

Blogs on Quora are great for people who (1) don’t have a big, established online presence already and (2) don’t want to do the time-intensive, heavy lifting of marketing their blog and slowly building an audience. If you are a good writer but don’t have thousands of Twitter followers or a big audience for your blog, Quora is an ideal place to write. Your blog will be discovered quickly without you having to do any work besides writing. Writing one great post on Quora will attract a big audience, no matter how many people already know or follow you.

Using the simple tools provided by Quora, we were able to create a self-publishing tools blog from scratch in five minutes.  Below, we’ve linked to some other writing blogs on the network, ranging from writing tips to short stories.

If you want to start your own Quora blog, simply sign up for an account with the network and click the Create a Blog button.
