I like to go exploring once in a while. Internet exploring, that is. I plug a word or phrase into the search box and wander through the list until I find something of interest. I looked for “blogs writers blog” which was actually a typo since I meant to search on “blogs writers block.” Even with the odd search phrase, I found some gems.
“Writer Beware, a publishing industry watchdog group sponsored by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America with additional support from the Mystery Writers of America, shines a bright light into the dark corners of the shadow-world of literary scams, schemes, and pitfalls.

I do that at work, not in my spare time.”
