This site is a collection of blogs written by inmates. It serves as a platform which allows them to share their stories, their opinions, their struggles, and their inner thoughts. You can lock up a man, but you can’t lock up their mind. I believe that the therapeutic power of writing can be a great source of rehabilitation, growth and healing.

This platformΒ isΒ FREE to all inmates, however donations are greatly appreciated.

Inmate Blogger serves different purposes, here are just a few:

  • it helps inmates open up through the power of writing
  • it gives family & friends of these inmates a chance to read about their journey
  • it gives doctors/researchers/students insight into the criminal mind
  • it gives society a glimpse into a real inmates life, their past, & their rehabilitation process
  • it shares stories of innocence
  • it shares a real look within the prison system
  • it offers inspiring stories of change

Blogging is such a positive alternative when compared to all the misconduct that goes on within prison. Please help spread the word about InmateBlogger.com.

  1. Everyone has a purpose in life. We lose sight of that sometimes. A wise man once told me: “Sometimes, when you are up to your armpits in alligators, it’s hard to remember you went into the swamp to drain it.”
    Looking forward to reading some of you experiences.
    Peace be with you.

  2. Thank you for following my blog. Trigger Warning: some of the vignettes from childhood traumas may be triggering for some folks. Other folks find them powerful tools, within the objective of growing awareness about the epidemic and its lifelong consequences. One of those consequences, sadly, being the school-to-prison-pipeline. Awareness and understanding lag far behind the science. Your support is greatly appreciated.

  3. Thank you for following my blog. I love the idea of this blog, especially since my best friend started out as an inmate pen-pal. We wrote to each other for well over 12 years and he often wished he had a way to vent out and let people know how prison life can affect a person. Now, since he is recently off parole, he is doing really great. We keep in contact a lot now via social media and are hoping to meet for the first time in July in almost 14 years of just writing to each other.

  10. How can my son write you while being incarcerated? If he writes on Jpay you have to initiate the email before he can write you. So I just wondered ?

    • You are very welcome. Please browse around and read through the many posts from inmates. The bloggers would love to hear from you. Thanks for following and for commenting πŸ™‚


  12. You are helping those people who are away from their family, who are abandoned by society and wants to redirect their mind in positive way. A little comment of inspiration can motivate them to fight against all odds and allow them to be part of mainstream, really impressive and thoughtful!

  13. I created a blog few days ago, wrote a few posts and my first follower is inmateblogger. Mindboggling.
    I’m very happy that it happened like that.

    It also makes me appreciate more that i’m still on the outside.

  14. Thank you so much for following us. Douglas and I are so appreciative. I am excited to read the posts on this blog. As a society, we really need to protest the mass incarceration of citizens. It is a shame on the nation. It is great that there is a place for people to communicate their thoughts, and I salute you.

  15. Hello, thanks for dropping by and liking my blog. I’ve read many books about people in prison and who have committed crimes for the past 45 plus years, and I’ve been reviewing books for the past several years now, mostly non-fiction. I’ve always found it an interesting topic, yet one that is always with us and keeps our curiosity for some reason. People just have a fascination with it, what makes some people go down that path, I guess. I pray for those who are locked away from friends and family and struggle to continue day to day.

    • HI, reading your reply I wanted to make a comment. I don’t think reading books about people in prison ever makes someone want to “go down that path.” These books don’t glorify being in prison. Most people read because they have someone inside or know of someone and want to understand. Some use it to understand our prisons, but reading about it doesn’t make someone want to be a criminal.


    • It isn’t necessarily that an inmate has chosen the prison path…Bill, Hillary and Joe put into motion the 1994 violent crimes act and which injected $9.7 Billion into the prison and judicial systems. Everybody wanted a piece of that pie, sO misdemeanors were turned into felonies and mass incarceration was born..
