Blogging for Beginners
Just because it seems everyone and her brother has a blog
doesn't mean you have to. Unless you want to. Then, by all means,
do it. But do it right.
Michele C. Hollow, blogger at petnewsandviews.com, offers these
tips for getting started:
Blog about what you love. "Don't write about
something you're conflicted about," she says. "Write about what
you're passionate about."
Stick to a schedule. Whether you post articles
once a week or once a day, be as consistent
Check your work. Read and reread your posts
before you hit "publish," says Hollow. Spelling counts.
Read other blogs. Good writers will tell you that
reading sharpens their skills. Bloggers are writers.
Ask for tech help. There are plenty of websites
where you can host your blog, but if you're not sure where to
begin, Hollow suggests hiring an in tern. A local school may also
have students looking to earn some extra money.
