This week in JRN203, we discussed blogging as a platform for writing and publishing. One resource that I didn’t mention in class is 33 Must Read Tips & Tutorials for Bloggers. This standing page was actually is a list of links to other sites that offer specific tips and hints about blogging.
This collection was gathered and displayed on a blog about Internet marketing for real estate experts. So some of the links relate primarily to small business owners and professionals. But most of the choices have useful information for anyone interesting in learing more about blogging. The tips cover how to get started, basic writing advice, and building an audience. My favorites include:
- How to Write an Article in 20 Minutes, with good ideas for just about any working journalist,
- 5 Ways to Build Your Voice, recognizing that a strong and consistent point of view is critical to successful blogging, and;
- How to get traffic for your blog, which of course is the main reason journalists want to blog.
Check out the complete list and tell me your favorite in the comments below.
