So, I’ve been fighting an epic battle these last few weeks about what I should blog about on my website. Never having blogged before, I am much like a nestling without its nest; flapping my wings but going nowhere fast. What subject-matter should I focus on? How often should I post? How personal should I make my blogs? How long? How short? Pictures? No? Yes? Maybe?
So I did a bit of research on how to write a ‘good’ blog post and I got a few good tips from an article called Ten Tips for Writing a Blog Post. I like this article because its straight forward and it answers more questions than it raises.
I also found a Blogging For Dummies website as well that was surprising helpful. Interesting enough, it’s not as straight forward as the Ten Tips article but I think that has more to do with the formatting (Which apparently can play a huge part in a good/bad post)
Now, if you are a writer, want to become a writer, or just like reading content written by and for writers, here is a list of the top ten award-winning bloggers that you may know and/or like.
Blogs like Men With Pens and Confident Writing have all been awarded top marks on more than one occasion, Men With Pens being awarded the Top Ten spot from 2008 to 2011. Worth looking into if you ask me.
Well I really hope this helps anyone who, like me, is trying to start a blog and has absolutely NO CLUE where to go from the Hello World entry blog.
