Recently, this e-mail landed in our inbox from an aspiring blogger:
“Howdy….just started a new blog….http://revoltevolve.blogspot.com/…wish
me luck…never done this before, so if you have any suggestions, let ‘em rip.”
From the first post on that blog, it appears the author wants to write mostly from the political front, and he/she is certainly in good company locally.
But our advice is, don’t be afraid to break away from self-imposed order. Our job wouldn’t be as satisfying if not for the candid and awkward (and hilarious!) dialogues over at stupidmommy or an occasional rant at Blue Ridge Blue Collar Girl.
But lucky for Tatujae at Revolt & Evolve, several other bloggers have only in the past week dished out advice and perspectives on blogging issues, including Dancewater’s diatribe on properly crediting blog sources, Coffeehouse Junkie’s bit on interesting writing and Edgy Mama’s reflections on blogging in general.
What about it bloggers? You got any other advice for a new upstart in town?
