From Baby Blogging to Building Better Blogs

August 13, 2009

I’m a neophyte blogger, who while having a ton of writing experience is facing a very different context. Over the past three months I’ve searched high and low for how-to guides, advice, etc. on how to create effective blogs. I’ve got some good advice from experienced bloggers. But there’s also a crapload of not just information out there, but an equal amount of self-serving BS. That was until yesterday.

One of my groups on is Probloggers. Super blogger Darren Rowse from Australia created and maintains this group. But he’s also involved in a lot of other stuff, such as writing a new guide called “31 Days to Build a Better Blog.” I ordered it off his website since the reviews were great and I’ve also exchanged emails with Darren in the past.

This guide is fantastic. Whether you’re a baby blogger like me or someone with more experience this guide will knock your socks off. I’m very picky when it comes to buying books, guides, etc., but Darren’s is extremely well-designed and written. By the end of chapter one, my head was reeling and I had a long to-do list for the next day. Only some 80 pages to go!

In a Rumsfeldian universe of ‘you don’t know what you don’t know,’ blogging can be very intimidating. In fact, I was thinking of giving it up recently until one of the LinkedIn Probloggers community members gave me reassurance and encouragement to continue on.

So whether you’re a newbie like me, or a more experienced blogger, Darren’s information, advice and penetrating questions will inspire you. Check it out!
