Have you guys been saying good things about me, telling folks you like my blog? Reason I ask is because I was approached by a representative from firstsiteguide.com, asking me to take a look at it and let my readers know what I think. Well, I’ve browsed the site, looked at some of the advice, enjoyed some of the fun pictures and I’m pleased to report that it’s worth checking out if any of you are interested in blogging.
They cover the gamut of blogging, from the history, to why people do it, what kinds are out there, how to make money from blogging, you name it. Maybe I should look at the chapter about monetizing the blog… who couldn’t go for more of that right?
If you have an inkling of a kernel of a nugget of an idea you wouldn’t mind blogging about, I definitely recommend checking them out. When I first started fictigristle, I wanted to document this war in the trenches, the journey from selling my first story at token pay to becoming a pro to (now!) working on getting a book deal. I remember when I thought it up I wasn’t sure of how to really start, what things to include, where to host it, etc. Having something like that back when I posted my first blog would have helped make the war in the trenches feel less like a war.
