A Guide to Better Blogging

December 14, 2011

Dan Frommer has posted a guide called, “10 steps to better blogging“. His rules are aimed at commercial bloggers/journalists, but even for the hobbyist/student there are some noteworthy points (certainly ones I try to follow):

  • 1. Accuracy is essential: Be forthright about errors and fix them.
  • 4. Cite your sources: It’s honest, and honorable to give credit where it’s due.
  • 7. Grammar and spelling are important: You don’t necessarily have to use the Queen’s English but use language intentionally.
  • 10. Try new things: It’s a new medium so there are lots of areas for discovery.

Most of these are just the basic elements of good writing.

I’d also suggest that it’s important to include your perspective wherever you can. There are a number of great places that aggregate a lot of good information, but for the aspiring writer, adding your unique point of view should help find your voice.
