Blogging tips

I stumbled upon this fantastic list of tips for blogging. Warning, some of the language in the list isn't.... how shall we say... what you'd find in this blog. Lots of good points about making the effort to push your thoughts when you're blogging and not being embarassed not to give your mother your address.

I especially like rule #19:
19. Push the envelope in what you’re writing about and how you’re saying it. Be more and more honest. Get to the root of things. Start at the root of things and get deeper. Dig. Think out loud. Keep typing. Keep going. Eventually you’ll find a little treasure chest. Every time you blog, this can happen if you let it.


Since I'm currently reading Bonhoeffer and Willard and studying the Sermon on the Mount with my church group, that could lead to some interesting results. Stick around.

Great tips, however this tip "Don’t tell your mom, your work, your friends, the people you want to date, or the people you want to work for about your blog. If they find out and you’d rather they didn’t read it, ask them nicely to grant you your privacy."

You cannot expect "privacy" while writing your thoughts and endeavors online. It is an open book.

The whole point about writing for some, is to be heard. To share information, educate, aware, and offer good information and interesting information.
