25 Tips for Aspiring Bloggers
Occasionally I get email from other aspiring queer bloggers asking for advice, and I received another one recently, so I thought I'd share some general, hard-won blogging advice. Take it all with a boulder of salt.

A while back I posted on the same topic, My Bullet List for Blog Success... it's a little shorter, but I think it summarizes many of your points quite well:

Resonance makes me follow someone's blog - when there's something in what (or how) they write that rings my own bells. So for me, it's definitely vital to bring your own authentic emotion to whatever you're writing. Also, I like being entertained!

Great post! My blog is rather an amalgamation, but I think it's interesting to mix it up with the Latin America travelers, BLTGQ folks, and decluttering people and see what happens. I like the cross-pollenization (is that a word?)!
Great tips, BW. I struggle with some things, like social media. I know how important it is to the spread of information, but I've always been such a private person and balk at the notion of 300 "friends." I have three, and I'm pretty sure that's all I need. I started blogging as a way of holding myself accountable to myself for actually WRITING. And I figured if I ever had anything important enough to say, that someone else wasn't saying better, I would deal with my feelings about social media. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I know there are many with more to say who say it better. But it might well be the issue of education that throws me into the fray of social media. I think you're dead on for your 25 tips--especially #s 2 & 8. You rock, BW.
