I’m not a natural blogger.
Sharing my thoughts, opinions and information I find interesting with people worldwide, somehow puts the fear in me. The fear of expectation…
Of course no one is really expecting anything. I imagine, like me, people are just happy to stumble across something worth reading or looking at.
So, deciding that I was probably over thinking the whole blogging thing, I did a bit of research into what makes a good blog and what makes a good blog for me. I started off with getting a definition of blogging. This is the best one I found:
Noun: A website on which an individual or group of users record opinions, information, thoughts, news etc on a regular basis.
The first thing that stood out was the ‘regular’ bit. I’ve been going very wrong there. Also the ‘opinions’ bit – I’m very fussy about whose general opinions on life I can be bothered to sit down and read in a blog and I’m not one to assume that people want to read mine. So with that in mind I’ve decided to stick to informational and tip based blogging.
I’ve listed below some the best blogs I found about… well blogs. And blogging.
