Welcome to the second week of the Newbie Blogger Initiative! If you’re still on the fence about starting up a new blog, hopefully seeing all the folks who have taken the plunge recently has given you inspiration to do so. If nothing else, you’ll be in great company!
Here’s another handful of newish blogs to read today:
- EVE All Night: And party ev-er-y day!
- Dreadblade: A newer WoW blog that’s recently moved to WordPress
- Priest All The Things: This may be my new favorite blog title
- Brazokie’s Blog Space: A blogger who’s writing to master English as a second language
- Warp to Zero: An EVE Blogger who wants to warp into your heart
- Altaclysmic: A grumpy dwarf talks about WoW
Bio Break blogger tip of the day: Never, ever hotlink images into your post. Hotlinking is where you cut-n-paste the URL of the image instead of just saving and uploading the image yourself. It’s not only bad form, but it can lead to trouble. Early on I was doing this out of ignorance, and someone changed one of the pictures I was hotlinking to a porn image. You don’t need that kind of publicity.
