How to Blog

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately working on Karen’s new website and its companion blog. Since she is new to blogging, I’ve been searching for information on the internet about how to blog.
Here’s some of the better sites that I found:

I’ve included links ranging from the very basic on how to blog to others with more detailed information or ideas.

There isn’t just one way to blog and there are no hard and fast rules. I’ve seen a lot of blogs that hold very little interest for me and some that are just out right rude and offensive. I’ve visited other blogs that are very fascinating on topics that I have never had any interest at all in.
