It’s May 1, which means today is not only a public holiday over here and I am off for brunch soon, it also means that today the MMO and gaming blogosphere will explode with posts about the Newbie Blogger Initiative. It’s all the brainchild of Syp who you might or should be reading over in his blog Bio Break or at his gig at Massively. He asked more than 70 bloggers to take part in this month-long event, to act as sponsors and offer advice, help, answer questions and share some mighty link love with everyone who wants to jump into the blogging pool. Now is a perfect time to get out there and start blogging, if you were thinking about it.
My personal goal is to finally convince my friend Jules to start blogging, I’ll keep you posted how that goes. 😉
There will be a master list of participating blogs for you soon, but in the meantime, I have a couple of blogs who already started the event and who have posted their intros:
- Life is a Mind Bending Puzzle
- Stropp’s World
- Jedi Gambit
- Welcome to Spinksville
- Games and Geekery
- Ardwulf’s Lair
And that’s just a few of those over 70 bloggers kicking it off!
If you have thought about starting your own blog, about whatever subject you fancy, now is a perfect time to start. You’ll never get more support than this month. If you’re interest in joining the fun, head on over to the Newbie Blogger Initiative Forums, register, and head on over to the Newbie Blogger Instructions.
So what’s my role in all of this? I am really excited that Syp invited me, and I am hoping to some insights about why blogging is fun, how to start from scratch, and find your own niche that you are comfortable in. I obviously am not the greatest example of posting regularly, or how to make money with your blog, but I like to think that I blog with love. As I only recently blogged about why I actually started blogging myself, I won’t bore you with repeating the details.
I invite you to post any and all questions you might have about the NBI or blogging or me in general. Let’s make this an awesome month for new bloggers!
