We Are Experienced
Who knows the real figures? Not every blog is indexed. Thousands of bloggers start blogging all over the world every minute. I’m sure that many could be like I was — thinking this stuff has got to be easy and finding it wasn’t as easy as I thought.
Drew McLellan has a project to help new bloggers who are feeling like that. He’s compiling a toolkit — a list of blogs that new bloggers can turn to when they start out — a bloggy version of the SOB NEW BLOGGER PAGE. He’s asking for our help. He said.
Anyone who is interested, create a post listing a few blog sites (and maybe give a word or two as to how you’d categorize them) that:
New Bloggers Toolbox
- Are chock full of practical tips
- Act as a living lab on how to write compelling blog posts
- Demonstrate how to build a community
- Teach marketing tools
- Are welcome wagons – bloggers who spotlight newbies

There are so many more blogs that could be here. I know. I know. If you can, write a post like this one and link back to Drew, so he can find it when he needs to compile them.
Drew’s doing a generous thing with this project. He’s offered us a chance to participate. We can “give back with gratitude,” through the links we choose to pass on. Let’s build a list that will help new bloggers and serve our readers at the same time.
We were all new bloggers once, and someone helped us. It’s nice to have this chance to do the same.
Thank you, Drew, for this idea and for including my blog on your list.
