Syp over at Bio Break started a very cool event for bloggers this month. It is the Newbie Blogger Initiative!
Basically the idea is for veteran bloggers to help out and stimulate new people to begin blogging. This will happen during all of the month of May with sponsoring blogs writing posts with advice and other tips to help newcomers to the blogosphere. Currently it has over 70+ blogs already participating and if you want to join in the fun too, please head to the forum Syp setup for the event. You can find it here. If you are a newbie just starting out or thinking about it, join the forums too as there is a section just dedicated to answering questions and to add your blog to the list of new ones.
At the end of the month there will be a compilation of links to all the advice as well as for the new blogs that were created during this month. For the more impatient ones you can check a list of the blogs participating on this thread.
Personally, I am a little terrified of joining in as this blog is still a baby (not even one year old!) even for internet standards. That and it feels kinda like being in the middle of giants. Still I decided to join in because I love writing and this seems like a good challenge to exercise the writing muscles. I also love reading other people’s blogs so this might be also a good opportunity to get to know more interesting blogs be they written by veterans or by anyone just starting out now.
Here is looking forward to the rest of the month and hopefully many new bloggers to share their passions with us through their writing!
