For the month of October, over 70 established bloggers will be supporting new bloggers by providing help, advice, feedback and a whole load of traffic to the new sites 🙂 See the NBI blog and the forums for more information.
so… why do I blog and why should YOU blog?
I started blogging because I started reading gaming blogs, really enjoyed them and thought I’d enjoy writing about my gaming experiences too. The interaction with other bloggers is also pretty cool. I love reading about other people’s experiences with the games I play and their opinions, screenshots, creative efforts, news, speculation…
and that’s why YOU should blog – I want to read what you’re doing or thinking or writing or drawing about games.
how to get involved:
Head over to the Newbie Blogger Initiative forums, have a look around and register (a simple 5 min process). Read the posts filed under Newbie Bloggers, especially the newbie blogger instructions. If you have any questions, ASK!
