The Art of Weblogging - do you measure up?

What is good weblog writing and are you doing it? Aimlessly wandering the web and commenting about it is not going to hack it! If you need to ask yourself this question don't worry - there's plenty of good advice out there to help us succeed as weblog writers.

Here are some of the most common suggestions:
  • Write good titles - B L Ochman gives some examples
  • Keep your posts around 250 words - included in Darren Rowse' top ten tips
  • Voice your opinion - be honest
  • Omit unnecessary words - keep sentences short and to the point
  • Provide good, informative, links - Seth Godin says, "Write like a Blogger"
  • You don't have to be all serious - a little humor makes people want to come back
  • People like lists (gotta learn from what you read)!
If that's not enough tips yet, what's wrong with you? Do you want to be famous for your blog writing, rank high on google, write like a professional, or know all the technical stuff? Writing a blog is surely an adventure, a learning experience, and something that can result in personal growth. All you have to do is keep reading and keep blogging.

What have you learned from blogging?
