How To Blog

Freshness Warning
This article is over 14 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

Pheedo and I are starting a joint project called “How to Blog.” Pheedo’s Bill Flitter and I will be posting to our blogs information designed help business build successful weblogs. Information posted by Bill to the Pheedo blog will appear in my How To Blog category through the magic of Trackback. Likewise, anything I post will show up at Pheedo as well.

We’ll have examples of business blogs, links to articles about blogging basics, marketing tips, and more. If you have a question that you’d like to have answered, let me know and we’ll try and cover it.

Hi Adam - I came across your site while checking search engine rankings for my own site, "How to Blog" which is located at http://blogging.typepad.com As it doesn't appear that you've decided to pursue your blog on How to Blog, I thought I'd throw my URL out there for any of your visitors (like those who left comments on this post) want a guide on How to Blog. I started How to Blog in July 2004, and have been working on it bit by bit since then. It documents my own experiences with learning the technical aspects of blogging, compares various weblog software tools including TypePad, Blogger, MT, WordPress, etc., provides step-by-step "how to's" for a number of areas, etc. If you'd care to provide any feedback about my How to Blog blog, I'd be honored. Sincerely, Emily
