NBI: Welcome To The Initiative, Newbie Blogger Edition

  • I don't start a new post catagory on a whim. So when you see that "NBI" in the title, you'd better believe this is important.

  • The time has come. Thanks to the leadership of Syp from Bio Break, a number of bloggers have come together to form the Newbie Blogger Initiative. Way back when Warhammer Online came out, there was a huge influx of new bloggers who built a community, several of which are still blogging today. The time has come to foster the community again and we are looking for new bloggers like you.

  • Are you already a blogger? Awesome! Thanks for everything you contribute to the community. Not yet a blogger? Well, I have a proposal for you. Here is what I need you to do:

    • Start A Blog! - It's not as difficult as you might think. Both Blogger and Wordpress are popular free blogging sites. Evidently Tumblr is pretty popular as well. Your mileage may vary, but the important part is just to get started!

    • Introduce Yourself - Now that you have a blog, you need to write your first post. By tradition, that post is usually an introduction. Tell us a little about yourself and why you decided to start blogging.

    • Visit the Newbie Blogger Initiative HQ Forum - There are a bunch of bloggers hanging out to answer questions, network, and encourage you. I love discovering new blogs, so make sure you tell everyone that yours exists.

    • Sit Back and Lap Up All The Praise - Maybe it's not that simple, but it's not very hard either. Post, read other blogs, leave comments, and participate with the community. A community that you are helping to build.

  • Several bloggers will be providing advice throughout the month. I, because I don't know when to shut up, have three posts lined up. I swear, blogging is not hard. I'm just really excited about this. And you should be too. So sign up now. And tell them Anjin sent you.
