Today is Day One of the Newbie Blogger Initiative, a month-long endeavor to welcome and encourage new bloggers into this terrifying public online world.
…wow, I’m really selling this, aren’t I?
There are over 70 blogs participating in this initiative, including myself as a sponsor, so if you’d like to throw in your hat, be sure to visit the NBI forums here. That link is good for either newbie bloggers themselves or anyone with an established blog who’d be interesting in being a sponsor. Starting a new blog is scary and there’s not much worse than feeling your words are going, unread, into the aether, which is why I’m so honored to be taking part this month.
Later in the month I’ll have a post up with some advice, tips and suggestions on getting your feet wet from my own experience blogging, and at the end of May I’ll be posting a wrap-up with all the articles written by the sponsors taking part.
