Quill & Scroll columns help in planning and starting a blog

Reading the three-column series that Judy Robinson and I wrote for Quill & Scroll Magazine can be helpful as you work on starting your own blog.

“Aggregate and read other blogs” discusses the value of reading and comments on other blogs before starting your own blog and how to use Google Reader to receive blogs.

“Plan first and then dive into blogosphere” explains how to set up your own blog and discusses three possible blogging software — Tumblr.com, WordPress.com and Blogger.com.

“Attract blog readers” discusses how you can write headlines/titles and use trackbacks and tags to get the word out about your blog.

Thanks to Quill & Scroll executive director Vanessa Shelton, the three columns are posted on the Quill & Scroll website.
