The following are some of the most popular in the world and my favorites, I encourage you to check them out!

6. TMZ.com

Celebrity Gossip. I’m not obsessed with it, but they always seem to be right….

Those are my blog suggestions. I don’t know of too many but these really are great. Here are a few more tips to get you started.

 

 

 

1. Pick something you are passionate about. No one wants to write about something they are bored with. Pick something that inspired you. Make it feel like play… not work.

2. Make sure you are regular… with blogging that is. There is nothing more unsparing than an “even three month” blogger. If your readers see that you seldom post anything, they won’t be your readers for long.

3. Encourage reader response and feed back. One of the best ways to keep you writing is to know that someone is reading. Encourage you readers to respond to your posts and add comments. A good way to do this is by asking open ended question and asking for opinions so that readers feel that their input is invited.

4. Finally, Sexy blogs are better blogs. Don’t skimp on good design. Spend some time and pick a good theme that really reflects you or your topic. Nothing too busy, nothing too “MySpacey” (Word Credit – Prof. Barbra Nixon). A clean, fun, design is what you are looking for. Make sure to always us picture or some multimedia in your posts. It’s the internet!! The sky is the limit.

Once again, Have Fun!
