When I first started using an RSS Reader, several of the programs I tried out had built in bookmarks for such sites as Metafilter and BoingBoing. Being a newbie to the blogging/technology scene, I was underwhelmed by these websites, quickly deleting them from my reader. I'm still a newbie, but I'm becoming more committed to learning how to be an effective blogger. Today, I was checking bookmarks that Johnnie sent to me via Delicious and started reading about the most influential bloggers. As I skimmed the list (starting with #1, of course), I began to understand how these websites can further my blogging education. There's one in particular that looks perfect for someone with my level of skill (or lack thereof): Problogger. Although I only had time to skim the site today (on a break from my reading/prepping for class), I want to spend more time there. Johnnie also sent me a link to an article entitled "41 Reasons Why Your Blog Probably Sucks." This list also looks like an important one for me to study. I hope that in the ensuing weeks, you'll see some changes that will make my blog more interesting and readable. Stay posted.
