As I mentioned in my last post – while I take a little break here at ProBlogger (just for a few days) I’m going to be running a series of posts written by some of the bloggers over at b5media. I’m hoping for it to run over the next 12 days as a 12 days of Christmas type series.
Whether there ends up being 12 of them I’m not sure (I think I’ve only got 10 of them).
The point of the series? It’s twofold really.
Firstly I think the bloggers at b5 have a wealth of experience between them and I wanted to get them sharing with each other more on what they know about blogging. This is one of the benefits of being in a blognetwork – people quite naturally help each other out as we have a group with all kinds of expertise. Our internal communications are a fascinating read as different people share what they know. I’m hoping we can raise the level of this sharing of knowledge within the network in 2006.
Secondly I figured it’d be a good opportunity to put some other names on the face of b5media than it’s directors. While there’s been some negative press recently about b5media’s directors recently our bloggers have selflessly blogged on and produced some excellent content. Hopefully this will give a little something back to them and raise the profile of the work that they do. Each post will have links back to their blogs.
Keep in mind our bloggers are all at different levels of experience and are blogging about very diverse niches – some of their tips will be very helpful to some of you and others will not be as relevant for you depending upon your own blogging focus and experience. Some will seem basic, others irrelevant – but I’m sure all will find some readers that they resonate with.
Without further ado – let me bid you farewell for the weekend and get this new series under way.
