One of the things I’ve enjoyed about ProBlogger in the last 12 months has been that I’ve ‘met’ (virtually of course) a large number of amazing bloggers who know a whole heap more about blogging than I do in a variety of areas. I’ve been experimenting with finding ways to highlight some of them lately in a number of ways other than the traditional linking up way.
For example during my Blogging for Beginners series I had approached a few good bloggers to contribute pieces. I was very happy with what they came up with – so much so that it made me realize that there are some aspects of blogging that others are probably better positioned to write about here at ProBlogger than myself. I see my own strengths as lying in monetization, SEO and in some of the conceptual stuff – but am weaker when it comes to the technical side of things.
As a result today I approached Aaron Brazell with the idea that he start a weekly (at this point) column on ProBlogger that tackles some of your more technical questions.
Aaron won’t be a stranger to many of you – he’s already written three popular posts here (10 things you should know about WordPress 2.0, Tag, You’re It! Leveraging Tagging for Your Blog and Kick Your RSS: Jumping on the Syndication Bandwagon) he’s also the blogger behind Technosailor and is one of our b5 bloggers (editing our Sports Channel).
So expect to see Aaron’s first post shortly (within the hour). As I say he’ll be looking at more technical aspects of things and will be posting on a weekly basis to start with. If you have questions/suggestion for him to write about feel free to leave a comment in his first post and if you have comments on the idea of adding a second blogger to ProBlogger I’d love to hear them.
