This is a new initiative to bring new people into the world of Warhammer blogging, that’s not to read, but to write. Don’t worry it’s not that hard, seriously if I can write one, then anything is possible. Whether it’s a good one though, that’s a different matter entirely. I always find it more pleasurable to read other peoples blogging than my own.
A few very good bloggers have recently left the Warhammer fold, such as Book Of Grudges and Wall Of Text. Wall Of Text will hopefully return, probably after a break, though the list of issues he had was rather comprehensive. To re-engineer them will require a significant amount of work.
Now there is a website which exists to help out the new bloggers. I certainly didn’t know about it, so I will definitely be adding it to my reading list. There are a couple of topics which I need to improve my understanding of.
Why would you want to blog? Well maybe because you have an opinion to share? How often when you post on a forum, your thoughts are just swallowed up in the general drivel. Here is your opportunity to express yourself.
Now you need to be able to commit yourself to keep it updated. I normally start a blog entry at the beginning of each day and work on it through out the day. Obviously when I am on holiday, like at the moment, I use the wifes laptop to write. I think, this counts as spending quality time with the wife, but I have not yet sought an official clarification on the matter. Sometimes it’s best not to ask the question.
You will gain great pleasure from seeing your blog grow and bit by bit your viewing numbers will increase. My numbers have increased, but I am never sure how many are repeat visitors? Maybe people visit once and never return! Funnily the thing I enjoy the most, is getting comments. People don’t tend to comment as much as on forums, but that’s the nature of the beast.
The last thing I would like to say, is how do we get all these fine warhammer blogs out into wider world, how can we uplift these blogs into high volume news websites, like Voodoo Extreme & Evil Avatar? Maybe get them to implement a blog of the day. If we get a few people jumping in that way, then hopefully they come to stay in World Of Warhammer permanently.
