BlogU

With the advent of simple blogging, available to people of all walks of life and styles, the number of personal blogs has soared to incredible proportions. A reader can find just about anything they want, from excellent culinary choices in the city of their desire, to how to play the latest and greatest games with ease. Everybody can, and does, blog.

What makes my blog stick out, though? This is the question all half-decent blog writers should (and most likely will) inevitably encounter. It's important to consider whether or not your blog will actually draw readers, or simply collect cyber dust.

If this is your dilemma, then Annie is here to save the day. She's the writer for the immensely popular "BlogU," which is a crash course in good blog design. BlogU (a clever name devised to mean "Blog University") features a minimalist, but exceedingly elegant, design that reflects the author's ability to cleanly and professionally construct strong blogs.

    On a side not, I have been told that by blog has a rather nice design and I do get some feedback on my posts so you might want to write about me ;)

    On top of that, I do enjoy the way your write [talk about brown nose-ing]

  11. Love Spartan094's comment! And thanks so much for the feature post! I started BlogU because I couldn't get my blog to do what I wanted...and as I learned how to do it, I posted about it for other newbies to learn. It simply evolved into a wonderful learning experience for myself and my readers.

  17. I don't think it's recommended to use guidance in a form of 'Blogging University', really. IMO it's all about your writing skills you've developed somewhere around Hight School era or even earlier. Than, some other things, like the desing of the blog itself, are more about self-expression. Lastly, in case of many bloggers conducting a blog is simply fun and experimenting. Of course, if someone craves for frequent readers, then yes: any forms of help and marketing improvements are recommended. It's not my case, though.
