How To Be a Blogger

I think most kids grow up to work dead-end jobs simply because they didn't know how to get to their dream ones.

So this one's for the kids. Every kid has dreamed at one point in their lives of being a blogger.

Working for free, building community with strangers, meeting fictitious deadlines. What's not to like?

Things You Can Do Now To Prepare For Your Future As A Blogger
  • Take notes. You'll need ideas for your last-minute post (this one!). It helps if you have a list of ideas handy.
  • Be ridiculous. The more outlandish you can make any situation you find yourself in, the better your blog posts will be later.
  • Learn web design. Then your blog won't look generic and boring. Like mine.
  • Read Bryan Allain's new book, 31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo. It's full of funny and very useful advice for growing your blog. My favorite are the hidden ninja parts. Bryan is the blogging world's Gandalf. Trust him.
