Guide to Blogging: Coming soon

I’ve been working on a small e-book, The Guide to Blogging, for about 3 weeks now. It should be ready in about 2 more weeks, I hope. I want to provide a brief, step-by-step guide to launching and then promoting a blog. This guide will be for regular folk like you and me, not veteran blogging geeks who actually know what an RSS file looks like (well, OK, I do know what an RSS file looks like, but that’s memory space I’d just as soon get back).

In the mean time, I thought I’d ask: If you have any questions about blogging, getting attention on a blog, or otherwise getting your thoughts on the web, please send them to me, IAN AT

The AT is instead of an @ to stop evil spam bots blah blah blah. Please replace it with a real @ symbol.
