Starting a blog in 2012

So while we’re on the subject of blogging…

I was happy to see, via a retweet by Mallory Wood, that someone still thinks it’s OK to start blogging. Right now, in 2012.

That someone is Mitch Joel, the guy behind the blog Six Pixels of Separation. In his post — How to start a blog in 2012 — Joel presents a good outline of best practices for wannabe bloggers. And several of the commenters add other worthy ideas.

Joel also encourages newbie bloggers to keep going. His words also resonate with old-time bloggers like me.

[I]f you care enough to Blog, it means that you have something to say. If you have something to say and you’re Blogging it, it means that you want to share and connect. Ultimately, the world needs more people like that.

Indeed we do, Mitch Joel. Thanks for the reminder.
