I just came across this wonderfully rich and practical resource on the Duke University "Social Media" Site. Here's the url, and here's a tidbit below to show you how much you need this: http://spotlight.duke.edu/socialmedia/2012/10/19/5-blogging-tips-for-newbies/
5 Blogging Tips For Newbies
This is a guest blog post by Fenella Saunders, managing editor at American Scientist, who attended the Back to the Blog conference at Duke University on October 13, 2012.
If you’ve opened this post, you’ve probably already seen the attractiveness of one major blog tip for newbies: Use a number in your title that will give people a list they can scan quickly and take away some pithy information about how to do something. (And apparently odd numbers are more attractive than even ones.)
That was one of the point brought up at the “Back to the Blog” workshop held at Duke University on October 13. Anton Zuiker and Cara Rousseau organized some great information and guest speakers for those who don’t know much about blogging. (See more links and details).
And, another source. . . . .
