Blogging for Writers 101: Make it good

Writers are still blogging. There is no question about it. Many other career-minded individuals have fled the blogosphere, but not writers. So if the matter is not, are writers blogging, but rather, what are writers blogging, then let’s look at that. In my opinion, writers always have a lot to say about blogging. Here is a short list: 1.
