#FollowFriday: For Bloggers, By Bloggers

By: Gini Dietrich | February 25, 2011 | 

Well, this isn’t a #FollowFriday for a particular person; rather a site that is written for bloggers by bloggers.

The brain child of Danny Brown and contributed to by Joey Strawn, Frank Dicksinson, Aaron Lee, and Judy Dunn, For Bloggers, By Bloggers is chock full of tips for everyone interested in blogging to the most sophisticated blogger.

Broken into eight different areas – design, tips, topics, social bookmarking, social networking, theme review, videos, and WordPress – you can get information on just about everything you need. I say just about everything because I’d love to see a robust section on organic search, but that’s because it’s something I need to do more efficiently, not because I think it’s a gaping hole. Come on, guys! Don’t you know this is all about me?!

One thing I love that they’ve recently added is weekly topic ideas for free. In some places, you’d have to pay for those ideas, but For Bloggers, By Bloggers gives them to you with a smile and a “have at it” attitude.

Want to start a blog?

Don’t know what to write about or how often you should write?

Don’t like to write, but really would like to better understand vlogging?

Keep hearing about using social bookmarks, but have no idea what they are or how to use them?

Already have a blog, but don’t get any comments on it?

Reached exhaustion and need a pep talk?

Get my drift? It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out or if you have a blog with a robust community. This #FollowFriday is for you. Because, well, it’s written by people who do this every day and are able to share their lessons, mistakes, and successes.

Check out Danny, Joey, Frank, Aaron, and Judy…and their site that is maintained with you in mind.
