Blog better

with one comment

Dan Frommer is one of the co-founders of the site that eventually became Business Insider. He recently put together a list of 10 tips for better blogging.

You can read the full list on his site. They’re great points for anyone writing online, whether they’re just starting out or have been blogging for years.

Here are my two favorites:

6. Be critical, but don’t be unfair. You’re not a jerk in person. Don’t be one on the Internet. (Unless it’s funny, of course.)

7. Care about your writing. Spell things correctly. Write clearly. Avoid jargon or meaningless business-speak. Learn how to use apostrophes. It really is a reflection of quality.

And if you’ve got a blog (for your company or otherwise) that you think L&L readers should know about, let me know.

  1. Here are a couple of comments that stood out to me:

    From #2: “Don’t publish anything you’re not proud of. Be yourself.”

    #8: Care about design. I think this is really important for blogs in our industry considering the type of creative and visual work we do. A blog’s design should reflect the professionalism and creativity of the company writing for it.
