New bloggers toolbox

Toolbox A couple months ago, I asked for your help.  I said:

As fresh faces leap into the blogging waters faster than we can count them, it occurred to me that it's in everyone's best interest (and just good manners) to offer a helping hand to the neophytes.  We're helping clients launch blogs on a regular basis and for many of them, these is new territory.

But I need your help.  Someone helped you…now it's our turn!

Well, help you did!  I have now compiled everyone's suggestions and organized them by the following categories:

  • Are chock full of practical tips    
  • Act as a living lab on how to write compelling blog posts    
  • Demonstrate how to build a community    
  • Teach marketing tools    
  • Are welcome wagons – bloggers who spotlight newbies

The toolbox will now have a permanent home here at Drew's Marketing Minute.  Watch for a button along my sidebar. 

Feel free grab the button and share it with your readers as well.  Hopefully, the toolbox will be a resource that bloggers new and old can find value in for a long time.

Special thanks to the contributors.  If I missed anyone, please let me know and I will add your contributions.

      Drew, I wish these tools were there when I first started. What a great idea to put out the challenge to others to help compile the best for others. Best part about this is that it gave me new tools to consider, too!

      Thanks for compiling the whole now and making it a real tool!! 😉

    5. Drew, I love that you got us started on this topic. And look what has come out of it! Advice that I wish I had had available when I started. Thanks for the impetus and for bringing it all together.

    6. Thanks everyone,

      I appreciate your help and your sharing of the toolbox. Please feel free to grab the button and share it with your readers!
