Firstly, a few words about other tutorials, blogs, and guides you’ve been using.
Forget about them.
Chances are they contain lots of fluff, opinions, nonsense, and haven’t gotten you where you want to be.
Welcome to Dear Blogger, a community where blogging answers are exchanged quickly, effortlessly, and obviously for free. It’s actually a new take on a lot of things.
Secondly, ever write and sort of hear yourself writing in a British accent? Happens to me all the time. Anyways…
Hey. My name’s Greg. I’m a 25 year old blogger and developer from snowy Minnesota currently living and working in the Big Apple.
I’ve blogged for brands, networks, even the government, and most importantly, people.
I love blogging, it’s a way of documenting things you learn and giving those things almost instantly to a huge audience.
I’ve sort of come to know what people want in a blog, and what they can’t stand too. It could help that I research blogs for two hours every morning, or that I’ve got two social sciences degrees under my belt.
I get you.
You want blogging answers, not eloquent fluff filled with misleading jargon or sponsorship plugs.
I read through WordPress codex and sometimes think I’m derping. What the f are they saying? Why can’t tech people communicate like normal people? Are they lazy, are they being cryptic on purpose?
I’d go so far as to say I think we get each-other too, so formally, welcome to Dear Blogger. Hola, bonjour, 你好.
Why did I start Dear Blogger?
Because I’m seriously so tired of blogging answers being hard to find.
Where was I right before this?
Find out on my about page. I’ve been in Istanbul, Amsterdam, India, and of course, Minnesota lately.
Why the name “Dear Blogger?”
Because that’s how people originally started out asking me blog questions. “Dear Blogger…What exactly are WordPress plugins and how do you use them?” is one such example.
What’s in it for YOU?
More than I can describe here. When you guys ask questions, I answer right away in the comments. If 20-30 of you ask on the same or similar topic, expect an entry on it, and pronto. I’ve also crafted an eBook that could very well save your blog. What’s it called? Bye-Bye Bounce Rate.
Whats Dear Blogger’s place in the blogosphere?
I’ll be honest, it’s unique, perhaps too soon to know. We are a community dedicated to building better blogs each day.
Can you email me?
Do I accept guest posts?
Not at the moment. Dear Blogger is too fresh at the moment. Updated: Dear Blogger is accepting guest posts now but out of lots of submissions I can only accept a few. If you have a strong following of your own and an innate knack for answering blogging questions, please reach out to studyH@dearblogger.org.
What do I love?
Blogging, duh! Now go read your first entry…
