The Washington Post has a top-ten blogging tips article, which is a good start for any new bloggers – interestingly they seem to have talked to people who blog in and about Washington itself. A more interesting approach than the usual ‘super-blogger’ advice.

I don’t agree with their ideas on Nominating Yourself for Awards, which seems a bit like spaming, but the basic truths are there – basically have good content and join ‘the community’ (ie read other blogs, link and comment).
