Canadian Professional Blogging Podcast #3: Event Blogging Tips

Posted in Blogging, Events, Podcasting, Professional Blogging

So, as all of my readers here at Blogaholics have noticed, I went all out event blogging Gnomedex. It’s something I absolutely love to do.

Tris & I thought we would share some event blogging tips with everyone. We both approach it a little differently, but there are some simple tips you can follow to get out both quality and quantity with your posts. Preparation and fast typing are only part of the picture. One of the hardest parts is actually remembering to type when you are enjoying the speaker.

But, tune in for all the tips we share. Feel free to leave any comments you have about your own event blogging experiences. Fun? Hard? Tiring?

Canadian Professional Blogging Podcast #3 – your blogging voice Part 2

Posted in Blogging, Podcasting, Professional Blogging

For those of you following the start of our Canadian Professional Blogging series, thanks for turning in. We’ve really appreciated the feedback!

To follow up with our last podcast on your blogging voice, Tris and I recorded this podcast with tangible tips on how you can go about developing your blogging voice. We really wanted to explore what series of steps you can take to have a distinctive and unique voice that comes through no matter where you write. We developed a set of notes for you to follow along:

How to develop your blogging voice:

* Read a lot online and offline

* Experiment on a “test blog” or personal blog so you can experiment with your topics

* Have fun – try some wacky posts on your personal blog to learn how to write casually consistently

* Practice, practice, practice

* Write like nobody is reading–with caveats

* Have an edge. Something to make you inviting

* Write like you talk. Cut things up if you talk like that or get excited and go on. be you.

* Write like you’re having a conversation with a member of your audience

* Don’t forget to interact. — know how pushy your interaction is – do you ask questions? Are you stating something or trying to invite discussion?

* Ask yourself the role you want to take when writing and let it reflect. If you are an authority, then you need to write differently than someone who is just learning

General writing advice:

* Save to draft the first few posts on any new blog then post

* Know your topic. or at least cover your bases

* Have boundaries. watch your opinion and how far you want to take it

Canadian Professional Blogging Podcast #2 – your blogging voice

Posted in Blogging, Podcasting, Professional Blogging

It’s out – podcast #2 of the Canadian Professional Blogging series – your blogging voice. This is part 1 of 2 on the same topic which Tris and I recorded a couple of days ago.

Part one examines what Tris and myself think of our own professional voices and our struggles toward making these realizations. We both agree that you don’t just start blogging and have a voice – ours emerged after much self-examination and really listening to commentary. We do give some insight into how you too can find your voice. But, I’ll not ruin the podcast for you.

Part 2 in this mini “voice” series will examine some more tangible things you can do to find your blogging voice and, perhaps, to make sure it evolves right along with the work you’re doing and your growth as a syndicated author.

As with all our podcasts, we will begin the session addressing any comments we’ve received and offering some follow up to our last podcast. In this podcast we answer Robert’s question about being a professional blogger for religion-oriented blogs.

Canadian Professional Blogging Podcast #1 – becoming a ProBlogger

Posted in Blogging, Podcasting, Professional Blogging

Here is the first of many in a series of podcasts between Tris Hussey and myself. Canadian Professional Blogging Podcast #1

Our series will discuss being a professional blogger – how we got where we are, some hot blogging issues, and tips for others interested in professional blogging. In particular, we’ll try to highlight the vibrant blogging community here in Canada and what it’s like to base your blogging career here.

Topic- our first topic rounds off how Tris & I came to be where we are: as professional bloggers. Our paths were different, but we now sit at the same point in a very exciting industry.

Tris & I are excited to deliver this series on professional blogging – we may be in different parts of Canada, but we have the wonder of Skype to make it all possible. Thanks to Tris for the great editing job. Looking forward to more podcasts!!

If you have a suggestion for a topic you’d like us to cover, drop a comment into the post.

    Congratulations on your first blogcast! Mom

  2. Robert Lyons says:

    I just got finished with your first podcast and it was great. I want to be able to do some of the things that you speak about, however, the content on my blog is very focused, and even though it would be great to turn it into a stream of income, the line that I would have to walk is a lot finer than most. I would appreciate if you have any resources that you can point me to in order to help build my blog further. – Keep up the great content!

    Excellent! Look forward to hearing more.

    Cheers!
