10 Great Articles of 2007 & Why You Should Read Them

Old or young, bloggers are just as varied in thoughts and creativity. We come from diverse backgrounds and yet we have one common trait in us -- that is to blog and make connections with other bloggers.

In our blogging quest, we are all on common ground. When we create our very first blog we are embarking on a journey that could turn out to be a wonderful blogging experience or, at worse, land us in a minefield of uncertainties, stumbling along in the dark.

How we carry ourselves in this virtual world of bits and bytes will dictate the progress of our blogging adventure. Are we ready to explore the "wide frontier" of the blogosphere or are we restricting ourselves to our own blogging village?

I'll be a lame duck if I don't have the information. Information is the key to become a better blogger. And to get the information, I have to hit the blogging trail and explore the "wide frontier".

Like anything in life, we need guidance. We need to go through the learning curve. We need exchanges of good ideas and profound insights to become better bloggers.

Each one of us does not have all the answers, so who do we turn to for the right answers? Yes, peer bloggers. There are many of them who can show us tips and tricks of blogging because they themselves have gone through the grind and learn a lot from their own blogging experience.

So, as we head towards the end of 2007, here's a list of some of the great articles (in my own humble opinion) that I have come across this year that will give you food for thoughts and, most importantly, add as a catalyst to inspire and motivate you to become a better, well-rounded blogger :

1. The Secret to Building a Popular Blog (and Getting Tons of Readers) -- Dosh Dosh

2. The Worst Post in the Universe (Impure version) -- Courtney Tuttle

3. Five Grammatical Errors That Make You Look Dumb -- Copyblogger

This Is A Year To Celebrate! -- Goodness Graciousness

5. I Don't Write Long Posts Just To Annoy You -- Grizzly Brears

6. How to Doggedly Pursue Your Dreams in the Face of Naysayers -- Zen Habits

7. How to Stop Complaining -- Steve Pavlina

8. Your Secret Blogging Weapon Is You -- Cornwallseo

9. The Beautiful Post -- Skelliewag

10. The Three Little Blogs: A Cautionary Tale -- Bloggrrl
