If your experiences are similar to mine, you see the same names popping up again and again across blogs in your niche. This doesn’t happen without good reason – experienced, a-list bloggers have a lot to teach us.
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned about blogging and new media, especially since beginning my work with BlogWorld, it is this: Everyone has something to teach. Just because you haven’t been doing this for years doesn’t mean that you don’t have good ideas and instincts.
Have you been blogging for under six months? If so, we’d love to feature you as part of our new series, Meet the Blogger. Bloggers from all niches and walks of life are welcome. We want to get to know you and your blog!
What is Meet the Blogger?
- A way for our community to meet some of the best new bloggers in the industry
- Your opportunity to reach not only our blog readers, but also our newsletter readers
- The chance to share advice about the things you’ve learned as a new blogger
Want to participate? I’d love to here from you! Simply email me at allison-at-abcontentonline-dot-com with “Meet the Blogger” in the subject line. Make sure you include your blog URL and a few sentences about yourself! You can also read more here, including a list of past participants.
Been blogging for over six months? We’d love to post a guest post from you or link to you during our weekly Brilliant Bloggers post!
I’m happy to announce an exciting new feature here at the BlogWorld blog, and I hope that you all will get involved! In December, we presented the 12 Days of Blogging, a daily round-up of link love for some of the best bloggers from around the world. Each day, there as a different topic covered, and you all helped us create an awesome resource. We want to keep that love going! So, starting this week, we’ll be featuring even more awesome bloggers as part of the Brillian Blogger series.
Here’s how it will work:
Every Thursdays, we’ll do a round-up of posts surrounding a specific topic about blogging. You’re welcome to submit relevant posts to us up until Wednesday at noon EST. We’ll pick our three favorites to be featured, and everyone else will be listed as bonus resources. It’s like a blog carnival on crack.
Posts don’t have to be written the week that submissions are accepted – they can be weeks, months, or even years old, as long as they are still relevant! You can also use these topics as inspiration to write a post so you have something awesome to submit. Bring your a game, and you could be a featured Brilliant Blogger!
Here’s the upcoming schedule:
- February 3 – Running a Contest or Giveaway
- February 10 – WordPress versus Other Platforms
- February 17 – Blogrolls and Link Love
- February 24 – Klout and Improving Your Score
- March 3 – Commenting on Other Blogs
- March 10 – StumbleUpon
Submit Your Link:
Right now, submissions are open for February 3’s Brilliant Bloggers – Running a Contest or Giveaway. To submit one of your posts, head to our Blog Carnival page and send me your link! Just click the big orange button at the upper right and fill in the blanks.

We’d love to hear from you whether or you are a brand new blogger or an old pro who has been around for years – we all have something to learn from one another!
