The Process of Blogging

How do we go about writing for weblogs? How can we enrich our relationships with our readers? How can we improve on the comments capability at our sites? Dave Pollard wrote his thoughts about this, The Blogging Process. Self-described as:

“A pretentious and presumptuous attempt to document what bloggers have learned, without any formal instruction, to do every day.

“And then a description of what’s needed to make blogs a medium for real conversation.”

Fascinating reading, including an interesting flowchart and comments.
