Kate Nowak leads; Sam Shah follows. Both offer some great advice if you’re looking to get into blogging. Alternately, if you’re reticent and timid about the whole thing, here’s a poignant quote from Kate, three months before she wrote her first post:

So there you go.

    And be careful what you write in a comment on dy/dan, because you will never live it down.

    I believe in the same thread, Dan said something like “of course you do, you idiot” and I think that was the nudge that got me going finally. So there you go.

    Yeah, Kate’s absolutely right: if you have nothing original or a different perspective, then it’s no good to blog. That’s why I love that so many of us do. We’re not as boring as we thought we were. Especially if we leave lengthy comments on others’ blogs but don’t have our own. Good bit.
