Hey all,

I've been thinking of a couple of new general purpose blogs that we might start on Travellerspoint, but wanted to run it past the community first.

The first idea is for a blog that could be used to have general travel topics; along the lines of "Packing for your trip" or "Choosing your backpack" , etc.. but to write these, we would rely on members submitting articles to the blog. We would edit the submitted articles, but hope to have at least one a day coming in. Backlinks would of course be provided to the user's own blog as well as a way of generating further traffic for their blogs.

The second idea is a blog purely focussing on how to blog. For new bloggers trying to figure out what to write, how to promote their blogs or improve their writing, this would be a blog to subscribe to. We would probably manage these articles ourselves, but also accept guest posts from whoever has something good to add.

Any thoughts? Would it be of interest to any of you TP bloggers? Or non-bloggers looking for a place to publish a travel article you've come up with?

I think both ideas are great!

Being (relatively) new to blogging, I would love a tutorial blog because I can use all the help I can get. I might even stop bugging you for answers... It could happen... ;)

I also like the general topics blog and have an idea for a submission already.

Ok, glad to hear we'll have at least one reader ;)

I think there are a lot of first time bloggers on Travellerspoint that would probably like to get more out of their blogging - whether it's increased exposure, more feedback, more comments, etc.. I'm envisaging this being a good learning point for those new to it.

Could you start with the Google Analytics graph embedding? Maybe by tomorrow? Okay, just a thought... (Stupid as the question may be, I still would like to know if I do it as a screen shot or some other route.) See, dumb as dirt when it comes to blogging.
