Several clients have recently expressed great interest in starting a blog.
They suddenly either feel they "need" a blog for business purposes, or they have a sincere, genuine zeal for expressing some ideas and opinions.
What links would you provide to a client who knows he "should" blog, or is excited about blogging about personal expertise and interests?
If both types of bloggers could merge a bit, the reluctant dutiful blogger catch some zeal from the wild-eyed visionary blogger, who in turn becomes a bit more pragmatic about marketing and economic opportunities, I could really have fun.
Here's my tossed together compendium of links I feel will educate, amuse, and inspire a New Blogger. It's mostly blogs, but a few interesting web sites are included as well.
