    How can you have any pudding...

    ...if you don't eat your meat?

    How many blogs do you subscribe to? I thought so.

    Just as you have to look at photographs if you plan on making your own, and you need to read novels if you plan on writing one, if you want to blog well you have to read good blogs.

    Here are some examples of what I consider good blogs:
    • Rands in Repose - witty and thoughtful musings on nerd life. An excellent example of original writing blog
    • J-Walk Blog - The first blog I ever read regularly. Epitomizes the "interesting links" type of blog
    • Dark Roasted Blend - One of the best "interesting photos" blogs
    • Imaging Insider - A typical "firehose news" blog. More releases than you can possibly read, but well-summarized so you can skip the ones that don't interest you
    • The How-To Geek - One of the best "tips" blogs. He does a lot of his own research, and all his recommendations are well-explained

    Of course, I'd advise you to find your own favorites via or some other blog directory. Plus many blogs have a "blogroll", or a list of other blogs they recommend. So if you find one you like, you might find another in their blogroll.

    And don't forget to find a good RSS reader that you like. All the above are RSS subscribable (as is your new blog here on RetouchPRO), and that's how the vast majority of your readers will follow your blog.

      So what are these "various...

      Shouting into the abyss
      by Doug Nelson
      I know, some times it feels like no one is listening. This early in the blogging game, you might even be right. The search engines only found these blogs a few days ago, and it will take awhile to be indexed, ranked, etc.

      In addition, unlike the forums, there is currently no way of measuring...

      Flora, a blog is a form of diary but it is open to all your friend. It is a sharing of thoughts and ideas. BLOG - Binary Log.

      More as an experiment than anything else, I've started a blog

      Most of the information will be duplicated here in the forums, but folks really seem to like the blog format.
