Welcome to Mini-Alt Week!

This week, I am so happy to be bringing you a plethora of blogging tips and tricks from some of my favorite bloggers around! Whether you’re a new blogger or a seasoned pro, I guarantee you’re going to learn something. I know I did, just reading the emails from my wonderful contributors. The variety of responses was amazing, and it was interesting to see how all of these women approach blogging differently.

And if you don’t currently blog, I think these posts will still be interesting for you, as you’ll gain insight into how some of your favorite sites put together content day in and day out, and what it’s like to write a blog. Maybe this will even encourage you to start your own!

Here’s how the topics for the week are going to shake out. Get excited:

Today: Growing your community and Photography
Tuesday: Content and Design
Wednesday: Behind the Scenes, of course!
Thursday: Collaboration (think guest posts!) and Sponsorships
Friday: Miscellaneous items — find out what everyone thinks is the best and worst part about blogging, plus lots more.

At the end of each post, you’ll find links to the bloggers who participated in that topic. Please be sure to visit their blogs! Where applicable, I’m also including a list of resources with each post, which will hopefully give you lots of great info to bookmark.

Stay tuned, the first post on growing a blog community will be up very soon.

    This column is wonderful. Whenever we become good at something we do it is always so interesting to reflect back and think “What I wish I would have known…” Such a true thought. Thank you for taking the time to share this information.
