I get asked a lot about how I got started blogging and was recently interviewed by Lisette Hilton for an article in Nurse.com. It's a great article with tips and information from several nurses who blog. It's a good place to start for those of you who'd like to learn to blog about nursing or whatever your passion may be.
I got my start working for About.com as the (last) guide to Nursing. It was a terrific learning experience. And when they disbanded the Nursing site, I started up this blog to carry on. And many of my articles appear on TheNursingSite.com .
Writing guest posts for other sites is a great way to get started. I have opened this blog up to many great new and accomplished writers in the past. I will continue to do so, but due to my own time constraints right now, I'm not using guests posts for the next 2-3 months.
If you'd like my Writer's Guidelines, email me and I'll send them to you. I don't post everything I get. You DO need to be able to write and stay on subject. And it needs to be something related to nursing.
