You might think your little My Dribbble profile is already a star. If so, go ahead and enter a few blog beauty contests to see if it will snag a prize or two. Nobody willing to give you a prize? You can create a few of your own and make yourself the sole recipient. I’ve done it and it works quite well, actually.
The most successful blogs are interactive and engaging. Readers are encouraged to leave comments and other readers may respond to these comments creating an interactive environment.
When you search for WoW related online blogs or blogs that mention World of Warcraft, you might find that there are so many, you don’t know how you will keep up with all of them or go through them properly.

You can literally blog about anything and everything you can imagine. Cooking, weight loss, being a stay at home mom, marketing, celebrity gossip, photography, and business are just a few examples but the possibilities are truly endless.
Finally, use social networks. Let people know about your new blogs and about posts they may find interesting. Ask them to comment or even write a guest post about a topic on which they’re knowledgeable. Just keep in mind, you want to provide this network with real valuable information, not just a constant stream of self-promotion.
The best place to add the blog would be to the blog page on your site. It is after all, valuable content so why would you want it anywhere other than your site. If however, you don’t have a website or you would rather set up a separate blogger account, you can do so, perhaps using the WordPress Blog Account or a Google Blogger Account, which you can then link back to your site. There are various blogging sites out there, so just make sure its relevant and respected before adding, but, as we always say, content is King, so your website should benefit from a blogs content over and above any other website.
