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. When About.com disbanded the Nursing site, I started up this blog to carry on. Many of my About.com 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 few 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.
