% The Bloggers Club Charter# The Bloggers Club## What is it?It's a loose grouping of people who blog and who want to blog. We decide a general topic to blog to each fortnight and then we all write to it. We can offer each other support, proof-reading, ideas, suggestions and constructive criticism.## What is it not?It's not a strict regime with a style guide and a well defined process (it's a very loosely defined process). There's no penalties for missing a deadline and there's no recriminations.## So why do it?If, like me, you:
* Struggle to think of ideas for things to blog about. * Can't get the motiviation to blog. * Don't think your point of view is important enough to be heard. * Really want to get (back) into blogging. * Want a safe place to improve your writing.
Then you could well be interested in joining us! The goals are encouragement, motivation and improvement.## What are the rules? * Be nice. * Seriously, being nice is important. * Make an honest effort to blog. It's worthwhile showing your drafts if you want to improve, even if you don't get to actually publishing. * Every 2 weeks, we publish. * Every 2 weeks, offset from the publishing date, we decide the next topic. * Criticising ideas and writing with constructive comments is fine. * Personal attacks are not. ## How do I join?If you're in this channel, you've already joined, hurrah!
