You choose your audience.
You choose your topic.
You choose your theme, your plugins, your widgets.
You choose when to write, what to write, and how to write it.
You decide all of those things because you’re the boss, and you answer to nobody.
But let’s face it; few endeavors are as independent-spirited as blogging.
And that’s why, as the holiday weekend approaches in the US, we’re delighted to showcase a collection of outstanding posts created by bloggers who truly embrace that spirit of independence by sharing their ideas, on their terms, with a waiting world.
Some are beginning bloggers tentatively taking their first steps; others are experienced bloggers who continue to hone their craft.
But regardless of where you’d place yourself on that spectrum – or even if you’re only now thinking of launching a blog – you’ll find plenty here to motivate and inspire you.
