Jon, since you're not involved with gaming blogs, you might not be aware of the Newbie Blogger Initiative, started by a gaming blogger and is running throughout this month. The idea behind it is to support and encourage new bloggers in the gaming fields, but of course there's going to be some overlap into general blogging as well.

Here's the URL for the forums supporting it: http://nbihq.freeforums.org.

Headline and Hooklines was fantastic. I have never written a press release just because I wasn't sure what to say. Boy! I do now.
