Today’s Sub-Theme – Standout Bloggers
Our eighth sub-theme in August’s “All About You” theme is standout bloggers. This is our third and final entry in standout bloggers. On Monday, we featured Kiril Kundurazieff. On Wednesday, we featured Nina Amir. Today, you get to determine what standout blogger gets featured.
Review the bloggers you follow, and decide who you feel shows excellence in all he or she does. Then delve into their sites. Click around. Really explore and begin asking some insightful questions. Then use those questions as the basis to write an expanded profile or essay or send them off to the blogger with a request for an interview you can publish on your blog.
