Guido’s Advice to Newbie Blogger

Chatted with bloggers last night at the Adam Smith Institute’s Dead Trees and Pyjama Kids bash. Gave some advice to newbie blogger Trevor, explained to him that proper bloggers have comments and links. “Links?” he asked quizically. Guido thinks Trevor could probably make a success of it, forinstance he seemed pretty well informed about Prescott’s mistresses. Did tell him that now he is blogging, my plan was to set up a mass market tabloid with tits. It is only fair.Trev's Blog
Afterwards Tim Worstall bought a round for everyone, Guido ungratefully said “that will give you enough material for a new book” and got bitch-slapped down by the man single-handedly leading the seventies fashion revival. All in all, the creme de la creme of the British blogging world were there to hear the Fink outline his fears for the Dead Tree Slaughterers. Mike Smithson of politicalbetting.com swapped tips with Tim Montgomerie of ConservativeHome.com whilst Perry de Havilland of Samizdata and Brian Micklethwait talked of podcasts and armed insurrection. Zack Exley’s nightmares were gathered in that room.
